- First T20 between India and West Indies
- There was confusion about DRS
Ind Vs Wi, 1st T20: Team India’s first bowling came in the first T20 match played between India and West Indies in Kolkata. During the West Indies innings, something happened that caused a lot of confusion on the field. All this happened for a review, because on one hand captain Rohit Sharma took the review at the behest of former captain Virat Kohli and on the other hand the umpire declared the ball wide.
Actually, it happened in the over of debutant Ravi Bishnoi. In the eighth over of the innings, when the West Indies chase was batting on the ball of Rabbi Bishnoi, at that time the ball came out from his pad and reached directly in the hands of Rishabh Pant. Rabi Bishnoi, Rishabh Pant, Rohit Sharma appealed but the umpire gave it wide.
Kohli is very clear on DRS referrals. His experience truly shows https://t.co/Upsa1uGRrl

Meanwhile, former captain Virat Kohli came and asked Rohit to take a review. Virat Kohli said that the sound of pad and bat has come, but Rohit Sharma was surprised that the umpire had given a wide. The special thing is that Rohit Sharma took the review, but the umpire had already handed over the decision to the third umpire.
The umpire first gave the decision to the third umpire regarding the stump, but later gave the decision for review, then it was found that the ball had hit the stump. In such a situation, the wicket was not found, but the umpire changed his decision of wide. However, Roston Chase could not do much better and was dismissed after scoring 4 runs.
Let us tell you that India won the toss and decided to bowl first in this match. Ravi Bishnoi made his debut for Team India in this match.
