India’s pace bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar during the third and last One Day International on Friday tried to get better of Australian ODI skipper Aaron Finch by bowling from behind the umpire at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG),

Finch, who was twice dismissed by Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the ongoing three-match ODI series, was batting way out of his crease on Bhuvi’s bowling. So Bhuvneshwar decided to bowl him from way behind the crease, so much that the Indian pacer’s back leg was behind the umpire.

After seeing Bhuvi bowling from behind the umpire, Finch moved away from the wickets and the umpire had to call it a no-ball. Following the umpire’s call, Indian players, especially Bhuvneshwar, were left perplexed.

In the replay shown on TV screens, just before Bhuvneshwar bowled that delivery, former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni was seen having a word with him.

However, Bhuvi and Dhoni’s mind game worked on Finch as Bhuvneshwar got the prized wicket of the Aussie skipper on the next delivery for an LBW. uploaded the video of both the balls on social media and their post read: “This one was called a dead ball… #AUSvIND”

” This one was called lbw… #AUSvIND,” the next Tweet read.


Earlier in the day, Indian skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to bowl in the third and final clash of the series. The Oz team made two changes with leg-spinner Adam Zampa coming in for Nathan Lyon and speedster Billy Stanlake replacing Jason Behrendorff.

Meanwhile, Team India also made three changes to their playing XI with Mohammed Siraj making way for ODI debutant Vijay Shankar, Yuzvendra Chahal replacing Kuldeep Yadav and all-rounder Kedar Jadhav for Ambati Rayudu.
