Australian captain Tim Paine is disappointed on the Decision Review System (DRS) after his controversial dismissal in the second Test on Day 2 against New Zealand in Melbourne.
Paine was on his way to make his maiden Test hundred when the ball hit on his leg by kiwi pacer Neil Wagner for 79 and was given out after New Zealand reviewed the umpire’s original not out decision.
He was asked by a broadcaster about the DRS on which he replied: “Don’t Start.”
“I thought from the length that it pitched, and the bloke bowling around the wicket, it’s pretty difficult to hit you in line, and hit the stumps,” Paine said.
Even the commentators were surprised that it was hard to understand that the ball could have cut so much and struck Paine in front and went on to hit the middle stumps.
Aussie skipper anger turned double when New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor surviving a review after initially being given out lbw late in the day. The ball looked to be hitting the stumps from the naked eye but the tracking technology showed it going over.
Paine ended the topic by saying. ” I have got a few doubts, no doubt about that and I don’t want to go far because it will put me under trouble but we are witnessing these things time by time again.
Australia are ahead of New Zealand in the second Test. Aussies scored a big total of 467 in the first innings followed by two quick kiwi wickets later in the day on the score of 44.
