Virat Kohli claims that tournament can get hampered by zing bails

  • David Warner looks back as the ball touches his stumps but does not dislodge the bails during at The Oval

The southpaw was on one when he inside-edged a Jasprit Bumrah delivery on to his leg stump but much to his delight the bails did not come off.

The light-up stumps are preferred by administrators as they help umpire the exact moment when a bail gets dislodged, especially during a close run-out or while judging stumping decisions.

South Africa's Quinton de Kock, Sri Lankan Dimuth Karunaratne, West Indian Chris Gayle and Mohammad Saifuddin of Bangladesh have already had the rub of the green. Warner went on to make 56 but Australia lost by 36 runs. The stump was not in very hard, it was actually loose. "I haven't seen that happen so many times in the past", the skipper said. "So I don't know what's actually wrong with the stump, the outer coating of the stump", the skipper said.

There have been five instances in the 14 matches of the World Cup so far where the "zing bails", (which contain lights that flash when the ball hit the wicket) have refused to dislodge, despite being hit hard by the ball, and thus, denying the bowlers a hard-earned wicket. He top-scored with 68 but England won by 104 runs.

"Definitely. I mean, this is not something which you expect at the worldwide level".

"I think the technology is great... when the lights come on and it is very precise when you actually make something happen".

"These are fast bowlers, these are not medium-pace bowlers".

A view of 787 7th midtown Manhattan where a helicopter was reported to have crashed in New York City on June 10, 2019. Linden airport director Paul Dudley described McCormack as "a highly seasoned" and "very well regarded" pilot.

He added, "If you bowl a good ball to get someone out and if the batsman still survives then what is the point?"

"MS said he checked the stump holes, but the stump was not knocked in very hard".

Steve Smith and David Warner, key protagonists in the Cape Town scandal, served one-year bans, only returning to worldwide cricket at the World Cup.

"But it does seem to be happening more and more, which is unfortunate, because you'd hate to see something like that happen in a World Cup final or a've done the hard work as a bowler or a fielding side to set a player up or get the mistake and it not be rewarded", Finch spoke about his apprehensions. I have no idea what's going on due to the lights coming on, if the stump is too thick or too rigid.

Finch had to defuse another potential controversy after Australia spinner Adam Zampa faced allegations of ball- tampering.

"I haven't seen that happen so many times in the past", Kohli told reporters at a briefing.

Warner was on 1 in the second over of Australia's chase when he got lucky. "To have them guys batting deep into the innings, that just gives them so many options where they can shuffle [Hardik] Pandya up the order and [MS] Dhoni, so yeah, I think they played it really well, and probably negated our biggest threats early on". I know for a fact he has hand warmers in his pocket. The sooner they can come with the solution, the better it would be for the game.
