Stokes starts celebrating but Jaiswal survives controversial catch scare

England's jubilation vanished as quickly as it arose. Ben Stokes, who moments ago had his hands on his head in disbelief, now stood with a resigned expression.

A tense moment unfolded on Day 4 of the 4th India vs England Test as young Indian batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal found himself at the center of a dramatic catch appeal by Ben Stokes & Co.

England’s Jubilation Cut Short:

Just as India’s batting momentum began to build, England bowler Ollie Robinson sent a delivery angling across Yashasvi Jaiswal. The left-hander offered a slight outside edge, and the ball dipped low towards wicketkeeper Ben Foakes, who dived forward and claimed the catch.

England erupted in celebration, believing they had secured a crucial breakthrough. Captain Ben Stokes even wore a look of disbelief, seemingly convinced of the dismissal.

Third Umpire Intervenes:

However, the on-field umpire, Joel Wilson, remained unfazed. He immediately referred the decision upstairs to the third umpire for review. Replays were scrutinized, and the tension mounted as the players awaited the verdict.

A Glimmer of Hope for India:

After careful analysis, the third umpire delivered the verdict: Not Out! The replays revealed that the ball had bounced before reaching Foakes’ gloves, granting Jaiswal a lifeline.

Disbelief and Relief: Ben Stokes and Yashasvi Jaiswal

England’s jubilation vanished as quickly as it arose. Ben Stokes, who moments ago had his hands on his head in disbelief, now stood with a resigned expression. Meanwhile, Jaiswal, who had initially looked uncertain, let out a sigh of relief as he continued his innings.

This close call served as a reminder of the fine margins in cricket and the importance of technology in upholding fair play. While England missed out on a crucial scalp, the drama certainly added another layer of excitement to the ongoing Test match.
