This is what Ishant can do. When he pitches it up he becomes doubly dangerous. Lovely seam presentation as well. Definite reverse for Ishant, curved in beautifully and right through du Plessis’ whip. The middle stump is knocked back and India have Faf.
What a beauty from Ishant Sharma, the ball jags back in after pitching outside off stump, it clatters onto the middle stump. Faf Du Plessis looking to drive it but the ball goes through the gap between bat and pad. He departs for 63.
Ishant has done it. Sends back Faf for 63 with a beauty. Faf was looking to attack and the expansive drive sees a big gap between bat and pad and the wickets go for a toss. This could be an early lunch if the Indians manage to get the last wicket early.Faf du Plessis scored a well 63 runs off 142 balls with the help of 9 fours.
