Zak Crawley, who had been building a solid innings, was dismissed for 79 runs. He had already survived a dropped catch earlier in his innings, but Kuldeep Yadav magical delivery left him with no answer.

Kuldeep Yadav exploits Bat-Pad gap

The dismissal came in the 38th over, with Zak Crawley attempting a booming cover drive against a full and outside off-stump delivery.

Crawley Falls Short of Century

With this dismissal, Zak Crawley falls short of his much-awaited hundred in the series. However, his knock has provided England with a much-needed platform. The responsibility now falls on captain Ben Stokes, to build a crucial partnership and help England capitalize on the start provided by Crawley.

Kuldeep Yadav magic delivery not only puts England under pressure but also serves as a reminder of his crucial role in India’s bowling attack, especially on surfaces that offer limited assistance to the spinners.
