Indian pacer Umesh Yadav had an awkward moment while bowling his first ball of the India vs Cricket Australia XI practice match in Sydney Cricket Ground Today.
Darcy Short of Australia was on strike while 19-year-old Max Bryant was on the other side.
Umesh took a long run-up before he reached the crease but when he took a small jump to deliver the ball he slipped as his right leg did not hold the grip properly.
India and Australia will play a four-match Test series starting from December 6 in Adelaide, Australia. India is currently playing a practice match against Cricket Australia XI, where Virat Kohli, Prithvi Shaw and three other batsman scored a fluent half-century.
