Keshav Maharaj fell down moaning in pain
In the last over of the first session, Maharaj trapped Meares in front of the stumps and got him out lbw. Although the umpire declared not out, Maharaj challenged the umpire’s call. Maharaj was about to celebrate when the screen showed the verdict in his favor when he twisted his ankle and fell down writhing in pain.
