Nottingham: The third Test between England and India at Trent Bridge here had to go for a fifth day after the hosts finished Day four at 311-9.

Indian bowlers were dominant with Jasprit Bumrah taking five of the nine wickets, his second five-wicket haul in the long format.

 

However, the day was not at all short of some drama as the Gujarat pacer celebrated Adil Rashid’s dismissal as captain Kohli took a catch at the slips only to realise that it was a no-ball.

Twitter wasted no time in trolling the 24-year-old and here is how they reacted.

Bumrah’s history of unfortunate no-balls in to-be-wickets goes back to the India-Pakistan clash in the ICC Champions Trophy final last year, when he would have dismissed Fakhar Zaman for three runs courtesy an MS Dhoni catch had it not been an illegal delivery.

 

As a result, India went onto lose the contest by a huge margin of 180 runs at The Oval.

Bumrah will hope to add a sixth wicket to his belt when Virat Kohli and co search for the final wicket. James Anderson (8 runs) and Adil Rashid (30 runs) are the last two batsmen at the crease for England, who need 210 more runs to win.
