    The incident happened during the 53rd over of South Africa’s second innings. South African batsman Rassie van der Dussen was beaten by a delivery from Pakistan spinner Nauman Ali. The right-hander failed to read the straighter one from Ali. The ball missed Dussen’s forward defense and crashed on his front pad.

    Pakistani fielders got excited and appealed for leg-before wicket. But the umpire didn’t budge. As it was a close call, Pakistan discussed about referring the decision to the third umpire. However, skipper Babar Azam was unsure about the Dussen having an inside-edge. He discussed with the wicket-keeper Mohammad Rizwan about it and suddenly from nowhere, asked the batsman whether he has hit the ball. The spontaneous reaction from Azam made even the commentators laugh.
