- Tourists fall to 106-run loss in second Test against India
- ‘I think the technology has got it wrong on this occasion’
Ben Stokes was magnanimous after the 106-run defeat by India, accepting 1-1 after two Tests was fair and insisting a virus in the England camp was not to blame. But the tourists’ captain did have one query: a belief that the Hawk-Eye was “wrong” for Zak Crawley’s pivotal dismissal.
Chasing a record 399, England were all but out of the contest when two quick wickets fell on the stroke of lunch to leave them six down, still 205 runs from the target. Among these was Crawley, lbw to Kuldeep Yadav via the decision review system, having top-scored with a crisp 73 in his side’s eventual 292 all out.
