Yuzvendra Chahal was bowling in this over and on the 4th bowl of this over Mark Chapman tried to play a sweep shot but that ball hits him and the Indian players appealed. The umpire didn’t give him out but they were willing to take the review without taking the advice of Hardik which Hardik said to them that ” I am the captain of this team.”
