Pant Rahul after taking a sharp catch off Dawid Malan at Oval
The India v England Oval test match is only 2 days old but it has already moved very quickly and India who was trailing by 99 on the first innings reached 43/0 at the end of the second day.
The second day of the test has been eventful with England taking a 99 run first-innings lead after they were 64/5 early in the day when Umesh Yadav who had caused havoc by getting Root the previous evening, now followed up with the wickets of nightwatchman Craig Overton and in form Dawid Malan.
Malan hit some fine leg glances and off drives and reached 31 with the help of 5 fours when Umesh got a delivery to move away from the lefthander which Malan played and edged towards second slip where Rohit Sharma pounced onto the catch like a cheetah, showing great reflexes by diving to his right and taking it with both hands.
Soon skipper Kohli, Pant and his opening partner Rahul were all over him and hugged him as a disappointed Malan walked away. England slipped to 64/5 and India looked poised to take a surprise first-innings lead at that stage in the first hour of play under cloudy sky. Rohit hugged by Kohli, Pant Rahul after taking a sharp catch off Dawid Malan at Oval.
