The Day One of the fifth Test between England and India at Oval provided lots of excitement on the field. Indian bowlers, especially Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah bowled some beautiful deliveries. Alastair Cook, playing his final international match, hit some wonderful shots on his way to 71. In all, cricket was the winner.
But away from all the action on the field, the fans were witnessing the some very interesting things in the commentary box. Former Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, who is part of the commentary team on this tour, was caught by cameras teaching the famous 'bhangra' to England legend, David Lloyd. Bhajji could be seen telling his Lloyd how to perform the dance step.
This came after the crowd had witnessed Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan performing the dance move during the match. Dhawan, standing near the boundary line, started doing Bhangra after the 'dhol' music started playing in the crowd.
What happened on Day One of the fifth Test between England and India at Oval is something spectators have seen throughout the series. Right from the very beginning, ie toss, to the very end, ie end of day's play, it was the same story for both the teams. Virat Kohli lost the toss yet again, fifth time in a row, and his team were asked to bowl first on a pitch which was slow and good for batting.
Openers Keaton Jennings and Alastair Cook gave their side a solid start, putting 60 for the first wicket. But Ravindra Jadeja, making his first appearance on this tour, struck a decisive blow, removing Jennings for 23.
Moeen Ali came in at No.3, and along with Cook, took the innings forward at a slow pace. They shared a 73-run stand, during which Cook reached his first fifty of the series, before the big moment arrived in the match.
Cook, batting at 71, played a loose shot which resulted in his dismissal. It followed by a flurry of wickets, as England failed to deal with the pressure. From being 133 for 1 at one point of time, they ended the day at 198 for 7.
