The day continues to get worse and worse for the Joe Root-led England Cricket Team in the ongoing second Test in Chennai as they lost their sixth wicket at the score of 87.

After having lost their first five wickets for a mere 52 runs, England stitched a valuable 6th wicket stand thanks to Ben Foakes and Ollie Pope.

However, just as it looked like the visitors were slowly getting themselves out of the hole, an inspired bowling change by skipper Virat Kohli did the trick for the home side.

Kohli introduced Mohammed Siraj in the attack for the first time and the fast bowler took just one delivery to claim his maiden Test wicket on home soil.

But more than Mohammed Siraj, the wicket belonged to wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant, who claimed an outstanding one-handed grab down the leg-side.

It was a short delivery angling down the leg-side by Siraj, with a boundary written all over it. However, Ollie Pope shuffled and jabbed at it inside the line, leading to the thickish edge which flew to the left of wicketkeeper Pant.

Pant went one-handed with the dive, caught it but just as his hand touched the ground, the ball spilled from his gloves. However, the 23-year-old kept his composure and managed to roll his gloves off his face, onto his chest, and then finally into his left hand.
