Virat Kohli’s Test comeback turned very pale when he had to fall victim to the wrong decision of the third umpire in the first innings of the Mumbai Test match. Virat Kohli, the regular captain of the Indian Test team, made a comeback through the Mumbai Test after a few days of rest on the field and cricket fans were hoping that they would get to see a big innings with his bat, but it did not happen. Virat Kohli was the victim of a wrong decision against New Zealand and faced 5 balls and was forced to return to the pavilion without opening the account.
Third umpire gives wrong out to Virat Kohli:
Virat Kohli was dismissed for zero on the last ball of the 30th over of the first innings of the Mumbai Test match. Kiwi spinner Ejaz Patel was bowling this over. This ball of Ajaz Patel took the edge of Virat Kohli’s bat and hit his left foot. After this an appeal was made against him and the field umpire present in front declared him out. After this Virat Kohli challenged this decision of the field umpire and took DRS.
Third umpire Virender Sharma looked at it from many angles and finally he said that I have no concrete evidence to reverse the decision of the field umpire and declared Kohli out. At the same time, it was clearly visible in the ultra edge that the ball first hit the bat and then hit the pad. Although it happened almost simultaneously, the decision of the third umpire did not go in favor of Kohli and he had to go to the pavilion. Virat Kohli looked angry after this decision and came back, but many former cricketers also raised questions on this decision of the third umpire. At the same time, Ejaz Patel was successful in giving a big blow to Team India by dismissing Pujara on the second ball of the 30th over of the first innings while Kohli was dismissed for zero on the last ball.
