Indian veteran fast bowler Umesh Yadav tore Will Select, captain of County XI, off the stump to give his team the fourth breakthrough. India currently have a three-day warm-up squad against County Select XI in Durham ahead of the five-match Test series against England. Rhodes leaves for 11 after confronting 38 balls.
The dismissal took place in the 28th innings when Umesh Yadav came off the wicket and tossed Will Rhodes to steer his wheel off. Rhodes, along with opening batsman Haseeb Hameed, apparently stabilized things after Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj reached the highest order. Umesh Yadav currently has figures of 10-3-18-2. Nevertheless, Hameed, who got the nod in England’s Test squad, did right to himself by hitting a fifty.
Meanwhile, KL Rahul’s century saved a shaky Indian team, while Ravindra Jadeja also made 75 runs. Eventually they were compiled for 311.. But the tourists have injuries because Avesh Khan no longer played a role after injuring his left thumb on the first day. Apart from that, Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane did not take part in the three-day practice match against County Select XI in Durham because the former had a stiff back and swollen thigh muscle.
Below is the clip of Umesh Yadav firing Will Rhodes for his second wicket:
