In a rather bizarre incident, Ravichandran Ashwin went for a review after being bowled off an Ajaz Patel delivery on Day 2 of the second India-New Zealand Test in Mumbai. Ashwin was comprehensively beaten by a peach from Patel, and went for a review, thinking he was given out caught-behind.

Ajaz Patel continued his brilliance on Day 2 of the second India-New Zealand Test in Mumbai, sending back Wriddhiman Saha and Ravichandran Ashwin off successive balls within the first 10 minutes of play. While Saha was trapped leg-before on missing the cut on one that straightened, Ashwin was castled by the one turning away.

The second dismissal was quite an event in itself. It was a classic spinner’s dismissal, as the ball drifted in and spun sharply on pitching, and the batsman missed it while pressing forward, only for the ball to flick the pad and hit the top of off. So shell-shocked was Ashwin, that he’d thought the fielding side was celebrating a caught-behind dismissal, and he reviewed the call instantly knowing that he hadn't hit it, only to realise that he’d been bowled.

It was Patel's sixth wicket of the innings. India were 246/6 at the time of writing, with Mayank Agarwal (130*) and Axar Patel (14*) at the crease.

Ridiculous!

Wait, what?

That was clean bowled!

Hilarious! 

Shell-shocked!

This is insane!

HAHA!🤣🤣 

This ain't funny!

How can he review a bowled??

Yes! He did.
