Earlier in the match cricket expert and fans were also raising their voice against the umpire’s decision. This happened at Ravindra Jadeja’s catch by Root and Matthew Potts’s catch by Shreyas Iyer. Meanwhile, Brad Hogg said that the third umpire should have declared it an umpire’s call. India had already lost their review earlier for the same kind of lbw decision.

“Small pads, Shami skiddy bowler, front foot not fully on tippy-toes, was the DRS technology a little harsh on India? I felt umpires call at least, thus India would have kept the review,” .
