IND vs AUS: Out or Notout, what does the MCC rule say in Virat Kohli’s LBW case, know

New Delhi: On the second day of the second Test being played between India and Australia, there was a lot of ruckus on Virat Kohli’s wicket. Kohli, playing on 44 on Saturday, became the victim of a controversial decision by the umpire. Kohli was given out by umpire Nitin Menon in the 50th over. When Kohli took DRS, it showed that the ball hit the bat and the pad at the same time.

After this, the third umpire also upheld Nitin Menon’s decision and finally Kohli had to return to the pavilion. After Kohli’s dismissal, Akshar Patel scored 74 and Ravichandran Ashwin scored 37 runs for Team India, but the entire team was dismissed for 262 runs. Let us know what the rule of the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), the rule-making body of cricket, says on Kohli’s LBW issue.

What is the rule if the ball hits the bat and the pad at the same time?

MCC has defined this rule of LBW through 36.2.2. According to this, if the ball makes contact with the batsman’s bat and body simultaneously, it will be considered as having touched the ball first with the bat. That is, the ball will be declared as not out by considering it to be the first touch with the bat. In this way, Kohli would have been not out according to the rules, but due to the wrong decision of the field umpire and the third umpire, Kohli had to return to the pavilion despite good batting. It has to be seen how much the ICC interferes in this matter.

On the third day, Australia will enter the field with a total lead of 62 runs.
