Indians on social media carrying on like pork chops about Kohli's dismissal like giving him out was a war crime.
Saying that the TV umpire got so obsessed with whether it hit the bat or pad first that he forgot to look at ball-tracking.
Is that true?

Of course. Let's give Victoria a second Test before one of our first class cricket states Tasmania get's one.

A very AFL thing to do!!!!
Can't get a read on what the favoured venue is. Every day there seems to be a new favourite in the media. A couple of days ago, Melbourne gaining a second test seemed all the talk. Yesterday Hobart was firming as favourite. Sydney seems to be all the talk today, with Adelaide putting their hat in the ring too.

No, ball tracking had it hitting the stumps. The field umpire gave him out, no evidence to overturn it as it didn't appear to conclusively hit the bat first when going frame by frame. Ball tracking had it crashing into middle stump.

Kohli clearly edged it but did it hit the pad and bat at same time? Disgraceful decision only to the biased. Kohli clearly showed dissent, should have been sanctioned.

The questions should be asked about the ridiculous sub standard test wickets they dish up every year.

Poms leave out Anderson and Broad, win the toss and bat on a greentop under overcast skies.

Warner 70 not out by stumps.

1 ball, 1/0. I had a premonition Starc was going to bowl him, but in mine it was off stump.

Malan, the walking personification of the difference between T20 and Test cricket.

Hazlewood bowling beautifully, gets Root for a duck. Good catch Warner. 3/11.

35 years overdue, but there's finally a statue of AB at a cricket ground. And it's a beauty.

Gee Warne really hates Starc. Keep going on about Burns missing a juicy half volley that didn't swing.

Getting bowled around your legs 1st ball is kids cricket. At least make the umpire make a decision.

I've only just turned on, can't believe Root chose to bat. I assumed we'd lost the toss. All the hallmarks of a Cotch kicking into the wind in Adelaide in 2014 type decision.

Yeah, I'm watching it several times and I'm thinking "what am I missing, it's swung a mile"

Good piece this on how Warne handled criticism back in the day....... not very well.

Great article. I was shocked when Warne said Paine shouldn't play the first test (after the textgate saga first broke) and then said Smith shouldn't be captain because of Sandpaper Gate. And Warne Was always dark after he was as never appointed captain because of his misdemeanors.
