Ashwin and Bumrah accounted for 3 wickets each, while Nadeem and Ishant took 2 wickets each. Joe Root scored his fifth double century which was laced with 19 boundaries and 2 maximums.

After using all his main bowlers, Kohli turned to Rohit Sharma to provide a breakthrough against the run of play. Sharma only bowled two overs giving away 7 runs and remained wicketless. Though his bowling figures didn’t attract a lot of viewers, his bowling action surely did. The Hitman copied the bowling action of the former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh.
Sharma did exceptionally well imitating the Turbanator. He started the run-up just like Harbhajan used to do and stretched his arms wide exactly like the former Indian spinner.
