[Watch] India’s DRS Woes Continue, Jurel’s Costly Misjudgment

In the world of cricket, decisions can turn the tide of a match. In the recent India vs. England test match in Ranchi, India’s use of the Decision Review System (DRS) drew sharp criticism, particularly for a misstep by young wicket-keeper Dhruv Jurel.

For a long time, India had a reputation for astute DRS decisions, earning the moniker “Dhoni Review System.” However, recent times have seen a decline in their effectiveness, and this match highlighted their struggles.

England’s Steady Batting

During the second session of the fourth test, England’s Joe Root and Ben Foakes showed resilience, accumulating runs steadily despite some close calls. Root’s unbeaten 67 and Foakes’ gritty 28 off 108 balls demonstrated their determination.

Jurel’s Costly Misjudgment

 

In the 60th over, Ravindra Jadeja’s delivery to Foakes prompted a confident appeal from the Indian team, including Jurel, who seemed convinced of an lbw (leg before wicket) dismissal. Despite protests and consultations, the decision remained unaltered.

The DRS Blunder

Jadeja’s plea for a review ended up costing India dearly. Despite indications that the ball was veering down leg side and missing the stumps, Jurel’s assurance led to the team exhausting their final review.


Twitterati Reacts

The incident sparked a flurry of reactions on Twitter, with fans expressing disappointment over India’s misuse of the DRS and the implications it had for the remainder of the innings.
