The New Zealand batter Ross Taylor was beaten by the arm ball of the left arm spinner Axar Patel, and the wicket keeper Saha was also deceived from the delivery. The umpire gave the decision of the ball hitting the edge of Taylor’s bat, and instead of giving it as byes, he gave it as the runs. Then Virat Kohli said,
“Ye kya karte hain yaar ye log yaar… Main udhar aajata hu tum idhar aajao”.
