India locked horns with South Africa in the series decider of the three-match series against South Africa at the Arun Jaitley stadium in Delhi. In the first innings, the Indian all-arounder, Washington Sundar produced an eye-catching dismissal with a wonderful delivery to get rid of David Miller as it left both the batsman and umpires confused as to what exactly had occurred.

Washington Sundar bowled a phenomenal spell

The Indian team is the strong favorite to win the game against South Africa as the hosts bundled out the visitors for a meager score of 99 runs. While Mohammed Siraj produced a couple of brilliant short balls to get crucial breakthroughs, it was Washington Sundar that stole the limelight by scalping perhaps the two greatest threats to the Men in Blue.

The first wicket came in the third over itself after Washington Sundar was handed the new ball, deceiving Quinton de Kock with pace and bounce to have him caught at point. However, it was the dismissal of an in-form David Miller that really made for spectacular viewing and even had the umpires confused about the events that occurred.

Bowling the 19th over, Washington Sundar bowled a ball around a good length that skidded on. Miller stayed in his crease and was unable to decide whether to go on the front foot or back foot. He eventually took a step back but by then was cramped for space as the ball glanced at the top of his off stump. However, the bail took its own sweet time to dislodge from the wicket and only briefly lit up in red.

David Miller seemed unsure as to what had happened considering the unusual manner in which the ball impacted the stumps and asked the umpires for confirmation of the same. After a discussion between the two on-field umpires, the decision was referred upstairs and after a few replays, the TV umpire confirmed that it was indeed a legal dismissal and Miller had to return to the dugout. 

Here is the video of the dismissal:

The incident soon had the internet talking about it all over social media:
