IND vs ENG 4th Test: Nick Knight lauds Akash Deep’s temperament as pacer rattles England

IND vs ENG 4th Test: Debutant Akash Deep earns praise

“It was outstanding. Not because of the skill he showed, but because of the temperament. Being called in for your debut Test match, there is pressure that goes with that. I thought the way he controlled his mind and was able to sit on the length. He got that first wicket and he didn’t get it and I was seeing his face. He just walked back to the mark. It didn’t put him off,” Nick Knight says.

Akash Deep had a grand start when he dispatched Zac Crawley. Only for the sirens to ring indicating a no-ball. But the Bengal bowler was not disheartened. He dispatched Ben Duckett and then scalped Ollie Pope next. In the very next over, he finally he redeemed himself with a beauty of a ball to break the gates of Zac Crawley.
