The dismissal of India’s opening batsmen Rohit Sharma by West Indies fast bowler Kemar Roach during the World Cup 2019 league match created quite the storm on social media. The uproar questioned the accuracy of the Decision Review System (DRS).

The on-field umpire had declared the India opener not out and it was overturned by the TV umpire after West Indies captain Jason Holder called for a review. Disappointed with the decision, Rohit Sharma was seen leaving the field shaking his head.

The replay showed a spike when the ball passed both bat and pad at the same time. However, on watching countless replays people claim that there was no clear evidence. With no conclusive evidence, the TV umpire shouldn’t have overturned the decision of the on-field umpire.

Questioning the decision, former Australia player Brad Hogg wrote on twitter, “Full sun on the ball, in the picture, on the right frame. Ball has hit the pad not the bat. Technology making the world a clearer picture, NOT! Rohit has to accept the umpires’ decision, ctrl+alt+delete!”.

India are unbeaten in their six matches so far and have displaced England at the top of the One-day International (ODI) rankings.
