Ravichandran Ashwin was left disappointed during Day 2 of the first Test match between India and England on Friday after a horrible mix-up with Ravindra Jadeja led to his dismissal. During the 91st over of the Indian innings, Ashwin played a shot off Joe Root towards cover and went for a quick single. Jadeja initially responded to his call but turned back when the fielder quickly reached the ball and threw it to the wicket-keeper. It was too late for Ashwin and he ended up running to the other side with both batters now on the non-striker end. England wicket-keeper Ben Foakes calmly collected the throw from Tom Hartley and finished the run-out. Ashwin stared at Jadeja after the dismissal and then walked back disappointed with the video of the whole incident going viral on social media.

KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja hit half-centuries to put India in command of the opening Test against England on Friday with a lead of 175 at stumps on the second day in Hyderabad.

Jadeja remained unbeaten on 81 and took charge after Rahul’s 86 to steer the hosts to 421-7.

He and fellow left-hander Axar Patel, on 35, were batting in a partnership of 63 at close of play. 

Jadeja’s fifth-wicket stand of 65 with Rahul, who looked assured in his knock laced with eight fours and two sixes, stood out in a dominant day for India, who resumed on 119-1.

The world’s top-ranked Test all-rounder then kept up the charge with wicketkeeper-batsman K.S. Bharat, who made 41 before being dismissed by Joe Root.

Root and debutant Tom Hartley have taken two wickets each on a grinding day for the tourists, who bowled 87 overs after an extended final session.
