Tim Paine at bat even after being exhausted
Australian batsmen Cameron Green and captain Tim Paine were frozen in 55th place of the game. Green, standing on the shore, asked Tim Paine to take the picture. Tim Paine standing at the non-attacking run to take the run. The ball was in the hands of goalkeeper Rishabh Pant and he hit the ball over the stumps to get out. It was clearly visible in the TV reruns that the pen bat was above the crease. However, the third referee’s decision came in Tim Paine’s best interest and he was not abandoned.

By the rules, if a batter’s bat is over the crease, he is called out, but the third umpire did not give the pen.
Very surprised that Tim Paine survived this exhausted review! I had him on his bike and thought there was no part of his bat behind the line! I should have gone out in my opinion

Shane Warne furious at the wrong decision
There has been a row about this. In fact, former Australian spinner Shane Warne has denied the move and he tweeted about it.
Warne (Shane Warne) said: “I’m surprised the third official didn’t allow Tim Paine to burn out. I think his bat didn’t enter the crease.
