#NZvInd: Kohli wastes DRS, fans fume

Team India has once again showed a disappointing play in New Zealand. The second Test between the visitors and hosts got underway and team India were bowled out for 242 runs in 63 overs. Kyle Jamieson struck five wickets even though Pujara, Vihari and Prithvi Shaw scored half centuries.

However, the fans and netizens are fuming in captain Virat Kohli for wasting a Decision Review System (DRS). Going into details, Kohli was hit on the pads in the 25th over by Tim Southee. The LBW appeal was plumb and on field umpire did not hesitate to raise his finger. But Kohli opted for a DRS and the third umpire too confirmed that the LBW is legitimate.

Fans are fuming for the fact that Kohli knows that it was out yet he took DRS and wasted it. The DRS might have been useful for other batsmen. Every team gets two DRS opportunities in their innings and before Kohli stepped into the crease, team India had already used one.

Coming to the match, the BlackCaps finished the day one with losing no wicket for 63 runs. They look to put a solid total in the first innings. It is just a matter of time that team India loses the second Test as well. Fans have absolutely no hope on this current Test team which is incapable of playing overseas.
