Cricket enthusiats assembled at Chennai’s iconic Chepauk stadium witnessed Ben Stokes athleticism as the England all-rounder was seen walking around on the support of his hands. The crowd present at the venue applauded the England all-rounder and responded back with a loud cheer following Stokes’ handstand.
Stokes has so far bowled just two overs in the ongoing contest between India and England and the team would hope for a miraculous show from the all-rounder in a sharp-turning Chepauk track. He had just managed to add 18 runs in the first innings before R Ashwin sent the all-rounder back to the pavilion.

Meanwhile, Ashwin led India’s fight on Day 3 but this time with the bat. The India spinner went on to slam his fifth Test ton as the hosts scored 286 in their second innings, thus setting a 482-run target for Joe Root and co.
Ashwin was the last Indian batsman to be dismissed as the 34-year-old scored 106 from 148 deliveries. India skipper Virat Kohli, who was stunned by Moeen Ali on 0, also showed some fight with the bat and scored 62 before getting trapped LBW by the same bowler.
