Anderson to Vijay, out Bowled!! What a ball! Just another outswinger it appears but Anderson is a magician with the new ball. Pitching on a good length, angled in, seam perfectly pointing towards first slip, so that was an aimed away swinger.
Vijay was leaving those deliveries that were outside off stump earlier, now Anderson cleverly starts very straight and pitches on middle stump line and then gets it move away, completely opening up Vijay, making him look like a club batsman.
He wanted to play across the line towards the on-side and that’s a really bad ploy against the away-going ball and the ball hits the top of off stump. People should learn from Anderson. No real pace on this ball.
There’s a lot of movement in the air and off the pitch, he bowls four outswingers, but doesn’t get carried away and try anything extravagant. Just keeps it simple and sticks to what was working and gets the reward. Root wanted early wickets at the toss and one’s come as early as the opening over.
Here is the clip of that video:
