Khawaja to Axar, out Lbw! We have a review right away; Pujara, the stand-in, requests it because Rohit hasn’t arrived. A careless prod, and Khawaja completely missed it. The same is confirmed by Ono UltraEdge. Ball tracking now Khawaja is out after waiting for it and seeing three reds, hitting a leg-stump. The break has affected Khawaja’s concentration – was a straight ball and he was looking to tuck it to the on-side, this is a shot which has given him plenty of runs, but stunningly, he misses this one and is struck right in front, the Ahmedabad crowd find their voice as they see the original call being reversed.
