- Virat Kohli reacted sharply after the match to the umpires’ mistake
- The review was taken by the Indian team for the decision in favor of Matthew Wade
Virat Kohli’s statement has come on the review of the decision in favor of Matthew Wade. Virat Kohli accused the match officials of saying that such mistakes should not be done on a large scale. This can be expensive. Virat Kohli also explained why the umpire had not considered his review request.
Virat Kohli said that the review was quite strange. We were talking within fifteen seconds of whether the ball was in the stumps or not. During this, the replays were shown on the screen and we were denied a review.
Virat Kohli appears angry
Virat Kohli said that when we went to take the review, the umpire said that nothing can happen now. Such mistakes should not be made at a high level. It can suffer in important matches.
The incident occurred during the eleventh over of Australian batting. At that time Matthew Wade was batting and T Natarajan was bowling. Wade attempted to flick a full-length ball but it went off his pad. KL Rahul and T Natarajan did not think of reviewing the decision. Virat Kohli was standing in the deep. He came and asked for a review after the discussion. The umpire refused to accept it. He argued that replays have come on screen. It is not seen that Virat has taken this DRS within fifteen seconds time. However, this match was the fault of the officials.
Australia defeated India by 12 runs in the third T20 match. However, the Indian team won this series. Hardik Pandya was voted Man of the Series.
Right decision made. Can’t have the review after the replays are on the big screen. But was it up earlier than it should have been??? Or was it played only after 15 seconds had lapsed?? #Wade #Natarajan #AusvInd
