Indian cricket team skipper Rohit Sharma is famous for his one-liners and his quip just before taking a DRS review on Day 3 of the fourth Test match against England in Ranchi on Sunday has gone viral. During the 30th over of England’s second innings, a delivery from Ravindra Jadeja crashed into Ben Stokes‘ pads but the umpire was not convinced by the LBW appeal. Jadeja was completely convinced that the ball was hitting the stumps but wicket-keeper Dhruv Jurel believed that it was drifting down the leg stump. Rohit was convinced by the discussion and with seconds to go for the review, he urged the players to ‘use their brain’.

Kuch seconds baaki hain, sab log dimaag lagao (Only a few seconds left, put your heads together),” he was heard saying on the stump mic.

He finally went for the review but it turned out to be unsuccessful.

The commentators were left in splits by Rohit’s comment with veteran cricketer Dinesh Karthik saying –  “We now know how DRS conversations carry out,”

India fought back with wickets at regular intervals as England’s lead surged to 166 runs at tea on the third day of their ongoing fourth Test on Sunday.

Ravichandran Ashwin (3/48) took three wickets in quick succession to peg England back but a fine knock of 60 (91 balls, 7 fours) from opener Zak Crawley led the charge for the visitors, who have an upper hand in the contest.

England lost opener Ben Duckett (15), Ollie Pope (1), Joe Root (11) and skipper Ben Stokes (4) within the session’s play to reach 120/5 at tea.

Kuldeep Yadav (2/10) also chipped in with a couple of wickets while Ravindra Jadeja was tad unlucky with a few decisions not going his way.

Earlier in the day, India were bowled out for 307 in their first innings with Dhruv Jurel narrowly missing out on his maiden century, falling for 90 from 149 balls with six fours and four sixes.
