Indian captain Virat Kohli got his second successive review bang on target as Mohammed Shami was eventually rewarded for his relentless accuracy via the dismissal of Jonny Bairstow [29 off 71] at the stroke of Tea break.
It all happened on the 2nd delivery of the 51st over when Mohammed Shami got one to nip back off the seam.
Bairstow was caught in the crease as the ball went on to strike him on his front leg.
It looked stone dead to the naked eye but the umpire thought that Bairstow may have got an inside edge onto his pads.
Virat Kohli asked his teammates if Bairstow had got an edge or not. Neither Rishabh Pant nor Mohammed Shami were entirely confident.
However, Kohli eventually went for the review, and to his and every Indian’s delight, the decision was vindicated as Ultra Edge showed that there was no inside edge.
The ball tracking confirmed that the ball would have gone on to hit the leg-stump, leading to yet another guttural roar by the Indian skipper.
The wicket of Bairstow came at a perfect time for Team India as he and Joe Root were threatening to take the game away from India.
Bairstow, who had survived a run-out scare earlier in the session, had stitched 72 runs for the 4th wicket but with India claiming the former’s wicket at the stroke of the Tea break had once again forced the game into the balance.
