Gaikwad inning comes to an end
Gaikwad smacked it over long-on to finally got a much needed big shot. Joseph missed out on the yorker, full toss and Gaikwad tried to hammered it over long-on. However, he ended up getting caught over there with Gill diving forward. Umpire gone upstairs to check the height. It looked like the ball was too high but replays showed that it was below waist. An extraordinary innings came to an end but Alzarri Joseph is never easy to hit in the death overs.
