Bombay: The third day (Friday) of the Sydney test match between England and Australia (ENG vs AUS) saw a strange phenomenon. This strange thing happened after lunch (in the second session) on the third day of the match. On the first ball of the 30 at the end of the inning, Ben Stokes tried to drop the ball. The Australian players appealed, thinking that the ball had hit the pads. Referee Paul Rifle also heard the call from the Australian players. (Ben Stokes survives despite ball hitting stump; Shane Warne, Sachin Tendulkar react)
Ben Stokes immediately took DRS against the decision. Everyone was surprised to see what appeared on the replay. The ball did not hit the bat or the pads. In fact, the ball hit the stumps. The bells, however, did not fall, so Stokes briefly survived.
We have to be fair to the bowlers: Tendulkar
Seeing this strange incident, veteran cricketer Sachin Tendulkar came out in support of the bowlers. Commenting on the incident, Sachin Tendulkar said: “Even after the ball hit the stumps, the bells did not fall. What do you think? You have to be fair to the bowlers.
Should a law called ‘hitting the stumps’ be introduced after the ball has hit them but not dislodged the bails? What do you guys think? Let’s be fair to the bowlers! 3shanewarne#Testingpic.twitter.com/gSH2atTGRe

I’ll take this matter to the cricket world: Warne
Veteran Australian spinner Shane Warne commented on Sachin’s tweet. Warne responded that this needed to be discussed. Warne tweeted: “This is very interesting and can be discussed, my friend. I will take it to the World Cricket Committee for discussion and then tell you. There has never been such a thing as today before. Green’s ball had a speed of 142 km per hour and hit the stumps very fast.
Interesting point and one to discuss my friend. I will take this to the world cricket committee for discussion and will speak to you again. I never saw anything like it today – Greene’s delivery was 142km / h and he hit the stump hard! 3 https://t.co/GO6IeHgtsk

This was a very strange thing: Warne
“I’ve never seen anything like it,” Shane Warne said in a comment on Fox Cricket. Warne said, “Why did the referee give up?” What a strange thing that was. Paul Rifle was the bowler and he saw the ball hit the stumps and he said, ‘You’re out.’
“It’s a very strange thing,” Warne said. Because in this case the ball hit the stumps but the bells did not fall. Sorry I’m still in shock. I’m still not sure what we saw. ‘
