Sydney: The 30-plus runs scored by Australian keeper-batsman Matthew Wade have been ruled out of the Indian team’s delayed DRS call, and captain Virat Kohli has called the delayed response “unacceptable”.
In the 11th over, Natarajan got into the Wade Pads from the delivery, which was straightened after the pitch. If the umpire ruled it was not out, the Indian team decided to appeal after some deliberation and the umpire signaled to the DRS.
However, Wade immediately objected to the fact that the 15 seconds allotted for the inspection was over for the Indian team and the decision to allow the DRS was canceled.
“That LBW is awkward. We are still debating if the ball is going down the leg side and going for a review but the umpire will do nothing,” Kohli said at a post-match press conference.
“We thought as a management, we can’t make such mistakes (late) at the highest level. It’s really expensive in a major game.”
TV replays show it could be LBW for India and a 12-run win margin, as Wade added 30 to 50 at the time of the incident.
