The captain of the Australian Cricket Team Steven Smith is disappointed by the big screen drama in the third One-Day International (ODI) against New Zealand in Hamilton as Kiwi players did not appeal for Mitchell Marsh dismissal but still Umpires went for referral to TV Umpire.
The match was on a very crucial stage when Australia needed 83 runs off 99 balls whereas they had 5 wickets in hand and Mitchell Marsh was batting very well on 41 off 41 balls. Marsh had also won the second game from a similar position but then this happened.
New Zealand were not too sure themselves and it looked they would move on, but the replay showed that the inside edge may have gone to be boot of Marsh and then was caught by the bowler Matt Henry. The TV Umpire adjudged Marsh out and Australia lost the match by 55 runs.
Smith said that he has no confusion by the fact that it was out but it would not be correct if Smith waits there for the replay on the big screen if he is given LBW wrongly. He said that the umpires should have moved on with the game if New Zealand players had not appealed enough.
The Australian captain said that there is decision review system for the bowling side as well and if 15 seconds are up then there should not be any review. He said that he was angry when the replay was shown on the screen and the play was stopped.
