‘Bail us out!’ Kohli, Finch feel sorry about heavy Zing bails
India skipper Virat Kohli and his Australian counterpart Aaron Finch are not seemingly pleased at the sight of flashing LED bails not coming off after being hit that happened a number of times during the ongoing World Cup.
The latest incident took shaped as the luck of David Warner; the Aussie batsman survived once after the lighted Zing bails rejected to leave its’ place that was, however, the 10th such occasions in this tournament.
The reason is the overweight of bails due to whole lot of wires inserted in them to get the light flashed on time.
The Indian skipper is far more surprised than Finch witnessing even fast bowlers failing to outstretch bails as in the case of Warner when it was Bhuvneshwar Kumar who was in the bowling end.
“If I see something happening like that, I’d be very surprised, also. And these are fast bowlers. These are not your medium-paced bowlers.
“I don’t know, and MS (Dhoni) said we checked the stump hole, as well. The stump was not in very hard, it was actually loose. So I don’t know what’s actually wrong with the stump, the outer coating of the stump,” Kohli said.
South Africa’s Quinton de Kock, Sri Lankan Dimuth Karunaratne, West Indian Chris Gayle and Mohammad Saifuddin of Bangladesh already enjoyed this luck at this World Cup however it felt by the bowlers or not.
Aussie skipper Aaron Finch described it as hard and unfair.
“Yeah, I think so. It wasn’t – we were on the right end of it today, but I think going forward, you want – it’s a bit unfair at times, isn’t it. And I know David was – hit the stumps pretty hard,” Finch said.
“But it does seem to be happening more and more, which is unfortunate, because you’d hate to see something like that happen in a World Cup final or a semifinal… you’ve done the hard work as a bowler or a fielding side to set a player up or get the mistake and it not be rewarded,” Finch told after the match against India.
