Ollie Pope's remarkable innings of 196 and debutant Tom Hartley's 7-wicket haul in the second innings helped England win the 1st Test against India by 28 runs.
The first Test between India and England saw the visiting side clinch victory by 28 runs, in a game that seemed nearly out of their grasp. Ollie Pope's remarkable innings of 196 paved the way for England's lead, while debutant Tom Hartley staged a remarkable comeback with a 7-wicket haul in the second innings. However, following the match, two significant events involving India's Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja unfolded.
Bumrah was handed an official reprimand for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during the match of the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) series. He was found guilty of inappropriate physical contact with Ollie Pope, violating Article 2.12 of the ICC Code of Conduct. It states, inappropriate physical contact with a Player, Player Support Personnel, Umpire, Match Referee or any other person (including a spectator during an International Match".
Bumrah's actions occurred in the 81st over of England's second innings, when he deliberately stepped in the way of Pope's run after completing his follow-through. Additionally, one demerit point has been added to Bumrah’s disciplinary record, marking his first offence in 24 months.
On the other hand, star all-rounder Jadeja may miss the 2nd Test against England in Visakhapatnam due to an injury sustained on Day 4 of the first Test. Jadeja appeared to have pulled his hamstring, which could explain his run-out by England skipper Ben Stokes during the host nation's second innings.
Doctors have advised Jadeja to rest as he is currently experiencing difficulty walking and is not in optimal health. A decision on his participation will be made soon, as the team prepares to travel to Vizag tomorrow.
During the post-match press conference, head coach Rahul Dravid said, "We'll see. I honestly haven't had a chance to speak to the physio as yet. Once I get back, I'll speak to him and see what it is about".
