Kohli’s bat or pad hit first? (Virat Kohli LBW)
Actually, Kohli got the third ball of the 50th over flat, which came in fast without turning. Kohli’s bat was close to the pad but despite that the on-field umpire gave LBW. After this, Kohli took a review, in which the umpire’s call cost him dearly. The umpire felt that the ball had hit the bat first and in such a situation Virat Kohli LBW had to return to the pavilion.
However, some cricket fans objected to the umpire’s decision, saying that the UltraEdge showed spikes, due to which it was clear that the ball had first hit the bat and not the pad.
