IND vs WI: Chahal’s mysterious over, Umpire’s puzzling decision

The 7th over of the first innings of the 1st T20 clash between India and the West Indies has a story of its kind.

Chahal came up to bowl his very first over after Rohit commented on the stump mic – “ They (WI batsmen) only want to deal in fours and sixes, come on Chahal”.

Chahal’s very first delivery was amazingly stroked by Pooran and surprisingly debutant Ravi Bishnoi caught the ball at the end but unfortunately his misbalance steps led him to tough the ad cushions of the boundary line and the guilty debutant confessed that it was a six. The umpire on the field was not convinced though and soft-signaled it ‘out’. The 3rd Umpire finally confirmed that Ravi’s disappointed face was all because of his little mistake.

In the second last delivery of the over, Chahal’s leg-break made Mayer miss the sweep shot he intended to stroke. Mayers took the review and the wickets seemed to be 50:50 and were concluded at the umpire’s call. Mayers had to walk back with disappointment.

Kyle Mayers was playing smartly as he scored 31 runs off 24 deliveries but had to walk back after the final decision was called – OUT.
