WATCH : When James Anderson appealed for Murali Vijay obstructing the field

On the 2nd day of the 3rd Test between India and England played at Mohali, Indian opening batsman Murali Vijay survived a scare early in his innings as there was an appeal for obstructing the field by English pacer James Anderson against him.

It all happened in the final ball of the third over when Vijay defended a length ball from Anderson back to the bowler. Vijay after defending the ball back was standing outside of his crease when Anderson threw the ball towards the stumps and it hit Vijay’s pads instead.

Anderson appealed for Vijay obstructing the field, the umpires had a little conversation among themselves and then decided to continue the play instead of going to the third umpire for the TV review.
