As R. Ashwin undoes Ben Stokes with unplayable delivery, he was in disbelief

The captain of the England cricket team, Ben Stokes, who didn't have any answer to Jasprit Bumrah'sinswinging delivery in the first innings of the first Test against India, was similarly bamboozled by Ravichandran Ashwin in the second innings. Facing the ace Indian spinner, Stokes was completely beaten by the magical delivery of Ashwin on Saturday. The England skipper failed to understand how Ashwin managed to beat him all the way through.
With England losing a plethora of wickets in the second session on Day 3, the onus was on Stokes to hold one end and stop the collapse. But the all-rounder departed after scoring just six runs off 33 balls.
Here's the video.
It was the 12th time in his Test career that Stokes had become Ashwin's victim. In fact, no other bowler has managed to dismiss the England captain as many times in the longest format.
Getting the better of Stokes is nothing new for Ashwin. The India star has had the England stalwart's number for a while now.
