It has never been an easy job for captains to accurate DRS calls as they have to rely on the other fielders. However, India’s stand-in skipper, KL Rahul predicted the inside edge correctly on an LBW appeal against Bangladesh but it all went in vain as a fielder convinced him to go for the review.  After taking a sizeable lead of 87 runs in the first innings, India left Bangladesh reeling at 70/4 on day 3 at one point in time.

Zakir Hasan was the only fighter for the host against the discipline Indian bowlers as he scored fifty but was dismissed at 51 later in the day. Apart from bowling very well, the Indian team has been pretty accurate around the DRS calls throughout the game and KL Rahul also did one such spot-on judgment. However, it all went in vain as one of the fielders convinced him to go for the review, which eventually turned out to be a wrong decision.

Jaydev Unadkat was bowling the 37th over of the innings and he bowled a delivery that jagged back into Zakir Hasan. The ball struck the pads of the batter and there was a loud appeal from the Indian players. Jaydev Unadkat and Rishabh Pant showed huge excitement but the umpire had no intention of giving it out. KL Rahul stepped in and he was telling the teammates that there was a clear inside edge.

However, there was a twist in the tale as the bowled convinced KL Rahul to take the DRS. The skipper eventually obliged and went for the review but the slow-motion replay clearly showed a big spike on UltraEdge. The review proved Rahul’s judgment to be correct. He was disappointed after the visitors lost the review and expressed his displeasure immediately.
