Goofs

Continuity 

After the first day's play, the direction of light-and-shade don't seem to correlate to the time-of-day (may be this is continuity?)

The film although based in the year 1893 shows quite a few British Lieutenants to be clean-shaven. The British Indian Army regulated all commissioned officers to wear whiskers till 1910, so the lieutenants had to wear beards or at least moustaches.

Character error 

SPOILER. Every time British soldiers go past on horseback, the Union flag carried by one of them is always upside down. As an internationally recognized distress signal, it's an unconscious revealing of the result of the cricket match.

Continuity 

When Kachra is batting, the scoreboard in the background shows a score of 314. However, after two more runs have been scored, the close-up of the scoreboard shows the score to be 313.

When Kachra takes his first wicket he hits the OFF Stump. Later in the next scene it shows that he hit the MIDDLE stump and the OFF Stump is not at all moved.

Factual errors 

When they get to the last over, someone says they need 10 runs off 6 balls - but in those days there would have been 4 or 5 balls to an over.

The game of cricket is a test match. Bhuvan's team can't lose the match if the stipulated time is over. The match should end in a draw.

Plot holes 

When the cricket match scene is being shot, and Ismail got out as Tipu was run-out by the bowler, there is actual an omission of 1 ball. In a game of cricket, which is driven till last ball, calculation of 1 ball less is a major plot hole.
