WATCH: Virat Kohli bursts out in frustration after marginal LBW call – Another Review gone in vain !

Virat Kohli has always had a bad relationship with DRS calls and it was proved yet another time during the third day of the first test between India and England. England captain Joe Root dismantled India’s pace attack tonight with an unbeaten knock of 180 off 321. He single-handedly scored almost half of England’s total score. He was unfortunate to miss out on his Double Century as no other batsman in his team could live up to complement his knock and support him. Irrespective of that, his knock of 180 will be remembered by many, especially if England proceed to win the series.

The DRS review that infuriated Virat Kohli involved Joe Root. During the end of the day, Joe Root was saved by a whisker as he survived a close leg-before shout. Virat Kohli took the decision upstairs but unfortunately the Umpire’s decision of Not out was not overturned (Umpire’s call).

The Indian skipper was visibly very upset at the decision not being overturned despite it being such a close call and he openly expressed his frustration on the field. Virat Kohli was earlier criticized on Day 2 after wrongly using two reviews successively in an over of Mohammad Siraj despite wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant advising him against it. The Indian skipper is understandably very upset and frustrated at his inability to use reviews successfully and when his review got downplayed despite it being such a close call, he exploded out.

As it now stands, England have lost all their wickets at stumps and have a mere lead of 27 runs. The Indian batsmen will now come in with hopes of bettering their first innings score. However, if they hope to win the match, they better act fast as there are only two days left.
