WATCH: Pakistan review for LBW whilst the ball hits only the bat

Pakistan became the subject of mockery when they reviewed the umpire's decision in anticipation of getting an LBW for Kagiso Rabada although the ball came straight off the bat. However, the Pakistani side is in full control of the game as they restricted the Proteas to a modest 219.

Junaid Khan was brought on to bowl the 43rd over and clean things up for the Pakistani side and the left-arm pacer did what he was supposed to do when he scalped the wicket of the dangerous and set Chris Morris. Junaid looked on cloud nine after picking his wicket and his overjoyed state was the reason Pakistan ended up going upstairs. 

On the last delivery of the over, Junaid bowled a full-length delivery that forced Kagiso Rabada to bring his bat and pad close. The ball looked to have been sliced by the toe end of the bat which was near Rabada's toe. However, Junaid Khan was confident that he had caught the South African plumb in front of the stumps and signalled skipper Sarfraz Ahmed to go for the review.

Rabada was seen smirking at Pakistan's decision as the Protean paceman very well knew that he had easily defended the brilliant delivery. Replays showed the ball clearly coming off the bat and nowhere near the toes which made Pakistan go into the list of teams that have been known for taking the worst reviews.
