The third and decisive match of the three-game series between India and Australia is currently uncertain, as both teams have secured a victory and are determined to clinch the series with a win in the final match at Chennai.
At the time of writing, Australia has scored 139 runs for the loss of five wickets, with Hardik Pandya taking three wickets and Indian spinner Kuldeep Yadav taking two wickets.
Kuldeep Yadav had a strong performance with the ball, and in the 25th over, he appeared to have trapped Alex Carey with a googly that would have given him another wicket. However, umpire Nitin Menon was uninterested in the appeal.
Indian captain Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli were discussing whether to refer the decision to the third umpire when Yadav refused to take their call and returned to his crease, indicating that he was not interested in reviewing the decision.
The decision left Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma visibly frustrated and stunned, as a wicket at that moment would have put Australia on the backfoot with half their side already back in the dugout.
Kuldeep Yadav bowled an excellent delivery that nipped in and struck Alex Carey on the pads. Although the Indian team made a loud appeal, the umpire seemed uninterested in making a decision.
Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Ishan Kishan were seen discussing whether to take a review, but when they turned to Kuldeep for his opinion, the bowler was already walking back to his crease, much to the frustration of the Indian skipper and his teammates.
