Although India won the second Test at Delhi quite comfortably, there was one issue that grabbed everyone’s attention.

It was a video of India batter Virat Kohli discussing his controversial dismissal with umpire Nitin Menon.

During India’s first innings, Kohli was batting elegantly at 44 when a delivery from spinner Matt Kuhnemann got him lbw.

However, the videos suggested that the ball hit both the bat and Kohli’s front pad.

But, umpire Menon decided to give Kohli out to which the former took a review.

Even from the videos, the third umpire decided to go ahead and declared Kohli out.

As per the current cricket rules, the decision also stood the same despite the ball hitting both the bat and the pad.

Since then, this decision has sparked quite a controversy among fans.

In the first innings, India managed to score only 262 which gave Australia a one-run lead.

Now a fresh video has resurfaced from the second Test of Kohli having a chat with umpire Nitin Menon.

It’s probably about him discussing his dismissal with the latter.

Fans took to social media and posted this video that sparked a huge interest among others.

Australia started well but India dismantled them in the second innings

In the second innings, Australia got off to a good start and ended Day 2 at 61 for 1.

However, on Day 3, it was Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin who ruled the roost as they dismantled the Aussies.

While Jadeja took 7 wickets, Ashwin managed to get 3 and Australia were bundled out for just 113 runs.

The visitors were losing wickets at a regular consistency as Jadeja and Ashwin bowled in tandem.

In the end, India got a target of 115 runs that they chased down quite easily to retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy for the fourth time.
