In the second over of the World Cup 2019 match between India and Australia at the Oval the Indians thought they had dangerman David Warner. Jasprit Bumrah's first ball in the match took an inside edge off the left-hander and snuck under his foot and rolled on to hit the stumps. However, the bowling side was taken by surprise as the bails were not dislodged from the grooves.

It could have been a terrific start for India after setting the defending champion a target of 353. This is the second instance in the World Cup 2019 where the bails have not been disturbed despite the ball hitting the stumps quite firmly.

 

This was reminiscent of similar instances in the Indian Premier League (IPL). There were three such occasions of bails not coming off, leaving the fielding side groaning and the lucky batsman grinning.
