Watch : Hardik Pandya Fumes Over Sight Screen Interruptions During ODI Series Opener Against Australia

Hardik Pandya Fumes Over Sight Screen

In the highly competitive game of cricket, even a minor interruption can have a significant impact on the match’s outcome. During the first match of the three-match ODI series between India and Australia at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium, the Indian skipper Hardik Pandya expressed his frustration with the repeated interruptions caused by the spectators moving around the sight screen.

Hardik Pandya, who returned to competitive cricket after a long hiatus, was leading the Indian side in the absence of Rohit Sharma, who was attending a family event. However, Hardik’s introduction to the bowling attack was marred by a person walking in front of the sight screen, causing him to stop midway through his run-up.

This interruption not only affected the bowler but also the batsman, Mitchell Marsh, who found it difficult to concentrate. Similar interruptions occurred a few overs earlier when Mohammed Shami was bowling, leaving Hardik Pandya livid.

To address the issue, Hardik had a discussion with the on-field umpires, suggesting that the spectators be asked to sit in a designated area instead of disrupting the game regularly. It is crucial to note that such interruptions can break the momentum of the teams and result in missed opportunities.

Former Indian Wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel Calls for Change in DRS Rules After Steve Smith’s Clever Tactics

Parthiv Patel Calls for Change in DRS Rules After Steve Smith

Australian skipper Steve Smith’s tactics during the third test for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in Indore were not only praised for his captaincy skills but also scrutinized for exploiting a loophole in the Decision Review System (DRS) rule. Former Indian wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel has now called for changes in the DRS rules after Smith took advantage of the loophole, leading to the Australian side saving their DRS reviews.

Steve Smith discovered that each time a stumping appeal was made, it was immediately sent upstairs by the on-field umpire and the third umpire checked for an outside edge as well. This loophole helps the fielding side and saves them from losing a review on potential caught-behind dismissals. Australian wicketkeeper Alex Carey made sure to remove the bails after which Steve Smith made a loud appeal for stumping, convincing the on-field umpire to go upstairs for the review.

Steve Smith exploited the loophole in the rule quite effectively and even got success twice including the wicket of Ravichandran Ashwin in the first innings. While the Australian side managed to save their DRS reviews using this tactic, it didn’t go well with many experts including Parthiv Patel who urged for a change in DRS rules.

“The on-field umpire should avoid going to the third umpire if he is sure that it’s not out when there is an appeal for a stumping,” Parthiv Patel said on Cricbuzz. “The ideal solution is that the TV umpire should only review the stumping if the appeal is made only for a stumping. A caught-behind should not be checked unless the fielding captain opts for a review,” he further added.

Steve Smith’s leadership was applauded on most occasions as he kept the Indian team under constant pressure, but his DRS tactics received backlash from experts. In the third test, Team India were bowled out for just 163 runs in the second innings as Nathan Lyon took an eight-wicket haul. The Australian batters comfortably chased down the target of 76 in the second innings on Day 3 in Indore with 9 wickets in hand.

As cricket evolves, rules need to be adapted and refined to ensure the game is played fairly. With Parthiv Patel’s suggestion of the TV umpire only reviewing stumping appeals, the DRS rule could potentially be more effective in ensuring fair play.

Robert Lewandowski breaks World Cup duck for Poland

Robert Lewandowski scored his first World Cup goal to give Poland a vital victory 2.0 over a spirited Saudi Arabia.


Poland were second best for most of the first half – three of their players were booked in the first 20 minutes – but Piotr Zielinski put his side up against the run of play in the 39th minute.


Saudi Arabia, who played with intensity and caused problems on the pitch from the outset, almost immediately had a chance to strike back when Krystian Bielik conceded a penalty.


Salem Al Dawsari stepped in from 12 yards out, but his effort was saved by Polish keeper Wojciech Szczęsny, and he followed it up with another crucial stop, heading in Al Burayk’s rebound.


The second half followed the same pattern, but the game was still in the balance with 10 minutes left. In the 83rd minute, Lewandowski got a defensive error by Abdullah Al-Maliki and scored his first World Cup goal to secure three vital points for Poland.
