Indian middle-0rder batsman Ajinkya Rahane was dismissed caught and bowled by England pace bowler Chris Jordan in morning session of the fifth Test at The Oval. However, later replays showed that Jordan’s hand made contact with the ground after taking the catch.

In replays shown by the broadcasters during England’s innings, Rahane’s caught and bowled dismissal by Jordan was shown again in great depth. It was evident that the catch was not as clear as was initially thought. Jordan’s accepted the catch but later fell on the ground. However, it was inconclusive whether the ball actually made contact with the ground or whether it was safely in Jordan’s hands.

India were bowled out for a paltry 148, with MS Dhoni’s fighting 82 being the sole bright spot on an otherwise abysmal day for the visitors. Ajinkya Rahane, however, is one of the in-form batsmen, and had he not been dismissed at that point, it is possible that India could have scored a few more runs and been in a more secure position.
