Indian captain Virat Kohli gets his second consecutive review in the spot, as Mohammed Shami was eventually rewarded for his relentless accuracy by the dismissal of Jonny Bairstow [29 off 71] on the battle of Tea break.
It all happened on the 2nd delivery of the 51st over when Mohammed Shami got one of the seams.
Bairstow was caught in the fold when the ball hit him on his front leg.
It seems stone-dead to the naked eye, but the referee thought Bairstow could possibly get an inside on his pads.
Virat Kohli asked his teammates whether Bairstow had gained an advantage or not. Neither Rishabh Pant nor Mohammed Shami were completely confident.
Kohli, however, eventually went for the review, and to his and every Indians’ delight, the decision was confirmed, as Ultra Edge shows that there is no inside.
The ball tracking confirmed that the ball would hit the bone stump, leading to another roar from the Indian skipper.
Bairstow’s wicket comes at a perfect time for Team India as he and Joe Root threaten to take the match away from India.
Bairstow, who survived an exhausting anxiety earlier in the session, scored 72 runs for the 4th wicket, but India claim that the former’s wicket forced the match back into the balance in the battle of the Tea Break.
