Everyone’s favourite Indian captain Virat Kohli is riling up the Aussies again.
The Indians had some well publicised issues with the Decision Review System in the first two Tests, with Kohli guilty of burning some really bad ones.
These things would have been firmly on Kohli’s mind when the Aussies lost their second review in the 58th over at Ranchi today, burning it on an LBW appeal against Che Pujara that appeared to hit the bat first.
Kohli came out of the Indian dressing room on to the balcony and sarcastically clapped and jeered when the review was struck down.
Further complicating the issue, Brett Lee on commentary slowed the review down more than the third ump had, and found that the ball probably did hit the pad fractionally before the bat.
Making matters worse for the Aussies, the next ball Nathan Lyon got Murali Vijay to play a thick inside edge on to his pads that looped up in to the hands of Pete Handscomb at short leg.
They appealed vociferously but were turned down by umpire Ian Gould without any recourse for appeal.
The Aussies are finding it tough going in Ranchi, with India cruising to 1/173 in the 66th over in reply to Australia's 451.
