New Delhi: Cricket fans on Wednesday trolled Ravindra Jajeda after the India all-rounder took a wicket off no-ball on the final day of third and final Test against Sri Lanka in Delhi. (SCORECARD || DAY 4 BLOG)
After setting a 410-run target for Sri Lanka, India got off to a good start on Day 5 with birthday boy Jadeja getting the wicket of former Lanka captain Angelo Mathews.
A brilliant catch at first slip by Ajinkya Rahane, Jadeja's probing spell and also Mathews' inability to decode the set-up were the highlights of the dismissal.
But all those facets were trumped by a basic fact that the wicket was off a no-ball, with the umpire missing the errant front-foot of the bowler.
Interestingly, Jadeja was denied another wicket, that of Dinesh Chandimal after he bowled Lankan skipper. This time, the umpires were extra cautious and settled it with an umpire's call. Tight indeed.
At Lunch on final day, Lanka were still 291 runs aways from the target for an improbable win and level the three-match series.
