India Vs New Zealand Virat Kohli Lbw Out
India Vs New Zealand 2021: The return of Virat Kohli to the Indian Test squad has become even worse. He was controversially ruled out of the second Test against New Zealand in the Mumbai Test. Virat Kohli, who played four balls without opening an account, was dismissed. He became the LBW for the ball thrown by Ajaz Patel. However the review did not appear to be as comfortable as the umpire on the field did. The ball first hit the bat and seemed to hit the pad. But the third umpire defended the on-field umpire’s decision. However, this time he also made a mistake. After seeing the review Virat Kohli, the Indian camp looked amazing. This made him the third umpire target on social media.
Virat Kohli did not play in the first Test against New Zealand in Kanpur. Rested on that test. Virat Kohli returns to the biggest format in cricket in the Mumbai Test. Cheteshwar Pujara was dismissed without opening an account and he returned to bat at number four. Bowler Ajaz Patel came to bowl. Kohli defended the first three balls. He also tried to defend for the fourth ball. But, the ball hit the pad. The Kiwi team appealed. Field umpire Anil Chaudhary raises his finger. Kohli immediately took up the review.
The review found that the ball hit the bat and pad almost at the same time. The ball hits the bat on one side and the pad on the other. In addition, the movement was also seen on the Ultra Edge. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. However, while continuing the review, it was assumed that the ball hit the bat and went towards the pad.
Didn’t see the third umpire ball tracking ..
However, the third umpire said there was no evidence that he had hit the first bat. He asked the umpire on the field to abide by his decision. But he did not even see the ball tracking before saying whether he was going to the ball stumps or not. Anil Chaudhary recalled. There is nothing wrong with that. The ball fell off the line and went forward and hit the middle stump. The Indian captain had to join the pavilion in four balls without opening an account. However he was not satisfied with this decision. On the way to the pavilion, the umpire spoke to Nitin Menon and expressed his displeasure.
The Indian dressing room was also shocked at the decision. It was clear from his face that he was not happy with coach Rahul Dravid’s decision. Afterwards Virat Kohli went to the dressing room and saw his review. The umpire was seen smiling as he watched the decision on TV.

Pretty clearly taking the edge and change in direction of the ball. Just that the third umpire was too nervous to take the right decision. Said enough he forgot to check ball tracking. pic.twitter.com/AS77aO2mtQ

How was that OUT? Felt Kohli got a faint inside edge before the ball hit the pad. Third umpire needed conclusive evidence. Tough luck. What do you think?
