However, during the second over of the Indian innings, an incident took place that left the whole England side, including Ben Stokes, disappointed. Gill caught a low edge off Broad's delivery carrying the ball to the second slip (Ben Stokes). 

Umpires referred the decision to the TV umpire after giving the soft signal, out. However, the decision was overturned as it was found that a bit of the ball was touching the ground. The English side were visibly disappointed after the decision.
