The fifth and final Test between England and India at Kennington Oval is currently underway and the match has no significance as far as the series is concerned. The home team had the upper hand for a chunk of the first day’s play, but some resolute performances by the Indian bowlers ensured that the visiting team ends the day being in a position of command.
In the meantime, the commentary box was a witness to some entertainment. Harbhajan Singh, who is serving his stint with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), broke into ‘Bhangra’- a popular dance form in the northern part of India. The off-break bowler hails from Jalandhar, a city in the state of Punjab. Robert Key and David Lloyd were present inside the box.
The 38-year-old also taught Lloyd the dance form and thereafter the former English cricketer flayed his hands and pulled the dance off gracefully. Later, the Indian offie posted the video of the same and wrote, “@BumbleCricket does the Bhangra – with some help from @harbhajan_singh!”
Here is the video

A topsy-turvy day
Joe Root won the toss for the fifth time in the series and decided to bat first. Keaton Jennings and Alastair Cook looked determined to stave off the Indian bowling with ease. The duo put on an important stand of 60 runs to start the day for the Three Lions. Ravindra Jadeja, who missed the first four matches, drew first blood and got the better of left-handed Jennings.
Nevertheless, Cook and Moeen Ali scored half-centuries to shoulder their team to a comfortable position. However, all their good work was undone as the likes of Jasprit Bumrah and Ishant Sharma came into their own and picked up wickets at regular intervals. In the end, the Brits could only manage 198 runs for the loss of seven wickets in their 90 overs.
