Ravichandran Ashwin and substitute fielder Rajat Patidar made a meal of what should have been a relatively easy effort to prevent a boundary on day 3 of 1st Test between India and England. With Ollie Pope playing a sweep shot off Ravindra Jadeja through the mid-wicket region, both Ashwin and Patidar kept staring at one another as the ball trickled through towards the boundary.

The incident occurred in the 50th over of the innings, with Pope batting on 77. He crafted a well-executed sweep shot, with Ashwin giving it a chase while Patidar also came running in from the right, but both kept staring at one another, hoping for the ball to be stopped.

Ollie Pope's sensational 100 keeps England afloat in Hyderabad:

England, meanwhile, have put on a much better show with the bat in their 2nd dig, led by Zak Crawley and Ben Duckett showing the way again. Although the tourists lost Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, and Ben Stokes for not many runs, Ollie Pope dug deep to bring his 5th Test century off 154 deliveries.

Axar Patel ended his partnership of 112 with Ben Foakes with the one that stayed low. Team India resumed day 3 on 421-7, but got bowled out for 436 as three batters in Ravindra Jadeja, KL Rahul, and Yashasvi Jaiswal departed in the 80s.
