Bumrah & team misses an lbw appeal with England 5 runs behind leaving Kohli frustrated
The Oval test is equally poised with India wiping off 43 runs out of the 99 lead conceded to England with all their 2nd innings wickets intact. Both Rohit and Rahul rotated strike & despatched loose balls in their stay though they had a few close calls.
Earlier England recovered very well from being 62/5 in the morning. After Bairstow and Pope took the score to 151/5, Siraj trapped Bairstow lbw for 37 to open up the match for India. Moeen Ali and Pope gradually took the score to 186 for 6 when one delivery from Bumrah, who was at that stage on 99 test wickets, hit Moeen Ali on the toe. However, maybe thinking that the batter had played it Bumrah or any other team member did not appeal. Soon the TV replays showed 3 reds and the chance had come and gone.
Not only Bumrah had missed out on his 100th test wicket at that moment, England would have been 7 down with still 5 runs in deficit. Moeen was on 14 at that stage and was ultimately out at 222/7 but by that time the pressure started piling on India.
When the team realised after the replays that a chance had come and gone, the captain looked frustrated .
