    Adil Rashid to roll his arm over now. Let’s see how he uses the rough patch.

  • 6:34 PM IST
    Kohli bamboozled by a delivery which has kept very low. He has been struck in front and Root has quite quickly challenged the decision.

    The impact has come to the rescue of Kohli! He must have had his heart in his mouth. A brilliant decision from Dharmasena this. England have exhausted both their reviews now. Coming back to the ball, it is tossed up on the rough patch outside off. Virat camps back to deal with it but the ball keeps extremely low to go past his defense and he is hit flush on the pads. Ali and Co rise up in a vociferous appeal but the umpire stays put. Root has a chat with his mates and immediately takes the DRS. Time for the replays. Hawk Eye shows that the impact is outside off and that is the end of the story
