Former India cricketer Mohammad Kaif was seen performing the ‘Nagin dance’ after India’s emphatic victory over England at the Oval after almost five decades. Incidentally, Virat Kohli & Co produced a superlative effort with the ball to bowl out England on the fifth day to win the Test by 157 runs and go 2-1 up in the series.
Incidentally, Mohammad Kaif was a part of the Hindi commentary team for the 4th Test match of the India-England bilateral series. During his commentary stint, Kaif had made a promise to legendary opener Virender Sehwag that he will learn the steps of the famous Naagin dance if Kohli & Co. end up outclassing England at The Oval.
With Kohli-led Team India registering a famous win at the Oval, Mohammad Kaif fulfilled his promise and performed the Naagin dance for his fans and followers on social media.

India go 2-1 up in the five-match series
Rory Burns and Haseeb Hameed resumed on an overnight 77/0 and continued their partnership. Burns brought up his fifty, but fell to Shardul Thakur off the very next ball, nicking one to Rishabh Pant behind the stumps.
Hameed received a massive lifeline at 55 when Mohammed Siraj dropped a sitter at mid-on. Dawid Malan was the next batter to be dismissed run out, thanks to a miscommunication with Haseeb Hameed.
India script a famous win at the Oval, their first in 50 years.
Brilliant bowling display set India up for victory.

India broke through right after lunch with the wicket of Hameed. Jadeja reaped the reward for hitting the rough consistently and got one to spin past the outside edge of Hameed to rattle the stumps. Jasprit Bumrah got in on the act next, castling Ollie Pope to scalp his 100th wicket in Test cricket. He then sent Bairstow back to the pavilion for a duck with a trademark yorker.
England continued to lose wickets before crumbling to 210 runs, as India secured a 157 runs victory to go 2-1 up in the series.
