It is common to witness a controversy between the umpire Nitin Menon and Indian star batsman Virat Kohli these days. In the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy’s second Test match, Nitin Menon once again gave a wrong decision against Virat Kohli.
The ball had touched the bat first, but the umpire gave him LBW out. This created a lot of controversy. When Virat Kohli saw the replay in the dressing room after being dismissed, he was surprised because he was not out at all.
When the Indian team came out to field, Virat Kohli approached umpire Nitin Menon to ask him about the decision. He was extremely unhappy with the decision. An old video of Virat Kohli explaining to an umpire about the bat and the crease is going viral on social media.
In the video, Virat Kohli was seen explaining the bat and the crease to the umpire. Actually, during the 26th over of the match, England’s batsman Ben Stokes couldn’t reach the crease while taking the second run.
It is usually seen that when the bat is on the crease line, the umpire gives it out, but in this case, the umpire gave Ben Stokes not out, which made captain Virat Kohli unhappy. At that time, Ben Stokes had scored only 27 runs. India was evenly matched against England in the match, but then Stokes played a stormy innings.
India lost the match by 6 wickets and Ben Stokes had scored 99 runs in just 52 balls with the help of 4 fours and 10 sixes in this match. This match was played as the second ODI when England was on a tour of India in 2021. In this regard, cricket fans believe that umpire Nitin Menon always tries to show his personal animosity towards Virat Kohli.
