Team India was trapped in a mistake after a late DRS call from Virat Kohli. The Men in Blues found themselves on the wrong end of the Decision Review System (DRS) call against Kangaroos in the third game of T20Is.
Team India trying to put pressure on the hosts after two big wickets of Aaron Finch and Steve Smith, called for a DRS in a fine delivery but they got deprived of it.
The incident happened in the eleventh over of the first innings. Matthew Wade after completing his half-century tried to gear up the innings but T Natarajan successfully hit the ball in the pads of the wicketkeeper-batsman.
Virat Kohli went for the review but his call was not allowed by the onfield umpire.
However, this time the TV Umpire had started his work but soon realized that the broadcasters had already shown up the replay of the delivery.
Batsmen asked the onfield umpires as if this is the right thing to do after showing up the replay. The TV Umpire soon bailed up and canceled the call for DRS.
The replay showed that the ball was hitting the leg stumps and if it would have been a fair DRS call, Matthew Wade would have to leave the crease.
However, the commentators later clarified that the Indian Skipper, Virat Kohli took more than 15 seconds to call for the DRS due to which it was canceled by the umpires.
Experts Reaction to the Incident:
But the incident took a toll on some of the former cricketers and Pundits and have been constantly talking about it on social media.
Matthew Wade survived that delivery by luck and later smacked Indian Bowlers all over the park and imposed a huge total of 186 runs in 20 overs. Wade amassed 80 runs from 53 balls he faced in the third T20I.
