It has been a clear since Australia’s Test tour to India earlier in March this year that Indian skipper Virat Kohli does not share a very good rapport with his Australian counterpart Steve Smith.
Now once again, it seems that Virat was seen taking a dig at Smith’s failed DRS call in the first ODI played at Chepauk. The incident took place in the 45th over of the Indian innings when Marcus Stoinis bowled a length delivery to Bhuvneshwar Kumar. The ball was bowled on the off-stump region. Bhuvi tried to dab it down to third man for a single but the ball was too close to cut it took an inside edge off the bat and then got deflected onto the pads.
The Australian team was convinced that the ball had hit the pad first. The on-field umpire gave it as not out but Smith took no time to go upstairs for a review. The replays clearly suggested that it was bat first and hence the on-field decision stayed.
The DRS referral was wasted by Smith and soon after that, the cameras went in zooming in on Virat in the Indian dressing room where he was seen shaking his body to mock the Aussies for their failed DRS call.
Here’s the video of the incident:
