After Joe Root’s decision, Virat Kohli and India coach Ravi Shastri scream at the umpires.

Despite India’s dominance in the second Test against England, Virat Kohli was not pleased.

After the third day of the second Test against England in Chennai, Virat Kohli was dissatisfied with the umpires. India is on track to win convincingly and tie the series at 1-1. After Ravi Ashwin’s spectacular century led his side to 286 all out in their second innings, the hosts set England a huge mark of 482 to win.

Before a solid relationship between Rory Burns and Dan Lawrence, England lost opener Dominic Sibley early.

After Burns was caught at gully by Kohli off Ashwin, nightwatchman Jack Leach went first ball for Axar Patel’s second wicket.

With only a few minutes left in the day, England captain Joe Root had to trudge to the middle.

India felt they had their man in the final over.

Despite vociferous pleas from the bowler and fielders, Patel trapped Root on the crease, and umpire Nitin Menon kept his finger down.

India was confident it was out, so Kolhi requested a review.

The ball tracking system, however, stated that the impact for the LBW appeal was an umpire’s call, so the on-field ruling stood.

Kohli expressed his displeasure with the judgment and argued with umpire Menon.

At the conclusion of the game, the 32-year-old stayed to converse with the umpire.

Ravi Shastri, India’s coach, was irritated as well, and expressed his displeasure to the umpire as they walked off the field.

It was a disappointing finale to what had been an otherwise successful day for India.

Ashwin scored his sixth Test century and was pleased with his performance.

“The last time I swept was when I was 19 years old, and after I got out, I was dropped from the first XI,” he told Star Sports.

“I’ve been practicing the sweep; I’m not sure if it’s only happened in the last three days.

“Vikram Rathour has been extremely helpful in pursuing new possibilities. I’d want to give him credit for the way I’ve been swinging the bat in recent months.

“I’m not sure when my next Test will be here, but I’m really happy.

“I was,” says the narrator of the “Brinkwire Summary News.”
