IND vs ENG 2021: Jonny Bairstow takes a swashbuckling catch to dismiss KL Rahul, Watch

England’s cricketer Jonny Bairstow scalped the best catch of the ongoing test series so far to give hosts a major breakthrough at the stroke of lunch on Day 3 of the ongoing ENG vs IND 3rd Test 2021 at Headingley.

Jonny Bairstow took an impressive catch at slip to remove KL Rahul. With just seven minutes remaining for the lunch break, Craig Overton’s delivery hit the shoulder of Rahul’s bat & went flying to the right of the first slip cordon. Jonny Bairstow, who was stationed at second slip, jumped to his left to grab a one-handed catch. It was a well-deserved wicket for England after an outstanding effort of 19 overs.

KL Rahul dismissed at the stroke of Lunch, India is trailing by 320 in the Second Innings

Coming back to the ongoing ENG vs IND 3rd Test 2021, visitors started day 3 on a positive note as Mohammed Shami & Jasprit Bumrah cleared England’s tail & the hosts were all out for 432 runs with a sizeable lead of 354 runs scored in the first innings.

KL Rahul & Rohit Sharma walked out to open the innings for India & keep the hopes of winning alive for the visitors. However, James Anderson & Ollie Robinson looked threatening for the Indian openers as James Anderson was leaving no stones unturned to trouble them by bowling outswingers. Adding to the difficulties was Ollie Robinson’s deadly deliveries that trouble KL Rahul a lot.

Rahul was once given out LBW but at the last moment, a review saved him as replays showed the ball was going down the leg side. Craig Overton started off on a bad note, but got into the rhythm & ended up taking the crucial wicket of KL Rahul thanks to the outstanding catch from Jonny Bairstow.
