- The incident happened on Day 2 of the second Test.
- Cook was dismissed for just two runs.
- England need 404 runs to win the Vizag Test with a day remaining.
It was the third delivery of the third over on Day two of the second Test, which the pacer expected to go right into the gloves of Wriddhiman Saha.
However, the ball pitched straight to the top of off-stump and not only that but it broke it into two pieces. The top part of the off stump went flying while the bottom part stayed grounded.
Team India were bundled out for 204 on the fourth day, setting a target of 404 for England to win the second Test at Vizag.
After the top-order failed in the second innings, it was the Indian Test skipper, Virat Kohli who took charge. He top-scored with a score of 81 with Jayant Yadav being the next best with 27 runs off 59 balls.
Indian spinners have not been every effective so far in the series. The duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja together bagged only nine wickets in the first Test at Rajkot.
However, Ashwin bounced back in the second Test with a fifer in the first innings. It will be interesting to watch if Indian bowlers can put India 1-0 up in the five-Test series.
