Virat Kohli was treated roughly in the first game of the second test in Mumbai new Zealand, Was given LBW by the third referee in a controversial way.
The incident occurred in the last match of the 30th inning of the Indian round. New Zealand left arm spinner Ajaz Patel got a ball after the pitch, straightened the ball into Kolly, and called for LBW because the great batsman put the bat and the mat on the front foot and put the bat Put aside the cushion.
The referee Anil Chaudhary raised his finger, believing that the ball hit the mat before it made contact with the bat. But this was the dramatic start, as the replay showed that the ball hit the inner edge before the front pad.
Why did the third referee declare Virat Kohli out?
This is because, according to him, the evidence provided by the playback and technology is not sufficient to arrive at a clear answer whether the ball hit the bat first. Since Virat Kohli made a mistake by crossing the angle of the ball, placing his bat sideways and opening his face, the third referee Virender Sharma became more difficult.
However, a closer examination proved that Chowdhury and Sharma were both wrong, as the ball was seen drawing a path directly to the inner edge without any initial contact with the mat.

Well, don’t mind the decision on the court, but in a frame with no over-edge, there is a clear shadow of the ball at the moment the ball hits the bat, which indicates that the bat is in front.But the frame with the super edge does not get it, it is always a further frame

In my opinion, this is the number one bat. I understand the “hard evidence” part. But I think this is an example where common sense should prevail. But as they said, common sense is not that common. Feel Virat Kohli. #Unlucky #INDvNZ

When Kohli was reviewed and showed us the replay, everyone was relieved, but the referee chose to retract it and dig it. The person who couldn’t overcome that decision. Obviously hit the ball first!

This was a bad decision made by the referee on the court, but the decision of the third referee was a good one.
But I hope my timeline will be full of Indian fans complaining about the third referee.
There is no evidence to overturn, but there is too much suspicion on the court.#INDvNZ

In the past year or two, Indian referees have not been good. This is a very convincing conclusion. Nitin Menon may be an exception, but his recent games have also been terrible. Need to see how good he is in the long run.

Kohli’s untimely dismissal meant India went from 80-0 to 80/3 in a small collapse, and saw Shubman Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara in the opener being knocked back by Ajaz’s left-arm spinning bowling ball.
