DRS shocker sends Vihari packing


//

Controversy has erupted on day two of the fourth Test between Australia and India at the SCG, with Hanuma Vihari the apparent victim of a DRS howler.

Vihari was given out caught by Marnus Labuschagne at short leg off the bowling of Nathan Lyon, but immediately reviewed umpire Ian Gould’s decision.

Third umpire Marais Erasmus upheld the on-field decision when DRS showed a spike, but closer examination showed the noise appeared to be after the ball had passed the bat.

“I think that one is going to be scrutinised a little bit more closely in the next short while,” said Adam Gilchrist on Fox Cricket.

“You look at the spike, and you look at where the ball is in conjunction with the bat, and it looks like it’s miles away,” said fellow commentator Brett Lee.

“Clearly it didn’t scratch the edge of the bat, the way I’m seeing it,” Gilchrist said.

“It’s definitely missed the bat,” Lee added.

Former Victorian captain Darren Berry was equally scathing.

“Another human error mistake using the technology,” he tweeted.

“That is NOT OUT.

“This system is so flawed and it continues to be a blight on our game.

“THE DRS IS rubbish.”

The wicket was Australia’s only success in the morning session, as India moved from its overnight score of 4-303 to a commanding position at 5-389 at lunch.

Cheteshwar Pujara has continued his fine series, he remains unbeaten on 181.

The Australian bowlers are once again toiling in oppressive conditions, with Nathan Lyon already delivering 38 overs, while each of the three frontline quicks have bowled more than 20 overs.
