Ind vs WI: Dhoni slams poor umpiring in first Test

first_imgIndian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Thursday flayed poor umpiring in the first Test against the West Indies after beating them by 63 runs at Sabina Park in Jamaica.Dhoni said, “The match would have ended even earlier had correct decisions been made and we would have been in the hotel much earlier.”As many as three Indian batsmen — Dhoni (16), Virat Kohli (15) and Suresh Raina (27) — fell to dubious decisions which could have gone the visitors’ way.Kohli was the first one to be declared out following a debatable decision by English umpire Ian Gould in India’s second innings. Then Raina was given out off Devendra Bishoo while attempting a sweep shot. However replays showed there was no glove or bat involved. Dhoni was also unlucky as he fell to a no ball delivery.These umpiring decisions might open the debate over the use of umpire decision review system (UDRS) again, which the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has opposed.The BCCI has been opposing the UDRS and has refused its usage in the upcoming Test series in England.last_img
