Indian veteran Ravichandran Ashwin has been accused of an unsportsmanlike act after trying to claim a catch that hit the ground against Pakistan.
After a strong start India looked to have claimed another wicket when Shan Masood top-edged a pull shot off the bowling of Mohammed Shami and it flew to fine leg.
