All hell broke loose when Daryl Mitchell was given out by the third umpire Shaun Haig even after seeing that there was a hotspot mark on the bat while reviewing the wicket. The Twitterati were baffled by what was just happened and started criticizing the third umpire for the horrible decision.
That's a horrendous decision!
A clear mark on hotspot apparently wasn't enough for third umpire to say there was an edge after relying on Snicko which showed flatline as the ball passed the bat but a spike just afterwards#NZvIND pic.twitter.com/R5mS9mhX2A— TheGrandstandView (@Thegstandview) February 8, 2019
Even the Indian fans were shocked by the decision!
Drama at Eden Park, Auckland! A lot of questions will be asked of the third umpire Shaun Haig, Hotspot and DRS.— Ameya Tilak (@ameyatilak) February 8, 2019
Daryl Mitchell must be gutted and confused at the same time. #NZvIND #INDvNZ #TeamIndia #DarylMitchell #KrunalPandya #DRS #Hotspot #T20I
Looks like the Indians fans aren't able to enjoy this victory because of that decision!
Chaos at @edenparknz! Dear @ICC A clear inside edge picked up by Hotspot on the review by #DarylMitchell, but 3rd umpire ignores it & declares him OUT, based on ball-tracking. #NewZealand lose their review. Indian Cricket Fans want a fair match. Plz. do justice. #NZvIND #INDvsNZ— Deb Nandy 🇮🇳 (@BeingDebjoy) February 8, 2019
Brilliant performance by Shaun Haig! Hopefully, he will be called up for the World Cup to play for the Indian team! :P
But, what a show by Krunal Pandya!
Krunal Pandya is highly underrated all rounder , he needs to be given more chances. #NZvIND— Ashwin Dixit (@AshwinDixit10) February 8, 2019
This stats just elevates his performance today!
And the customary Ross Taylor run-out happened today! What a throw by Vijay Shankar that was!
Another day, another Ross Taylor run out #NZvIND— Couch Coach (@CouchCoachRFC) February 8, 2019
This could be crucial. Brilliant throw and run out by Vijay Shankar.— Nicket (@Nicket_S) February 8, 2019

Magnificent comeback by India after the 1st T20I loss to New Zealand!
Same teams, same set of players, completely different result. Underlines the great importance of taking wickets early. #NZvIND— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) February 8, 2019
Damn, Rohit Sharma is giving a good competition to Virat Kohli!
