India vs Australia, 3rd T20I: Virat Kohli Unhappy After DRS Appeal Is Not Allowed


ISLAMABAD, December 8 (online): Virat Kohli was left frustrated after a review taken by India during the third Twenty20 International against Australia in Sydney was declared “null and void” by the third umpire as the review had been taken by India after replays were shown on the big screen at the Sydney Cricket Ground. The incident happened in the 11th over of the Australian inning when a delivery from T. Natarajan hitMatthew Wade on the pads and India’s half-hearted appeal for leg before was turned down by the on-field umpire. Virat Kohli took a review and the third umpire went through with the process for a while before stopping to declare the review null and void as replays had already been shown on the big screen before India asked for the DRS review.
Replays on TV showed Wade pointing out to the on-field umpire Rod Tucker that replays had been shown on the big screen before Kohli opted for DRS.
Moments later, the voice of the TV umpire was heard on air and he too pointed out the same and called off the review.
Kohli was displeased with the move and approached the on-field umpires for a chat.
Play resumed after Kohli and the umpires had an animated discussion.
