IND vs AUS 2nd Test: Virat Kohli’s dismissed by Australian Matthew Kuhnemann leaves fans enraged, here is why

Indian Cricket team’s former skipper Virat Kohli’s spell came to an end against Aussie’s debutant Matthew Kuhnemann on Day 2 of the 2nd test in Delhi’s Kotla. Virat’s dismissal by the LBW led the fans to take to Twitter to share their thoughts on the case.

On Saturday, batting at 44 runs and aiming to achieve a half-century, Virat Kohli was picked off by Australia’s debutante Matthew Kuhnemann in the 50th over. Kohnemann’s arm bowling came in with speed and Kohli went for defense which led to the ball getting squeezed between his bat and the pad.

After the Aussies appealed for an LBW, umpire Nitin Monnon came out and gave a decision that was not favorable to the Indian side as the Indian Cricket phenom was ruled out with an LBW.

However, Kohli’s dismissal in the UtlraEdge replay showed that it wasn’t an LBW as there was a spike when the ball was squeezed between the bat and the pad, implying that the ball had struck the bat first and dropping to the ground. However, as the decision of the empire is final, the Aussies felt a little light in the boots knowing that one of the threats against them has been dismissed.

After the umpire ruled Kohli out of the game following his decision, Indian Cricket fans took to Twitter to share their takes on the decision by the umpire.

Twitter reactions

Former Indian Cricketer Wasim Jaffer also shared the shot of Virat’s Ultra Edge display where the UltraEdge review shows a spike when the ball hit the bat and then the pad. Jaffer in his Tweet wrote and said that that wasn’t out for him and further said too much doubt in there.

One user shared the footage of Virat Kohli watching the replay review of his own dismissal where the Indian Cricketer can be seen in a fuming state. The user also highlighted that it looks like Virat looked angry after being given a dismissal by the third umpire.

One user also sided with the cricketer and wrote that people will call this as another failure of Virat Kohli but they will never know how much control he had today and how he got out.
The user further wrote and said that the benefit of the doubt should go to the batsman and further slammed the umpires for ignoring basic rules.

Shubman Gill didn’t deserve to be India T20I captain: Amit Mishra

World Cup 2023: Shubman Gill hospitalized at Chennai’s Kaveri hospital due to low platelet count

Indian leg spinner Amit Mishra has criticised the decision to make Shubman Gill the captain of India’s T20 team.

In a podcast, Mishra said Gill has no idea of what it means to be a captain and is ignorant of the importance of the captain’s role. Mishra said he didn’t feel Gill could do justice to the responsibility of being a captain in the recently concluded T20I series against Zimbabwe.

He suggested Ruturaj Gaikwad was a better option. He said there is a sense that Gaikwad has been ignored by the BCCI and national selectors to support Gill. Even Gaikwad was overlooked as a backup player for the T20 World Cup 2024 and then for India’s captaincy in Zimbabwe.

Mishra didn’t hesitate in saying he wouldn’t have appointed Gill captain for the Zimbabwe series. He admitted the decision had surprised him.

Mishra clarified that he is not someone who hates Gill but believed that if someone was doing well that person deserved a chance and respect, like Gaikwad.

During the IPL, Mishra said Gaikwad as captain of Chennai Super Kings had scored vital runs in many different situations. He has the hallmark of a complete player and needs to be rewarded in ODIs and Tests as well.

Most important thing is that he brings calm to the team and doesn’t make such risky shots, Mishra said in his evaluation of the performances of Gill and Gaikwad in IPL matches.

Mishra said the other captaincy options were Sanju Samson and Rishabh Pant. He said these three, including Gaikwad, are players who can lead India in T20Is.

The leggie also spoke on several other controversial topics including the row involving Sanjeev Goenka and KL Rahul during the IPL and the fraught dynamics between Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir.

A few days after India’s World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev’s appeal, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Secretay Jay Shah has instructed the cricket board to release Rs 1 crore with immediate effect to provide financial assistance to India’s veteran cricketer Anshuman Gaekwad, who is battling blood cancer.

According to BCCI Apex Council, Shah has also spoken to Gaekwad’s family and took stock of the situation and provided assistance.

In the statement, the Council has stated that the board stands by Gaekwad’s family in this hour of crisis and will do whatever is essential for Gaekwad’s quick recovery. The BCCI will continue to monitor Gaekwad’s progress and is confident that he will come out of this phase strongly, the BCCI Apex Council further said.

Earlier, speaking to a Sports channel, Kapil said that he had written to BCCI requesting to lend financial support to Gaekwad, who is battling blood cancer alone and said he is ready to donate his pension to help him.

He further said that his former teammates such as Mohinder Amarnath, Sunil Gavaskar, Sandeep Patil, Dilip Vengsarkar, Madan Lal, Ravi Shastri and Kirti Azad have been generating funds to help Gaikwad, who has been undergoing treatment for the past year at King’s College Hospital in London.

Kapil showed his confidence in the BCCI going to take a look into the matter and extend its help to support the former India head coach Gaekwad financially. Kapil said he was saddened and depressed because he had played alongside Gaekwad and couldn’t bear to see him in this situation. No one should suffer, he added.

The cricket legend said he knows the Board will take care of him and not compel anyone. Any help for Anshu should come from the heart. Kapil further said that Anshu took blows to his face and chest when standing up to some of the ferocious fast bowlers. “Now is the time for us to stand up for him. I am sure our cricket fans will not fail him. They should pray for his recovery,” Kapil added.

Cricketer Kapil Dev has written to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) requesting to lend financial support to his former India teammate Anshuman Gaekwad battling blood cancer alone and said he is ready to donate his pension to help him.

India’s World Cup-winning captain also highlighted the lack of a system and said it is great to see this generation of players make good money. It is good to see the support staff members also being paid well. He further said that, during his time, the Board did not have the money. Today, it has and should take care of the senior players from the past. But where they send their contributions, he wondered.

Kapil said if a Trust is formed, they can put their money there. He believed that BCCI should make a system where they look after the players, former and present. He said players are ready to contribute by donating our pension amount if the family allow them to.
