That India is struggling to correctly use the Decision Review System (DRS) is very much clear by now. Ever since the Indian team agreed to use the DRS during the England series, they have got only 17 correct decisions out of the 55 referrals that they have taken in the seven Test matches. In the first Test against Australia at Pune, Virat Kohli’s men tried seven reviews of which only one was successful.

Well, the storyline did not change in the ongoing second Test too where India wasted one of their reviews early on when they had an unsuccessful review against Australia skipper Steve Smith and their struggle with the review system became quite clear when they did not review the umpire’s not out decision even though Shaun Marsh had edged the ball to the wicketkeeper.

The incident happened in the 57th over of the innings when the Australian batsman seemed to have edged a Umesh Yadav delivery to the wicketkeeper. The Indian fielders went up in unison only to see the umpire giving his verdict in the batsman’s favour. Wriddhiman Saha looked excited and Virat Kohli even pondered over a review but with only one review remaining, the Indian skipper eventually decided to not review the umpire’s decision. However, replays showed the ball had made contact with Marsh’s gloves before going into the safe hands of Saha.

Here is a video of that incident:
