England Slammed On Social Media, Called ‘Cheats’ For Claiming And Celebrating Grounded Catch Of Yashasvi Jaiswal

The second day of the fourth India vs England Test has seen an intriguing contest. After England got all out for 353 in the first innings, the Indian cricket team got an early jolt as Rohit Sharma fell cheaply. However, young guns Shubman Gill and Yashavi Jaiswal stitched a solid stand to fend off the England attack. Both batters scored at a steady rate before Shpiab Bashir scalped the wicket of Shubman Gill. before that, there was a controversial moment in the day’s play, when England started celebrating after a grounded catch of Yashasvi Jaiswal

The incident happened in the 20th over of India’s innings with Ollie Robinson bowling to Yashasvi Jaiswal. After looking at the first replay, Ben Stokes and Co. started celebrating as the ball was edged by the Indian batter and went to wicketkeeper Ben Foakes. The third umpire decided after a couple of replays that the fall had dropped. 

“These England cricketers are f****** cheats. Look at their cheap expressions as soon as the third umpire gave Yashasvi Jaiswal not out. It seems they have gone blind,” wrote another X user by the name of @ShivaramManjun2

Earlier, Ollie Robinson gifted away his wicket after making a career-best 58 that resulted in England’s first innings ending at 353 even as Joe Root remained unbeaten on 122 on the second day of the fourth Test against India.

England had made a solid start this morning, making Indians toil hard without success before Robinson’s choice of shot — a reverse sweep — off Ravindra Jadeja brought India back in the opening session.

It ended a dogged 102-run stand between Robinson and Root.

In their reply, India lost skipper Rohit Sharma (2) cheaply to be 34 for one at lunch, trailing England by 319 runs. Veteran James Anderson saw the back of Rohit with a delivery that moved away slightly off the surface after pitching on a perfect length, taking edge from Indian captain’s bat that was taken by Ben Foakes.

Yashasvi Jaiswal (27 batting) was his usual confident self and giving him company was Shubman Gill (4) at the break.

England added 51 valuable runs to their overnight total of 302/7 as the Indian attack failed to make early penetration. The last five England batters added 241 runs after being 112/5 at lunch on the opening day.

While Mohammed Siraj (2/78) erred in his line and length, debutant Akash Deep could not add to his tally of three wickets to return with 3/38 from 19 overs.

For India, Ravindra Jadeja took all the three wickets to return with 4/67 from his 32.5 overs.

Root, who dug in deep with his classical century spanning a little more than six hours, remained stranded on 122 from 274 balls (10×4).
