Good news for Indian fans as the Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar was seen in the nets on Monday. His place in the third ODI isn't completely sure as he will undergo a fitness test after a back niggle kept him out of the ODI series so far before the final ODI against England at Headingley.
"He’s in with a chance to play. He’ll have to go through some sort of a fitness test before we can confirm his availability for the game," said India's assistant coach Sanjay Bangar.
The official Twitter account of BCCI shared a clip of Bhuvneshwar practicing in the nets. However, fans spotted that the pacer overstepped while bowling. It wasn't just an ordinary no-ball, the front foot looked way outside the popping crease.
The Twitterati started roasting the 28-year-old for the delivery. Here is what they wrote:

Important thing to note is he is overstepping.. That's why our bowlers bowl no balls in match situations.— tarun sharma (@tarun_sharma_82) July 16, 2018

That's a net practice session and they don't mind about no balls while practising about line and length. People will know this if they have ever been to nets.— Nandivardhan (@nandivardhan917) July 17, 2018
I don't know how you people will react if you see when ajinkya rahane practicing with six stumps rather than three.
