Team India and its love-hate story with the Decision Review System (DRS) has been the talk of the town more often than not ever since MS Dhoni’s departure from the team. Virat Kohli has not been successful with his reviews and team India has faced constant fire for not being able to take the reviews correctly.

On Tuesday, another such incident happened when the India National Cricket Team took on Australia in the third T20I of the series as team India was once again involved in a massive goof up on the Decision Review System (DRS).

Team India Involved In Another DRS Goof Up

The Indian team won the toss in the third T20I and decided to field first. The Men in Blue had a solid start as they clinched Aaron Finch’s wicket early in the powerplay. However, Steve Smith and Matthew Wade were involved in a decent partnership as they carried Australia forward.

Steve Smith departed in the 10th over of the game as Washington Sundar clinched his second wicket of the day. However, the major threat posed by Australia was from Wade as he had smashed a half-century and as T Natarajan bowled the 11th over, team India had a chance to take Wade in their pocket.

On the fourth ball of the 11th over, Natarajan plumbed Wade right in front of the wicket but team India did not take a DRS call on time and later they were denied the DRS as they had already looked to the replay on the big screen and as per the protocols, a DRS call is invalid after the replay has been shown on the big screen.

Captain Virat Kohli didn’t seem too pleased with the umpires’ decision and seemed to be arguing with the on-field umpires. The Men in Blue will be trying to clinch Australia’s wickets and keep them to a low score as Australia were cruising at 117-2 in the 14th over when this report was published.
