Watch: Australia take a hilarious DRS for an lbw appeal
Australia took a hilarious DRS for an LBW appeal in the ongoing third ODI game between England and Australia at Manchester.
England’s long summer is at the closing day of it, with England and Australia facing each other in the three-match ODI series decider. After losing the first game, the hosts gave a good fight back and secured the second ODI with them. Following two thrilling games, both teams are sweating out in the series decider.
In the series decider, England won the toss and elected to bat first. After being asked to ball first, Australia started the match with a fiery spell from Mitchell Starc. The left-arm seamer sent back Jason Roy and Joe Root to the pavilion, without any change to the score column.
After a hectic batting collapse, Jonny Bairstow and Sam Billing counter-attacked the Australian bowlers and rebuilt the England innings. The duo had a 114 runs partnership, before the dismissal of Sam Billings on 57. On the other hand, Jonny Bairstow added yet another ton to his name.
Meanwhile, Australia had a terrible DRS on the field for an lbw decision. It happened in the 19th over, which was bowled by Adam Zampa. Jonny Bairstow defended the ball and opponents went on for an lbw appeal. Adam Zampa and Aaron Finch believed that the ball hit the pads and challenged the umpire’s decision.
In the replay, it ended as a hilarious one for Australia. The ball was hitting the bat nicely and there wasn’t a tiny chance for the ball hitting the pad. In the end, the review ended as one of the bizarre ones in the game. In the first ODI also Eoin Morgan took one such bizarre DRS.
