(Video) Wood commits the cardinal sin of taking on Jadeja’s rocket arm

Terrible communication led to Mark Wood frittering away his wicket in the dying throes of day three at Lord’s. Having clipped a good-length ball behind square, the tail-ender sprinted blind for the brace without even bothering for the consent of Joe Root, who wisely decided against the second run after spotting the livewire that is Ravindra Jadeja in the deep. Wood realised his partner hadn’t responded only when he was halfway down the track as a gun throw saw Pant knock the bails off.
