Australia is struggling at the moment in Dharamsala as new-ball did the trick for the host’s bowlers after having the slender of a lead of 32 runs.

On the first ball of 27th over, when off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin’s ball came off from the turf and further straightened to hit Matthew Wade on his knee roll which witnessed the long shout from the close-in fielders so as the bowler itself.

After the decision, the stand-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane had gone upstairs straightaway after discussing with the bowler and wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha.

However, after going upstairs the replays suggested the ball had clipped the top of the middle stump as the decision has been upheld after the umpires call (Marias Erasmus).

Wade further went on his back foot to play for the turn which further kept straight and hit him on the flap as the ball looked missing the stumps in the real-time.

According to the third umpire Chris Gaffney, the ball-tracker showed no inside edge before staying with the on-field umpire’s call.

Interestingly, the replays suggested Virat Kohli, who is nursing his shoulder injury was excited as Rahane went upstairs without wasting a time.

Earlier, India was bundled out for 332 after Wriddhiman Saha and Ravindra Jadeja put on 96 for the sixth wicket before Australia picked all-four wickets in the first session.
