IND vs NZ Live: Dinesh Karthik supports umpire Virender Sharma’s unfair decision on Virat Kohli

BETADDA

IND vs NZ Live: India and New Zealand are fighting neck to neck in the second test match. Moreover, this test match will also mean a lot to both teams as this is the series decider match.

India have done fairly well in the second test match so far. Moreover, the pitch is also behaving fine despite the wet outfield in the first session of the game. It is likely that the pitch will behave in a similar way throughout the game.

The men in blue went on to start the second day with a lot of positive momentum in their hands. However, things did not go according to the plan as Wriddhiman Saha was gone early on. Even Ravichandran Ashwin got out in the very next ball for a golden duck.

However, Mayank Agarwal stood like a wall against the constant pressure from the New Zealand bowlers. He also went on to score 150 runs in the first innings of the second test match in Mumbai.

Moreover, even Axar Patel gave full support to him as both the lads went on to brew an important partnership. Axar Patel also went on to score his first fifty in test cricket. As a result of that, India went on to reach 325 runs in the first innings of the game.

However, New Zealand went on to play some woeful cricket against the Indian team. The Kiwis were never really in the game with their batting and they constantly lost wickets.

As a result of that, New Zealand were all out for a mere 62 runs in their first innings. This is one of their lowest score in test cricket history.

However, a lot of controversies has been happening due to the bad umpiring in this series. The Indian umpires have constantly given blunderous decisions throughout the test series.

It is unfortunate that the umpiring standard in India is so low. However, things got heated up when Virat Kohli was given out unfairly by third umpire Virender Sharma.

Though the ball had gone on to nick Virat Kohli’s bat but the LBW shout was still given as out. Moreover, this decision has gone on to create a major uproar against umpire Virender Sharma.

However, Dinesh Karthik has gone on to back Virender Sharma. Dinesh Karthik feels that Virender Sharma did right as there was no conclusive evidence.

He said, “According to the rule books, there has to be conclusive evidence to turn the decision over, and I think umpire Virender Sharma did not find conclusive evidence even though the Twitter world and the rest of the social media world are very sure it hit the bat first.”
