A golden opportunity to see the back of Rohit Sharma fell into England’s basket, but Rory Burns made a meal of it in the slip cordon. The thick edge flew to the weaker hand of Burns, who was caught unawares and attempted to reach out in an ungainly manner. This was the sixth catch England let slip in the ongoing Test at The Oval. Interestingly, the last time they dropped this many in a home Test was the last game of the 2019 Ashes at the same venue.
Does Rory Burns need to be more ‘goalkeeper’ in the slip cordon? 🤔#ENGvIND | 🏴🆚🇮🇳
