Indian team waiting for third umpire’s review against England’s Zak Crawley. | Photo Credit: DEEPAK KR The turning point on the fourth day of the second Test was perhaps the dismissal of Zak Crawley. The England opener was batting on 73 when the umpire turned down Kuldeep Yadav’s appeal for lbw, but India reviewed the decision and the DRS ruled him out. England captain Ben Stokes believes the technology got it wrong. “Technology in the games is obviously there and there is an understanding that it can never be 100% correct,” he said at a post-match press conference. “So that’s why we have got the umpire’s call and everything. And when it is not 100% correct, as everyone says, I don’t think it’s unfair for someone to ever say that. I think technology has got it wrong on this occasion. T...

Raj Limbani: A swing bowler from Rann of Kutch shining in U19 World Cup

Day 4, Start of play: England are 67/1 and require 332 runs to win with Zak Crawley (29) and Rehan Ahmed (9) in the middle Nasser Hussain on Zak Crawley: ‘India is the best place to bat at top of the order’ Jimmy Anderson had forewarned after Stumps on Sunday that even a target of 600 wasn’t big enough to keep England from chasing it, let alone 399. Crawley and Ahmed live up to Anderson’s claim, scoring at almost 4.5 runs per over. The former brings up his fifty. Nasser Hussain on Sky Sports: “From where Crawley was a year ago – everyone calling for his head, and that he shouldn’t be in the Test side – look at how he played in the Ashes, look how he’s playing now.

NEW DELHI: Stranded on 499 Test wickets after the Vizag Test, Ravichandran Ashwin's wait in joining the exclusive '500 Club' got a bit longer on Monday.Beginning the second Test at 496 wickets, Ashwin was expected to reach the landmark in this game itself but the veteran off-spinner had a below-par outing with the ball in both the innings.
