The third and the final T20I that took place between India and Australia caught the attention of many after Indian skipper Virat Kohli was engaged in a heated argument with the on-field umpire.
Team India was almost out of the game but they had a chance to step once in the ground as Nataranjan almost gave Men in Blue a golden chance by trapping in-form Matthew Wade on the crease. Bowling a seaming delivery that got pitched on the middle and leg, Wade tried to flick.
The Men in Blue hurried in taking LBW but the umpire was not interested. There was no countdown shown on the board so the Indian skipper took his time consulting with the fellows before taking the review.
When the review was shown on the screen, the skipper decided to go for a review but it was taken after the replay on the big screen leaving Kohli unhappy with the decision. He got indulged in an argument and the umpire explained to him that one cannot take a review after seeing it on a big screen and the decision shall have been made a bit earlier.
Ind vs Aus 3rd T20I: Kohli engages in a heated argument with the umpire
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
