Another DRS controversy is sparked by Joe Root’s dismissal, and Michael Vaughan pokes fun at technology

<p>Throughout the recent IND vs. ENG Test series, one of the main talking points has been the Decision Review System (DRS). Ben Stokes, the visiting captain, had previously questioned the technology after the most significant loss he had ever experienced against India in Rajkot. Joe Root, the former captain of England, was dismissed in the second innings on Sunday, delivering yet another shock to the English camp in Ranchi.</p>

<p>Despite having a 46-run advantage at the start of their second innings, England found it difficult to counter India’s spin onslaught. Following a few of early breakthroughs, Ben Duckett and Ollie Pope were dismissed by Ravichandran Ashwin. By dismissing Root, he further damaged England, but the manner in which the removal transpired raised questions about the DRS system as a whole.</p>
<p>When Ashwin mishandled his delivery on the leg-stump line, it went over the inside edge and wrapped Root on the front pad. It was the last delivery of the 17th over. Since it seemed as if the delivery was pitching outside the leg stump, umpire Kumara Dharmasena was unconvinced. Nonetheless, Rohit Sharma and others felt secure enough to request the DRS.</p>
<p>Despite UltraEdge’s prediction that the bat would not be involved, Root was forced to retreat after the ball-tracking system displayed three reds. The ball’s pitch, nevertheless, caught the English camp off guard. Even though it seemed like the ball was pitching outside of the leg-stumped player for the most part, the technology deemed it reasonable enough to declare Root out of bounds.</p>
<p>Another former England captain, Michael Vaughan, made fun of the technology in a post on X, while the former was devastated by his dismissal.</p>
<p>Vaughan stated, “You can all make your own minds up,” describing the pitching zone of the ball after the bowler delivered it.</p>
<p><strong>The other internet users responded as follows:</strong></p>
<p>Following the Indian spin trio’s performance in the second session, England headed to tea at 120/5. With 166 runs up at this point, England can credit starter Zak Crawley for scoring 60 off 91 balls, which contributed a significant amount of runs. Prior to this, India’s first-inning total of 307 was bowled out, despite a determined 90 from wicketkeeper-battler Dhruv Jurel.</p>
