The story as it happened -
The Melbourne derby was taking place at the famed MCG Ground. Adam Zampa the Melbourne stars captain was bowling when he saw Tom Rogers venture out of the crease. Zampa was quick to flip out the bails and effect the mankad. The crowd was quick to boo Zampa as the third umpire came into play.

Third umpire saves Tom Rogers -
With all the confusion around, the decision went up to the third umpire. The batter got a lease of life after he was deemed not out because as per the umpire, the bowler Adam Zampa had completed his action. Hence the appeal for a run out stood null and void.
