New Delhi: MS Dhoni-led Indian cricket team, who are yet to defeat South Africa in their ongoing long tour, have lodged a complaint against umpire Vineet Kulkarni for poor decision making throughout the series so far.
According to a report in The Hindu, the Men in Blue have cited four decisions, all leg-before shouts from the ongoing series against South Africa, to make their point.
In the first T20 match at Dharamsala, according to Team India, Kulkarni, let off JP Duminy twice and also made an error while judging Shikhar Dhawan leg-before in the first ODI at Kanpur.
It also did not appreciate Faf du Plessis surviving first ball from R Ashwin early in the match.
“We did not have quite a few decisions going our way and sometimes these can change the match. It could have been different if we could have got Duminy out early,” Dhoni had said after losing the first T20.
After losing the T20 series 2-0, South Africa now have a 1-0 lead in the five-match ODI series.
The second ODI is scheduled to be played at Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore on October 14.
