Calling webhook "sidecar-injector.istio.io" failed. Post failed with i/o timeout

Hi,

I m new to istio, trying to learn how to deploy applications with istio-sidecar. Tried the following steps to install the istio and the sample application(bookinfo) over it

Istio is installed succesfully.

[root@k8s-master istio-1.4.5]# kubectl get pods -n istio-system

I tried the following commands to install bookinfo application.

kubectl label namespace default istio-injection=enabled
kubectl apply -f samples/bookinfo/platform/kube/bookinfo.yaml

But the pods are not coming up. Error can be seen below.

kubectl describe rs productpage-v1-596598f447

Warning FailedCreate 9m49s replicaset-controller Error creating: Internal error occurred: failed calling webhook “sidecar-injector.istio.io”: Post https://istio-sidecar-injector.istio-system.svc:443/inject?timeout=30s: context deadline exceeded (Client.Timeout exceeded while awaiting headers)

Kindly let me know how to resolve this.
Following are the versions of kubernetes and istio
[root@k8s-master istio-1.4.5]# kubectl version
