During the second test at Mumbai, captain Kohli seems to have lost his cool after the on-field umpire makes a poor decision.
The India-New Zealand test has seen a lot of drama happening so far. Be it Ajaz Patel’s 10 wicket haul in an innings or the Kiwis being bowled out for 62. However, the match officials have been piss poor in both the tests. The umpires were often seen making wrong calls. The biggest one of them all was Virat Kohli’s LBW dismissal in the first innings. The Kanpur test witnessed a lot of errors made by the umpires.
A similar incident took place in the 16th over of New Zealand’s 2nd innings. Left arm spinner Axar Patel bowled a skiddy delivery which deceived both the batsmen Ross Taylor and the wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha. However, the umpires thought that the ball had taken an inside edge of the bat and he gave runs for the batsmen instead of byes. The ball went to the boundary for a four.
The decision left skipper Virat Kohli amused as he could not believe that the umpire gave runs for the batter.
Kohli was heard saying something to the umpire which was caught by the stump mic.
“Ye kya karte hain yaar ye log yaar… Main udhar aajata hu tum idhar aajao,” Kohli said.
Kohli asked the on-field umpire to swap positions with him after making several poor calls during the course of the game. Even bowler Axar Patel was shocked by the umpire’s signal and gave away a cheeky smile.
The video has been going viral on the net and people all over the world are reacting at the poor officiating by the umpires.
Team India have been on the driving seat after managing to put up a target of massive target of 540 in front of the Kiwis. The Kiwis managed to score 140 runs at the cost of five wickets at stumps on Day 3.
