Ben Stokes blames technology over Zak Crawley’s dismissal in 2nd Test against India

 Ben Stokes blames technology over Zak Crawley’s dismissal in 2nd Test against India

Ben Stokes spoke about the DRS issue.

In the ongoing 5-match Test series between India and England, the hosts went on to win the 2nd Test match by 106 runs. England was given a target of 399 runs, which they failed to achieve. India successfully took the revenge of the first match, keeping the series alive, 1-1. Moreover, after the match concluded, Captain Ben Stokes brought up an important issue in the press conference.

While Zak Crawley was batting, he was dismissed by Kuldeep Yadav. As the on-field decision was not out, India went on with the DRS. After checking, the third umpire declared the batter out as the ball was hitting the stumps. However, this sparked a lot of controversy and the England team wasn’t satisfied with the decision.

Stokes, while talking to the press, said, “Technology got it wrong on this occasion”.

Crawley was in marvellous form and felt like England would have won the match while he was batting. However, after he was dismissed, the entire line-up shattered and the team failed to chase 399 runs. As they started the match, it didn’t seem like the target was far away, but their Bazball approach couldn’t save them this time. However, as the series is level now, the upcoming matches will be fun to watch.
