This is how Akshar Patel hunted Khwaja
Akshar Patel brought the 147th over for Team India. He bowled the very first ball of this over in the line of stumps, on which Khawaja got caught on all fours and the ball went straight to the pad. Although the umpire did not give out, but when Cheteshwar Pujara took DRS, the decision went in favor of the bowler. Pujara demanded DRS because at that time Rohit Sharma was in the stands outside the ground. In this way Khawaja was out and returned to the pavilion.
