On day two, Dhawan was outfoxed by a well-disguised wrong ‘un as he ran down the track without reading the variation.

Shikhar Dhawan, with a breezy knock of 44 off 63 balls in the second innings of the third Test against England, might have secured his place for the reminder of the series, but the Delhi batsmen, when he got out to Adil Rashid in the 24th over, became first Indian opener since Pankaj Roy in 1952 to be stumped in England.

On day two, Dhawan was outfoxed by a well-disguised wrong ‘un as he ran down the track without reading the variation. He got deceived in flight first and then tries to defend it but that spun away and Jonny Bairstow did the stumping easily.

In 1952, Roy was stumped off legspinner Roly Jenkins by the famed England wicketkeeper Godfrey Evans for 19 in the first Test of the four match series in 1952.

Roy made 19 was the second Indian wicket to fall in the first innings. England won the match by seven wickets.

Prior to this, Indian opener Mustaqi Ali was out stumped in 1936.
