India vs Australia: Virat Kohli’s Dismissal Sparks Debate on Twitter

Indian captain Virat Kohli went on to score his 25th Test century on Sunday, but was finally dismissed for 123 by Pat Cummins. But his wicket was a point of controversy on Day 3 at Perth.

Kohli went for a drive towards cover but only managed to edge it to Peter Handscomb at third slip, who took a low catch. Handscomb signalled that he had caught the catch clean but the centurion was not convinced. On-field Umpire Kumar Dharmasena went upstairs for the decision, with the soft signal being ‘Out’. After replays proved to be inconclusive to overturn the decision, Third Umpire Nigel Llong stuck to Dharmasena’s decision and Kohli had to walk.

Here’s the catch:

The incident sparked a massive debate on Twitter, with verdicts varying from individual to individual.
