The incident took place in the 82nd over of England's second innings batting when Pope was looking to run after hitting the ball through leg byes. However, Bumrah moved to the right a bit and allegedly tried shoulder-barge England batter, seemingly to interrupt his running between the wickets.

The duo formed 80-run partnership before Ravichandran Ashwin could better of Hartley for 34 at 419/8. Then, England lost another quick wicket in Mark Wood at 420/9.
