Joe Root’s Shocking Dismissal Reignites DRS Debate! You Won’t Believe Michael Vaughan’s Take on the Controversy

In the ongoing cricket match between India and England, there’s been a lot of talk about the Decision Review System (DRS). The visiting team’s captain, Ben Stokes, was unhappy with it after his team suffered a big loss in Rajkot. Then in Ranchi, there was more controversy when former captain Joe Root was given out in a way that made people question the DRS again.

In the second innings, England had a 46-run lead but struggled against India’s spin bowlers. Ravichandran Ashwin, one of India’s bowlers, got some quick wickets, including removing Root. But Root’s dismissal raised eyebrows because it brought the DRS system into question.

It happened when Ashwin bowled a delivery that seemed to hit Root’s leg before the wicket. The umpire wasn’t sure if it was out, but India’s players decided to challenge the decision using the DRS. The replay showed that the ball didn’t touch the bat, but the ball-tracking technology suggested it would have hit the stumps. However, many thought the ball was pitching outside the leg stump, which should have made it not out.

This decision left Root surprised and frustrated, and even former England captain Michael Vaughan criticized the technology afterward. “You can all make your own minds up,” wrote Vaughan.

England ended their batting session at 120/5, with opener Zak Crawley playing a crucial innings. Thanks to him, England now has a lead of 166 runs. Earlier, India scored 307 runs in their first innings, with wicketkeeper batter Dhruv Jurel playing a good innings of 90 runs.
