Kohli loses his cool over third-umpire’s decision


Mumbai Indians registered their first win of the season against Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Wankhede Stadium as they defeated Bangalore by 46 runs.

MI skipper Rohit Sharma and Evin Lewis, and a cameo from Hardik Pandya helped the team post 207-6 on the scoreboard.

RCB didn’t get much opportunity to get back in the game as their wickets kept falling. Apart from the class batting from Virat Kohli, one another highlight of the match was Kohli’s disappointment over third umpire’s decision.

The incident took place in the 19th over of the first innings when Chris Woakes bowled a peach of a delivery to Hardik Pandya.

The batsman was given an out by the on-field umpire for caught behind, but Pandya asked for a review. While everyone was expecting the decision to be out, the third umpire saved him and gave him a not out. This decision made Kohli furious and he raised an objection with the on-field umpires.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the whole narrative:
