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.

Push for red-ball cricket: BCCI to hike Test match fee

The BCCI currently pays INR 15 lakh for a Test, INR 6 lakh for an ODI, and INR 3 lakh for a T20I.

The Board of Control For Cricket in India (BCCI) intends to increase the payments for Test matches as a result of players’ increasing preference for playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) over the longest format of the game, according to a report.

The fee structure has been revised by the cricket board in response to Ishan Kishan’s withdrawal from domestic cricket. The Indian wicketkeeper batter has been working with the Pandya brothers in Barodra, Gujarat, ahead of the IPL, which is scheduled to begin later this month, despite the management’s requests for him to play domestic cricket.

According to a source, BCCI is currently deciding how much more money will be given to a player who participates in every Test series for the whole of the season.

For instance, in addition to the yearly retainer contract, an individual should receive additional benefits if they participate in every Test series over a given year. This is to guarantee that more players show up for red-ball cricket. According to a source, this would be an additional perk of playing Test cricket.

The BCCI currently pays INR 15 lakh for a Test, INR 6 lakh for an ODI, and INR 3 lakh for a T20I.

According to a report, if the new salary structure is approved, it will be implemented after the current IPL season.

However, Rohit Sharma-led team India was engaged in a five-match Test series against England, which the home team had already won yesterday. Prominent players such as Mohammed Shami and Virat Kohli have missed this series due to injury and personal reasons, respectively.

Meanwhile, the team will play in the Indian Premier League (IPL) following this Test series, and after the end of the cash-rich league, Team India will head to the United States for the upcoming T20 World Cup.
