Ravichandran Ashwin takes DRS for his bowled dismissal
In the ongoing 2nd Test match between India and New Zealand at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai India is 285 for 6 with Mayank and Axar playing in the middle.
India lost two wickets in two successive balls
In the morning session, India lost two wickets in form of Saha and Ashwin. Both these wickets are picked by Ajaz making his tally to 6 wickets in this innings till now. Both the batter got out on two successive balls of the 72nd over.
Saha was caught in front of the three-wicket and was given lbw. He walked back to the pavilion by scoring 27 runs. On the very next ball, Ashwin got clean bowled but Ashwin wanted to review the decision.
Ravichandran Ashwin thought the fielding side was celebrating a caught-behind dismissal and went for a review
Ajaz’s had lovely delivery, slowed down the pace, drifted in, and just turned enough to beat Ashwin’s forward press, flicked the back-thigh, and then went on to hit the off-stump. The zing bails light up and Ajaz finds himself on a hat-trick. Ajaz is on a roll and so are New Zealand today. So confused was Ashwin that he actually signaled for a caught behind the review, didn’t realize that he was bowled.
