In the ongoing 4th Ashes test at Sydney, England have scored 30/0 at Stumps on Day 4, requiring another 358 runs to win. Australian bowlers have to take 10 wickets to go 4-0 up in the series. While talking about day 4, English bowlers had to work extra hard to contain the Aussie batters. 

When fast bowling proved fruitless, captain Joe Root decided to bowl himself. In his spell, the English skipper bowled a short of length delivery, a video of which is getting viral on social media. Cricket Australia have shared this video on their official Twitter handle. 


In this video, one can see twin-century scorer Usman Khawaja is on strike while Root, who is bowling the first ball of the over, bowls a short pitch delivery which receives an uneven bounce and goes as a bounce to Khawaja, who ducks to avoid getting hit on the head.

After this delivery, Usman Khawaja is seen jibing in a friendly manner with Joe Root, telling him that his quota of one bouncer in an over is done, while Root is seen smiling. Talking about the match, day 5 of this test promises to bring excitement and thrill as the two teams battle it out in a game where three results are possible right now.
