Watch: Ravichandran Ashwin Dismiss Joe Root In Pink-Ball Test

After Ishant Sharma dismissed Dom Sibly for a duck, the Indian spinners Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin took a wicket apiece.

Ravichandran Ashwin got the big wicket of England skipper Joe Root to peg the opponents further back in the Pink-ball Test match at Motera stadium. Root was the third English wicket to fall inside the first session of play after England won the toss and opted to bat first. After Ishant Sharma dismissed Dom Sibly for a duck, the Indian spinners Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin took a wicket apiece.

Ravichandran Ashwin had a decision turned down against him. Zak Crawley found himself to be very lucky after the onfield decision of not out stood as it is after Indian skipper Virat Kohli decided to review the decision.

In his very next over, he trapped Joe Root plumb in front of the wicket as he played him off the backfoot. Root and Crawley had a 47-run stand before Ashwin got the better of the England skipper. Watch the video below.

Ravichandran Ashwin Gets Joe Root

England skipper Joe Root won the toss and elected to bat first as both teams entered the ground amid huge cheers. Ishant started the proceedings and immediately struck to remove Dominic Sibley for a duck. A simple outswinger found the edge of Sibley and it was a regular catch for Rohit Sharma.

Seeking an opportunity, Virat Kohli immediately brought in Axar Patel which paid dividends immediately as the local boy removed Jonny Bairstow, playing his first game of the series for a duck leaving England in all sorts of trouble at 27 for two.

The ball was arrowed in straight and three reds are what the ball tracker suggested. The umpire was sure though and hence England have ended up losing a review. A wicket from the first ball for the local boy and India struck twice within the first hour of the match.
