Ravi Shastri Speaks After Team India Misses Cameron Green LBW Opportunity. Chahal’s pitch smacked Cameron Green in the pads in the fifth over. The Indian players, though, did not file an appeal. Then, in the sixth over, replays revealed that Green, who went on to score 61 off 30 balls, had been out LBW.
The Indian cricket team had a miserable day on the field on Tuesday, losing to Australia by four wickets. A mediocre Indian bowling attack performed poorly, failing to defend a 208-run total. All of Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4-0-52-0), Harshal Patel (4-0-49-0), Yuzvendra Chahal (3.2-0-42-1), Umesh Yadav (2-0-27-2) and Hardik Pandya (2-0-22-0) gave up runs. Even more perplexing was Team India’s inability to identify an LBW opportunity during the opening T20I of the three-match series.

Former Indian cricketers providing commentary were irritated.
“In the preceding over, he tried for a sweep with a straight delivery. India did not conduct a review. The ball was bouncing off the stumps “Sunil Gavaskar stated this.
Ravi Shastri then responded: “Also, great and clean hitting. Surprising since he had crossed. I’m just wondering if it was the height or if it happened outside the line.”
Murali Kartik also got involved. “I wish we could zoom in on the cameras. Dinesh Karthik, the wicketkeeper, Chahal, and Rohit Sharma, the batsman… they all looked at each other as soon as they noticed the enormous screen. I wish we could have panned right away “He stated.
Then Shastri made an MS Dhoni remark. “Keepers play such a vital role. This is where MS excelled “He stated.
India is behind 1-0 in the three-match series. The second Twenty20 International will be played on Friday in Nagpur.
