Drama here at the Eden Gardens!

Pandya gets caught by Smith, but is given not-out because of the waist-high full-toss.

Meanwhile, Smith realised there was a possibility that it could be a no ball and ran out Pandya, who surprisingly left his wicket and walked off before the catch was taken.

The Aussies were furious that even though it was a no ball, why was Pandya given not out even after being clearly run out.

The umpires stuck by their decision, and after some research it was revealed that the ball was dead once the catch was taken and thus Pandya was indeed not out.

Aaand to top it all, the players had to leave the field after that all the drama because of rain.



Bhuvi nearly takes Pandya's head off!

A thundering straight drive by Bhuvi and the ball crashes into Pandya's helmet at the other end. He simply didn't have time to avoid getting hit.

The Indians not looking for boundaries at the moment. Dealing in ones and twos.

Australia wouldn't mind this.

IND - 154/3 after 31 overs.
