India continued to dominate England with a solid start on Day 2 with Hitman Rohit Sharma and young batting sensation Shubman Gill making it tough for the opponents in Dharamsala Test. The ‘Men in Blue’ have already crossed the 200 mark with the fall of only one wicket.

The pressure is truly on the guests at the moment. If things go well, India is likely to win the 5th or last match of the series. Meanwhile, a video is going viral where Rohit Sharma made a DRS error despite Sarfaraz Khan’s request.

On the fifth ball of the 26th over, England opener Zak Crawley missed a glance shot off Kuldeep Yadav, and the ball was caught by Sarfaraz after it hit wicketkeeper Dhruv Jurel. Sarfaraz caught it before it could fall on the ground and made a massive appeal.

However, Rohit Sharma was unconvinced even as Sarfaraz was sure about a wicket there. Dhruv Jurel, on the other hand, also had a second thought about the wicket, leading to Rohit Sharma turning down the request for a DRS.
To everyone’s surprise, the replays and UltraEdge confirmed that Sarfaraz was indeed right and England opener Crawley had edged the ball. 

With this, India lost a big opportunity to dismiss Crawley. After the replays, Sarfaraz maintained his cool while Rohit Sharma laughed in return.

Opting to bat first, England went down for 218 in the first innings, while India was leading from the front. Rohit Sharma is all set to hit another century with Shubman Gill by his side.
