Joe Root’s leg-before-wing controversy aside, former England star praises Rohit Sharma and R Ashwin for a “great review”

<p>In the midst of the controversy surrounding England batsman Joe Root’s leg before wicket dismissal in the second innings of the fourth Test, former Three Lions bowler Steven Finn commended spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and skipper Rohit Sharma for taking important review. This comes after Root’s dismissal prompted former England captain Michael Vaughan to criticize Hawkeye technology. When Ashwin’s ball struck Root in the pads in the 17th over, the incident took place. As the referee shook his head, Ashwin persuaded Rohit to attempt a DRS.</p>

<p>The ball was thrown on the leg-stump line and was headed for the stumps, according to the TV replay. Vaughan took to social media to express his anger at being fired.</p>
<p>Finn, who represented England in 36 Test matches from 2010 to 2016, felt that the Hawkeye made the correct call, citing Ashwin’s “drift” in his delivery.</p>
<p>“A very good review. Although it seemed to me that it pitched outside the leg stump, Finn said on TNT Sports, the UK’s broadcaster of the current series, that Root had to leave because of Ashwin’s obvious drift.</p>
<p>Finn went on to say that Root’s wicket was significant for India and that Ashwin’s response supported it.</p>
<p>“Ashwin’s joy demonstrates the intensity with which that wicket meant to India. Although Crawley is doing well, he said, “Root was the glue that the England middle order could have played around.”</p>
<p>On the third day of the fourth Test in Ranchi on Sunday, Ashwin claimed five wickets as India knocked England out for 145, leaving the hosts needing 192 to win the series.</p>
<p>With a maximum score of 60, opener Zak Crawley led the England batting attack against India’s spin attack, as Ashwin returned numbers of 5-51 and Kuldeep Yadav 4-22.</p>
<p>Kuldeep proved to be an adept ally for Ashwin as he claimed four wickets to help India get back into the game.</p>
