T Natarajan has been a revelation for India in the white-ball series and was again about to take a big fish Wade out but a late DRS call denied India the chance to dismiss him. Replays showed that if the DRS was taken on time, it was three reds and would have got India the Wade wicket.
MS Dhoni where are you? Wherever you are can we get you over to Sydney right away? Well, this is a mutual feeling among the millions of Indian fans after India missed a plumb LBW decision to get the wicket of Matthew Wade, who has been in phenomenal form this T20I series and made back-to-back fifties. It's just way too difficult for Indian fans to move on from Dhoni as India keep giving us many ways to remember the legend and his unbelievable skills on the cricket field of which one was to take DRS reviews to perfection. It often made us wonder if it was Dhoni behind the inception of the whole DRS system or what.
In the last game as well, India had taken a poor DRS review and today, they didn't take one on time as both KL Rahul and Virat Kohli missed the bus yet again. T Natarajan was handed over the 11th over with the expectation of removing Glenn Maxwell, whom he had dismissed in the first game as well. While he didn't come close to getting Maxwell out, he had Wade plumb in-front of the wicket, yes, even I could see that right at the onset but not the men who matter, as when India decided to go upstairs, umpire referred the decision only to find that it was too late to challenge the decision.
And to add not salt but chilly spices to injury, it turned out that if the review was taken on time, Wade would have been back to the pavilion as it was three reds and the batter was plumb in-front.
What's happening on the earth???
Definitely a bad joke of the day!
