Rahul at second slip, who did nicely to take the low catch.

Shamarh Brooks was then caught useless in entrance of the stumps with an inswinger. Brooks reviewed the choice however replays solely confirmed that the ball can be hitting the wicket if it wasn’t for his entrance pad.

Chase then took a full swinger low on his pads. The umpire turned down the LBW attraction from the Indian gamers however captain Virat Kohli went for the overview.
