Shubman Gill was dismissed cheaply by England for the second time in the Test match at Chennai. The Indian opener looked in a positive frame of mind in his second knock before he failed to read an arm ball by Jack Leach. Gill was anticipating the ball to turn but it went straight on and struck his pad right in front.

After umpire adjudged Gill out he had a polite inquiry with Rohit Sharma and went for DRS at the lost moment. The DRS showed that the ball was crashing into the middle and leg stump and it was the right decision made by the umpires. Gill was upset with himself as he could have defended the delivery with a lot more intent but he eventually missed a straight ball from Leach.
