West Indies posted a good total of 311/6 in their quota of 50 overs owing to a gritty century from Shai Hope and a fifty from Pooran. Coming back to the dismissal of Sanju Samson, the incident took place in the 39th over of India’s chase.

Samson had clipped the ball to short fine leg and Deepak Hooda ran through early, Samson was late to take off. The ball went straight to the fielder, which meant not much time was lost before the throw.

Romario Shepherd was at the bowler’s end and he was side-on to the left of the stumps on one knee, but the ball went off the shin to the stumps. The umpire wasn’t sure how the bails were dislodged as the ball hit the stumps or if Shepherd’s bent right shin made contact is the question. The ball was parried and made direct contact, so Sanju Samson had to make his way back to the pavilion.
