Was Bishoo's no-ball actually a no-ball? Mikey says no...

Moeen Ali smacked a scintillating 84 to wrestle control for England in the second Test - but should he have been dismissed on 32?
The left-hander snicked Windies leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo behind but the bowler was promptly called for a no-ball and Ali handed a reprieve.
Bishoo's heel was in the air when the ball of his foot landed, but a part of it appeared to be behind the line, so was he unfortunate?
Sky Sports' Mikey Holding feels he was, as he explained in a pre-play chat on no-balls with former umpire David Lloyd and Ian Ward at Headingley.
"The key fact is when the foot first touches the ground," said the former West Indies seamer. "There has to be something behind the line, whether the foot is raised or touching the ground.
"For anything as close as that, I would prefer the umpires let it go and then, if a wicket falls, [the third umpire] can look at it."
Windies quick Shannon Gabriel bowled some big no-balls in Leeds, many of them missed by on-field umpires Sundaram Ravi and Chris Gaffaney.
"The umpires may have missed it because of the bowler's action but if they are not looking for it, it is just laziness."
