NZ vs IND: Netizens lashes out at Virat Kohli for wasting a review in the second Test

Virat Kohli’s horror run in New Zealand continues as the Indian skipper was dismissed for three on Day 1 of the ongoing second Test in Christchurch on Saturday.

Kohli’s hundred-less run extended to 21 innings in international cricket. He has now managed just 204 runs in 10 innings with only one fifty on the ongoing tour of New Zealand.


Having survived a tricky period of 15 minutes before the lunch break, Kohli got out in the second over after the break at the Hagley Oval.

The 31-year-old missed a straight ball from Tim Southee and was adjudged LBW for 3.


Notably, the Delhi-lad went for a review after discussing with non-striker Cheteshwar Pujara for a considerable amount of time even as the call looked plumb. As it turned out, there were 3 reds and the on-field umpire’s decision stayed.

Kohli has had a history of poor DRS calls. As a batsman, he has found success in only 2 out of 13 DRS reviews in Test cricket. Clearly, Twitterati wasn’t happy with Kohli wasting yet another review.

Here’s how the fans reacted on Twitter:
