UK All-rounder Moeen Ali fired Ravindra Jadeja on Sunday IndiaAt the end of the 4th day of the main test, his second game was delivered in heaven. Just like a typical home stadium, this surface also assisted in the turn on the 4th day-in fact, Moeen Ali got the purchase from the surface itself on the 2nd day.
On the first ball of the 80th inning, Moeen Ali, who had occupied the key goal of Ajinkya Rahane, tore the ball in the air, giving it plenty of flight-84 KPH delivery. The ball floated into the middle stump line.
With a lot of rotation of the bowler and the auxiliary court, the red cherry that has been rough so far turned-but enough to kiss the outside of Jadeja’s stump and disturb it and bail. Moeen Ali started the celebration and his teammates joined in-especially the captain Joe Root, he was happy to see further progress on his team-because Jadeja stood there dumbfounded.
England had nought Moeen Ali in for this game in place of batsman Dan Lawrence. Ali has been in superb form in white-ball cricket – in the first half of the IPL 2021 for the Chennai Super Kings and then in The Hundred for the Birmingham Phoenix.
A couple of his overs before dismissing Jadeja, the off-spinner had got rid of Ajinkya Rahane, India’s top scorer so far in the innings. Moeen Ali has been brilliant in his fifth bowler’s role, giving away 52 runs in 20 overs bagging a couple of vital scalps as Rahane was starting to accelerate his innings, and Jadeja has the capability to score quickly.
After casting 82 rounds, due to poor lighting, the early tree stumps were called. India made a total of 181 runs on the 4th day and lost 6 wickets. They led 154 times. On a slow, uneven and spin-assisted court, this may be just a few points away.
