New Delhi: Mohali Test was another great outing for India's prime spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who three wickets in the 2nd session, including that of Alastair Cook.

The off-spinner als bagged a half-century for India before continuing his good performance with the ball.

The same over in which Ashwin removed Alastair Cook, there was a constant argument going on between Ashwin, Joe Root and the umpire standing at bowler's end.

The Tamil Nadu man was annoyed with Root's positioning as a non-striker and also complained the umpire regarding the same on a few occasions.

As per ICC rules, “The non-striker, when standing at the bowler’s end, should be positioned on the opposite side of the wicket to that from which the ball is being delivered, unless a request to do otherwise is granted by the umpire.” - Law 29.3.

It was nice to see Ashwin channeling his frustration in the right manner and getting Cook out clean bowled with a terrific delivery.
