Legendary Australian spinner, Shane Warne joined the part of the cricketing fraternity talking about the dismissal of India captain Virat Kohli on Day 1 of the second Test against New Zealand in Mumbai. Kohli opted for DRS after the on-field umpire gave him LBW and while replays showed that he had got an inside edge, the third umpire ruled that there was not enough evidence to rule that the ball took the edge from the bat before the ball made an impact with the pad.
Tweeting about the same, “This is simply – not out !!!!! We often discuss technology & its use / accuracy. The main [email protected] the interpretation of the technology. Here’s a perfect example of the ball clearly hitting the edge of the bat first.”

TV umpire Virender Sharma took his time to decide to stay with the on-field umpire’s decision as the evidence he had was inconclusive. Three reds appeared on the big screen and Virat Kohli had to walk back to the pavilion. He had a brief chat with the on-field umpires before walking off in frustration.
Kohli was seen discussing the decision with head coach Dravid after he went in the dressing room as Patel rocked India with two wickets in the over. They also lost a review because of Kohli’s unsuccessful referral.
Ajaz has got all of the 10 wickets that India has lost and he became the third bowler in the history of the game to do so. He is the first New Zealand spinner to take seven wickets against India in a Test inning.
Former Indian cricketer Pragyan Ojha has offered his cheeky opinion on the matter. He tweeted, “Virender Sharma bhool gaye ki duniya main sirf ek Virender Sehwag Who’s boldness we love!.”
