Melbourne: In the second innings of the ongoing Boxing Day Test against India, captain Tim Paine is unhappy with the dismissal of Matthew Wade. The Australian opener demanded uniformity in the decision review system (DRS).
On the third day of the match, the Indian captain took DRS against the decision of on-field umpire Paul Reifel after Ravindra Jadeja was caught by wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant, after which the third umpire Paul Wilson called him out.
While going out of the field after being dismissed, Paine (Tim Paine) also looked disappointed with this decision. Wade compared this to the Australian DRS used against Cheteshwar Pujara on Sunday.
He said, ‘Like what I have seen it is like yesterday’s first ball. Then we used DRS, I think it was against Pujara ‘.
Wade (Matthew Wade) said in an online press conference after the match, “What I saw in both of them showed a similar thing in Snico (sound measuring machine) but one was not dismissed while the other was given”.

He said, ‘I heard the sound of Pujara’s ball hitting the ball. I was in slip at that time. We and you also saw what happened in the field today, in such a situation that either everyone should be given out or not, there should be a commonality in it ‘.
After taking a 1-0 lead in the series, the Australian team is struggling for 133 runs for six wickets in the second innings of the second Test. The team has a two-run lead and four wickets remaining. All-rounder Cameron Green (17 not out) and Pat Cummins (15 not out) are at the crease.
Wade, who scored 40 off 137 balls in the innings, criticized the team’s batsmen, saying, ‘We ourselves are guilty for this situation. The Indian team has been successful in creating pressure since the beginning. He said, ‘We have not done much to make Indian bowlers tired’.
