Watch: Gabriel bowls a peach of an inducker to dismiss Sibley
After almost four months, cricket is finally back as England and West Indies locked horns with each other on July 8. There were some good moments recorded during the match and one of which is a minute’s silence of rich tributes to Health workers fighting a battle against the coronavirus epidemic and also the demise of great Sir Everton Weekes.
England and West Indies players including the match officials took a knee in support of the Black Lives Matter movement before the first Test in Southampton. As cricket restarted, several players and former players took to their social media platforms to express joy and excitement.
Case in point, during the 10th ball of the match, Gabriel pitched in delivery outside off-stump to Dominic Sibley in what was potentially an absolute in ducker which left the batsman completely puzzled.
The ball went on to hit the top of off-stumps and thus England lost the first wicket without scoring runs. It was the kind of dismissal cricket fans expected and the video of Gabriel dismissing Sibley started doing rounds on all social media portals.
Here’s the video:
