Another soft dismissal as Ravindra Jadeja gifts wicket to Root in Rajkot

Joe Root, who dropped Rohit Sharma on Day 1, redeemed himself with this crucial wicket.

India vs England 3rd Test, Day 2: Dismissal of Ravindra Jadeja on Day 2 of the Rajkot Test against England brought back unwelcome memories for Indian fans. His soft dismissal, mirroring Yashasvi Jaiswal’s in the first Test, raised questions about throwing away potential runs.

Ravindra Jadeja departs: IND vs ENG

After his valiant century on Day 1, Ravindra Jadeja’s innings ended abruptly on 112 on Day 2. Chasing a wider delivery from Joe Root, he closed the face too early, resulting in a leading edge that popped back to the bowler for a simple catch.

The hometown boy will be unhappy on failing to score a daddy hundred and putting India in a dominant position.

Double Blow for India:

This dismissal followed Kuldeep Yadav’s earlier exit, leaving India at 331/7, having resumed at 326/5. The quick wickets handed England the momentum they desperately needed after a dominant Indian day.

Joe Root redemption

Joe Root, who dropped Rohit Sharma on Day 1, redeemed himself with this crucial wicket.

His bowling had been disciplined throughout the morning, and the catch capped off a fine spell.

India in a fix?

With three key wickets left, India faces a crucial test. Can the lower order step up and build a substantial total, or will England capitalize on the soft dismissals and restrict them cheaply?
