New Delhi: Former Sri Lanka cricketer-turned umpire Kumar Dharmasena has enjoyed success, both a cricketer and an umpire but the recent times hasn't got down well in his professional career.

Dharmasena is on the ICC’s Elite panel of umpires but has endured a difficult time while officiating during the recent games.

The Sri Lankan had repeated incidents for taking wrong decisions, be it the Bangladesh-England series or the India-England series.

Now 45-year-old has again gone into trouble for the same reason in the ongoing Australia-New Zealand series.

Dharmasena's decision to give Steve Smith out was overturned using DRS and Virender Sehwag couldn't resist taking a dig at the Sri Lankan umpire.

"Bas itte Se reh gaya,Smith ko sahi decision dene Se. After grand success in India&Bangladesh, #DharmasenaReviewSystem now in Australia too," tweeted Viru.

HotSpot confirmed that there the ball didn't touch the bat and the decision gets overturned.

The outcome, #DharmasenaReviewSystem started trending on Twitter and people couldn't stop poking fun on the matter.
