Twitter Hits Out At Virat Kohli For Taking Wrong DRS During India Vs New Zealand 2nd Test

The Indian cricket team is going through a difficult phase as the manner in which it is playing, there are pretty good chances that it will lose the two-test match series to New Zealand as the hosts are already leading by 1-0 and in the second match also, the Indians have gotten out for a meager score of 242 in their first innings.

The 2nd test match is being played at Hagley Oval and New Zealand invited the visitors to bat after winning the toss. India didn’t get a good start as Mayank Agarwal departed early at the personal score of 7; however, Prithvi Shaw and Cheteshwar Pujara stabilized the innings. When the situation seemed to be getting better, Prithvi got out at 54 and Indian skipper Virat Kohli came on the pitch.

Virat Kohli has not been in a good form during this New Zealand tour; though as per him, he is in a good phase but his scores are not matching with his words. He once again got out early after scoring 3 runs but it was his decision to take DRS which irritated the Indian cricket fans.

Virat was adjudged LBW out on the bowling of Tim Southee and it was such a clear LBW that Tim didn’t even look at the umpire before starting to celebrate his wicket. Even with naked eye, it was pretty clear that the ball would have gone at the middle stump and taking DRS for this decision was certainly not needed. The Indian fans were certainly not happy with the attitude of the Indian skipper as he wasted a review while 7 wickets were still remaining.

Here are some tweets in which the Indian fans expressed their annoyance:

Before losing the first test match, team India also lost the ODI series to Black Caps by 3-0; nevertheless, the Indians managed to whitewash the 5-match T20I series. Winning this test match is quite important for the Indian team as it will also affect the points tally of ICC World Test Championship.

What is your take on Virat Kohli’s decision of taking DRS?
