Zak Crawley gets saved: India are currently squaring off against England in the first match of the ongoing Test series between them and so far, they have looked well in shape. The visitors picked up an early wicket in the form of English opener Rory Burns, thanks to the individual brilliance of Jasprit Bumrah. After that wicket, England have been successful to regain their momentum though but India’s pace attack has constantly kept them under pressure.

However, team India now have something to worry about as captain Virat Kohli has once again lost their Review early on in the first innings owing to a misjudgement. England’s man in-form Zak Crawley, while facing Mohammad Siraj, played a loose shot. He was late to bring his bat down to the nip-backer and the ball clipped around his knee roll before deflecting to the left of the keeper. The umpire ignored the calls of skipper Virat Kohli who looked totally convinced that there was involvement of the bat.
While going upstairs (taking the review), he even said to the umpire that there’s an “inside edge”. However, the scenes after the incident was reviewed, were totally different. The Ultra Edge clearly showed that there was no bat involved. Impact – umpire’s call and wickets are missing.

This is not the first time that Virat Kohli has totally misjudged a review. Infact, he has started to be termed by many as the ‘Worst Reviewer of all times.”
Although Md Siraj picked up Crawley’s wicket soon thereafter, Virat Kohli taking wrong reviews is a thing that India has to look into as it might soon turn out to be fatal.
