Nowadays, Ben Stokes is more of a batting all-rounder, rather than bowling but what he pulled off with the ball on Sunday at Edgbaston during England's fifth Test against India raised the eyebrows of many. More importantly, it was against none other than Virat Kohli, who had no clue how to face it.

India reached 95/3 during the third session of Day 3 during the fifth Test match versus England after bowling them out for 284 in the first innings. They have now 229-run lead by the time of writing, and at this point, having taken the 2-1 lead in the five-match series, they are way favourites to win the series.

However, the Indian fans, as well as the players and his teammates would have hoped for something more half an hour earlier when Virat Kohli was in the middle. The talismanic batter looked in good touch, scoring 20 off 40 balls, before a jaffa from Ben Stokes ended his stay. It was a good length delivery, but the ball got extra bounce which surprised Kohli. Hence, it popped up off his gloves before Sam Billings dropped the chance to grab it. Still, Joe Root, well placed at first slip, was alert to take that on the rebound. As a result, the former India captain's lean patch continues.
