Having experienced little success with the Decision Review System referrals in the first two Tests at Pune and Bengaluru respectively, the Indian team finally made a good review in the ongoing third Test at Ranchi.

The incident happened in the 26th over of the innings when Shaun Marsh was initially given not out by the umpire after he seemed to have edged a R Ashwin delivery straight to the short leg fielder. The left-handed batsman tried to play a spinning delivery around his front pad. However, the ball drifted a lot and the Australian batsman could not play his shot confidently. As a result, the ball flew off his pad to short leg where Cheteshwar Pujara took the catch with the brilliant dive. However, the umpire gave his decision in the favour of the batsman much to the surprise of the Indian fielders. But the home team was very convinced that they had got their man and reviewed it immediately. Replays showed the ball had touched the bat before being taken at short leg and the umpire had to overturn his original decision.

Here is a clip of that dismissal:

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
