India v England LIVE: Stokes takes incredible catch to remove Iyer before lunch


India 111-3 – WICKET – Iyer 26 – c Stokes b Hartley (27.1 overs)

Nah, that’s absolutely ridiculous from Ben Stokes!

Tom Hartley floats one down that invites Shreyas Iyer to come down the pitch.

He swipes one into the air, but it looks like it will have enough to make the boundary.

But nothing is safe when Stokes is there, and with the ball coming over his head, he dives to his right and takes a stunning catch in the deep.

Steve Harmison speaking to talkSPORT 2 said: “What a catch.

“He brings mid-off and mid-on, giving the India batters the chance to take on the big shot.

“Shreyas Iyer has come down the wicket and hits it into the air.

“He thinks he’s got enough on it, but Stokes is there to take a stunning catch.”

Darren Gough was also full of praise for Stokes.

He said: “Genius. Pure brilliance.

“It’s just what Stokes does.”

India 111-2 – 50 – Gill (26.3 overs)

Shubman Gill reaches 50 from 60 balls and is looking good now.

He has survived two lbw reviews and an edge at slip, but he brings up the 50 with two back-to-back fours off Rehan Ahmed.
