Broad to Pujara, out Bowled!! This is a brilliant ball and it’s got to be a good nut to go through Pujara’s gate with the way he was batting. Was always wondering why Broad’s bowling scrambled seam when there’s swing out there. Took a long time in the first innings too – maybe 8-9 overs – to try for swing.
He bowls the cutters usually but this time he bowls a lovely inswinger with the seam up pointing towards fine leg and Pujara didn’t expect that. He was totally surprised by th movement in the air, overadjusted and played inside the line, the ball takes the pad and knocks out the off stump.
If it was a plan to set him with up scrambled seam balls for a long time and then cleverly slip in the inswinger, great thought then.
Here is the clip of that video:
