In the fourth Test between England and Pakistan at Kennington Oval , London the host England were all out for 328. Moeen Ali scored a hundred and Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes  scored 55 and 45 respectively.

Apart from an innings from middle order batsman Ali, England has had a very bad time after taking the series lead with 2-1 margin as they won two consecutive Test against Pakistan.

So, Pakistan, who has won the first Test at Lord’s, now seeking a way to equalize the margin of the series.


During the fourth Test of the series England batting first lost the wicket of Alex Hales early on the match. Hales clipped a Mohammad Amir delivery to midwicket where Yasir Shah took a catch. The on-field umpires were not convinced so he called the third umpire who found the catch is legal so he gave out. But later in the match, it was found that  Yasir Shah failed to grab the ball but the third umpire didn’t pay a heed to it.

Later, yesterday, Stuart Broad raised a question it on twitter and Alex Hales himself came up with the image of the catch. It is clear that they couldn’t digest Hales’ dismissal, but umpire often makes a mistake, and ICC’s rules don’t allow players to raise a question on Umpire’s decision.


But in this case, Hales didn’t even have the chance to query for DRS as it was third umpire’s call. But, at the end of the day’s match, Hales was found to make a point about his dismissal on twitter.

Now the question is will ICC take action against Stuart Broad and Alex Hales for these tweets?
