Umpire’s call has saved Rishabh Pant from getting out by LBW. Ball struck Rishabh’s pads on the back foot but umpire gave it not out. England took the DRS but the screen showed that the ball was clipping the bails & the decision went into the favor of Rishabh Pant.
Earlier England won the toss on Day 1 & elected to bat first. England had a poor start after losing early wickets. Despite a brilliant half century by Ben Stokes, England was wrapped up for 205 runs. Axar Patel continues his top form by scalping four wickets whereas Ashwin took three wickets. Mohammed Siraj also registered two wickets & Sundar grabbed the crucial wicket of Ben Stokes. India will look forward to build a steady strong partnership on Day 2 & gain a strong lead whereas England will be aiming for scalping quick wickets.
