Although India were on the brink of winning the match, by Dikwella deploying a tactic to deliberately delay the game, it eventually ended in a draw.
Expressing his views, Dikwella said, “It commenced when I hit a six to the Square leg region. There were three fielders in that area. I told the Umpire Nigel Long about it. Then that ball was marked as a no ball. Later Virat Kohli told me not to worry about it and that it was a duty of the umpire. That was when everything started.”
“Kohli knew what I was going to do. It was then that an exchange of words happened with Mohomed Samy. It was rather enjoyable and I feel I won the battle.” He said.
