Haseeb Hameed-Virat Kohli

Indian skipper Virat Kohli was seemingly annoyed with the onfield umpires after England opener Haseeb Hameed was seen marking his guard way down the pitch. He was almost close to the protected area on the pitch as he marked his guard a good 5 feet away from the popping crease Despite watching everything the on-field umpires did not take any action against Hameed which made Kohli fuming with anger.

As it turned out, Hameed was dismissed by Bumrah for a duck off 12 balls. Both England openers in fact were dismissed early as India got back into the match. Harsha Bhogle and Ajay Jadeja who were in commentary with Sony Sports explained the rules when Hameed marked his guard almost at the center pitch.

Virat Kohli Angry With Haseeb Hameed’s Antics

“Unfair play, the striker cannot mark the guard or take a stance in the protected area or so close to the protected area that frequent encroachment is inevitable” stated the law of Article 41.

Meanwhile, Rishabh Pant was warned by the onfield umpires and was asked to change his chance which was coming close to the danger area in the Headingley Test.

“Because I was standing outside the crease and my front-foot was coming into the danger area, so he (the umpire) told me that you can’t stand there” clarified Pant when asked about his stance in the third Test.

After another failure from the batters, Indian bowlers produced some quality bowling to put the visitors back in the game. Batting first, India managed only 191 runs, thanks to some exemplary hitting from Shardul Thakur, who scored 57 off 36 balls including three sixes.

In reply, Jasprit Bumrah put England right on top removing both the English openers to have the hosts at 6/2. Joe Root and Dawid Malan tried to bail out England but Umesh Yadav produced an absolute beauty to get rid of Root (21) to put India back right in front.

At the end of the day’s play, England are at 53/3, still trailing by 138 runs.
