James Anderson bowled a couple of bumpers to Shreyas Iyer who seemingly struggles against the short ball. The lower-middle order batter kept the first two at bay, although not in convincing fashion, but ended up being strangled down the leg off the third. Credit must also go to Sam Billings for putting in a full-length dive to grab a one-handed screamer. Iyer was playing his shots with typical exuberance before departing on the penultimate ball of the 27th over of the innings. Anderson, who rarely resorts to bumpers, changed tact against Iyer and reaped rich rewards.
Ooooooh what a catch @sambillings!! 🤲
