A Ben Stokes non-catch off Shubman Gill created unnecessary displeasure for Joe Root and Stuart Broad, and plenty of chatter on social media in the ongoing third Test between India and England at the Narendra Modi stadium in Ahmedabad.
Stokes, who was standing at second slip when Stuart Broad found the outside edge of India opener Gill’s bat, appeared confident while claiming the low catch in the second over of the Indian innings in the post-tea session of the day-night Test. The on-field umpire gave the soft signal as out. But the TV umpire was quick to spot that the ball had touched the ground before Stokes completed the catch.
The England camp was unhappy, with Stokes laughing sarcastically and Root, along with Broad, having a word with the on field umpire.
