Virat Kohli unhappy after umpire abruptly stops Mohammed Shami in his bowling stride IND vs ENG 5th Test


Team India dominated the hosts in the ongoing 5th Test between India and England at Edgbaston. By the end of the second day’s play, the Indian bowlers sent 5 English batsmen to the pavilion for 84 runs. Captain Ben Stokes is standing with Jonny Bairstow at the crease and India are still 332 runs ahead. On the second day of the match, the game was halted several times due to rain, but during this time umpire Aleem Dar made a mistake on which Virat Kohli got furious. Kohli was even heard saying in the stump mic, ‘How can he stop in the middle of the ball?’

This incident happened in the first ball of the fourth over of the innings. After three overs of play, rain knocked on the ground. Shami, who came to throw the first ball of the fourth over, had reached the umpire with a run-up, when Aleem Dar tried to stop him seeing the rain increasing. Shami had taken his run-up, then he threw the ball but the batsman moved in front of the stumps.

King Kohli was annoyed by this sudden decision taken by the umpire. Actually, Shami could have been injured due to this action of the umpire. Because of which Kohli got angry.

Although Shami is an experienced bowler, he bowled the ball without interrupting his run-up despite the umpire’s decision so that he did not suffer any injury. The umpire called this ball a dead ball and all the players started running towards the dressing room. Kohli was also seen interacting with the umpire on his way out of the field.
