Nevertheless until now, no such growth could be confirmed and Indian staff until now hasn’t lodged an official grievance with match referee Chris Broad.
The incident was recorded within the thirty fifth over of the Indian second innings, bowled by Ollie Robinson.

The footage did not present the face of the gamers. The matter has not escalated and the umpires did not change the ball.
The truth is, when an Indian fan requested Stuart Broad on social media if it was intentional, the injured England seamer replied: “In fact, it wasn’t.”

Broad’s rationalization was if umpires wanted to test the ball after this explicit incident to make sure it hasn’t been fiddled with then after each six hit would warrant a ball test.
