But after reviewing evidence from all available technological aids, third umpire Tony Hill felt unable to reprieve the young Yorkshireman.

Carberry said of the outcome: “We were bitterly disappointed by that. We are of the opinion he didn’t hit it — hence why he reviewed it.

“It was a disappointing and key dismissal for us. He obviously felt he didn’t hit the ball. It’s one of those things we have to swallow, I’m afraid.”
