Despite Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s refusal, Virat Kohli took DRS, Martin Guptill out of the match
Between India and New Zealand, Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s experience once again appeared in the semi-final of the 2019 Cricket World Cup being played at Old Trafford, Manchester. India’s first over of the semi-final match came to throw Bhuvneshwar Kumar At that time, NZZ opener Martin Guptill was on the crease. Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled the first ball of the over which went on to the Guptill pad. During this time, Virat Bhubaneswar Kumar appealed but the umpire said not out. But Virat Kohli thought that Guptill was LBW out.
During this time, when Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Bhuvneshwar Kumar advised whether DRS should be taken or not. Standing behind the wicket, Dhoni refused to allow Virat to take the DRS. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Virat were confident that Martin Guptill was out. He took DRL bypassing Dhoni’s advice.
The case went to the third umpire. When the third umpire Rod Tucker was watching this appeal, it clearly showed that the ball was going out on the leg stump after falling on the outside. For this, the third umpire retained the Not Out decision of the field umpire. This proved once again that Dhoni is a master in taking the DRS. Against the experience of Dhoni again Virat Kohli proved to be a loser. If Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s advice was considered as Virat Kohli, India would have to lose the first review. There is a semifinal match anyway where the scope for mistake is very little.
