Former India cricketer-turned commentator Aakash Chopra exposed another loophole in the Decision Review System during the second ODI between India and England in Pune. What happened was, India batter Rishabh Pant was denied a boundary as he opted for DRS when the Umpire gave him out as the ball had hit his pads. Now, interestingly the ball had touched his bat and raced towards the boundary. But Pant was never given the boundary and the ball was considered dead as Pant was given out in the first place.
According to the MCC laws, the ball becomes dead “when a batsman is dismissed. The ball will be deemed to be dead from the instant of the incident causing the dismissal.”
