Rahkeem Cornwall catch vs England: The West Indian all-rounder stood tall on his slip catching reputation at Old Trafford.
During the first day of the third Test of the ongoing West Indies’ tour of England in Manchester, West Indies all-rounder Rahkeem Cornwall grabbed a one-handed stunner at first slip to dismiss England opening batsman Rory Burns.
It all happened on the fourth delivery of the 48th over when Burns’ attempt to cut a Roston Chase delivery saw him edging the ball towards the right of Cornwall. In a delivery which was tad full to be cut, the southpaw erred in reading the length on this occasion.
With the ball coming off a rapid slash, it went in a jiffy to Cornwall who put out his right hand to claim the catch. Having scored his seventh Test half-century, Burns ended up scoring 57 (147) with the help of four fours.
Cornwall, who is playing this match in place of pacer Alzarri Joseph, bowled 13 wicketless overs before making his first contribution in the game.
After West Indies captain Jason Holder won the toss and put the hosts in to bat, England have lost four wickets for 127 runs at the time of writing this story.
Having made a couple of changes to accommodate a specialist batsman in Ben Stokes, England are a batsman short in this match and would be hoping for the likes of Ollie Pope and wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler to build a solid partnership over here.
