The Indian team’s poor use of the Decision Review System in the ongoing Test series against Australia has received widespread criticism. Ever since India have embraced the technology during the England series last year, they have enjoyed very limited success. They have got only 17 correct decisions out of the 55 referrals that they have taken in the seven Test matches before the Border-Gavaskar series.
In the first Test against Australia at Pune, Virat Kohli’s men tried seven reviews of which only one was successful. And their miseries continued in the ongoing second Test too. On the second day of the Bengaluru Test against Australia here, India took three reviews and all of them wrong.
India skipper Virat Kohli’s penchant for using the DRS on almost every available opportunity has already made him a subject of troll on the social media and now the Australian fans have taken a dig at the 28-year old for the same.
The incident occurred when the camera switched to a section of Australian fans in the M Chinnaswamy stadium. At first the Aussie fans were just waving their hands in excitement but one of them suddenly began showing the ‘T’ sign – a signal which is used by the players when they want to review the umpire’s decision. Well, only they can reveal the reason behind their gesture but looking at their reaction, it is quite clear that they were mocking the Indian team for their poor use of the review system.
Here is a clip of that incident:
