IND VS ENG: Why is Virat Kohli Unhappy with England’s Batsmen?

As with any sport, cricket has rules. Some are great, but others can be poor. Those that aren’t good for the game are updated as the game progresses. These rules must, however, be followed. It is about playing the game in the right spirit and making it a Gentleman’s Game. Occasionally, players and teams find a way around some of these rules. Kohli was upset about an incident that occurred during India’s Test series against England.

Currently, the five-match series is tied at 1-1. A team that wins this game cannot lose the series. In this match, the players are trying their best to gain an advantage. The rivalry has been heated both on and off the pitch.

On the first day of this fourth Test at the Oval, Virat Kohli seemed unappreciative.

Due to the swing, batsmen took guard outside the crease at The Oval. The marking was earlier than usual. Rishabh Pant, an Indian batsman, was one of them. England, however, began the practice in a slightly different way.

There was a rough/dangerous area on the pitch while the English team was batting. The English batsmen tried to mark their guard quite near it. In general, batsmen should not do this since they will step repeatedly on the pitch, disrupting play.

Kohli and co. protested, but the umpires failed to issue them a warning. King Kohli did not seem happy about this, and it should have happened.

Harsha Bhogle explains the rule in detail in the video below. India’s captain describes his disappointment.

What seems insignificant at the moment could turn into a major issue in the future. The English might be able to bowl out the Indians fairly quickly if the pitch turns or cuts in over the next three days. As a result, they can use this tactic to try to win the game and the series.

Kohli disagreed with what he was saying for the same reason. Former cricketers and pundits did not warn. Emperors are supposed to protect the pitch at all costs, but they didn’t. They stood and watched like nothing was wrong the entire time. If the pitch collapses, we will know who is to blame!

Leeds Umpires Ask Rishabh Pant to Remove Tape From Gloves

At Headingley, the second day of the ongoing third Test between England and India was a tiring one for the visiting bowlers. Joe Root, who hit his third century in the series, added to England’s misery. With two wickets left in hand, the hosts have a huge lead of about 350 runs. During the day’s play, the young Indian wicket-keeper batsman, Rishabh Pant, and skipper Virat Kohli were seen chatting with both the on-field umpires.

In preparation for the third session, the on-field umpires, Alex Wharf and Richard Kettleborough asked Rishabh Pant to remove the tapes from his wicketkeeping gloves. According to the MCC laws, his fourth and fifth fingers were taped.

Law 27.2 designed for gloves states as follows, “If, as permitted under 27.1, the wicketkeeper wears gloves, they shall have no webbing between the fingers except joining index finger and thumb, where webbing may be inserted as a means of support”

It was interesting to note that the umpires took action after Dawid Malan was caught behind the wickets off the last ball before tea and shortly after walking out onto the field, they got Rishabh Pant’s gloves taped up. The commentators on-air, Nasser Hussain and David Lloyd, also clarified the laws regarding the gloves, indicating that one cannot tape them as Pant did.

Nasser Hussain said, “There’s lots in the laws of the game about the webbing, but we’re hearing from the third umpire, Richard Illingworth, that he wasn’t allowed and he’s not allowed to tape his gloves like that, so they’ve asked him to take that tape off.”

Lloyd argued that Dawid Malan’s dismissal was illegal and he should’ve been recalled. Nasser Hussain however contended that tapes had been present throughout the series, not just for this match.
