Watch: 21-year-old yet to play first-class cricket Leicestershire pacer dismisses Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma

Ahead of the England Series Team India has been playing a four-day warm-up game in the English County circuit against Leicestershire on Thursday, June 23. However, the opening day wasn’t a pleasant one for the Indian players. Batting first after winning the toss, they scored 246 for 8 in 60.2 overs when rain halted the gameplay. A storm of critics thronged the social media criticizing Team India for their average show. The young Leicestershire pacer Roman Walker yet to play first-class cricket decimated the Indian batting line up bagging a fifer. Walker’s figures of 5 for 24 in 11 overs were pretty impressive.

Keeper-batter Srikar Bharat was the lone half centurian top-scoring for India with an unbeaten 70 off 111. He stroked eight fours and a six. Skipper Rohit Sharma was dismissed for 25 while Shubman Gill walked back after scoring 21off 28.
