Virat Kohli scored his first century in the ongoing Test series against Australia, sixth Down Under, as India scored 283 in reply to the hosts’ first innings total of 326 in the second Test in Perth on Sunday. The Indian captain made 123 runs off 257 balls before he was given out by the on-field umpire. Fast Bowler Jasprit Bumrah, who claimed three wickets in the match, said the visitors were “surprised” at the on-field umpire’s call that led to Virat Kohli’s dismissal.Kohli’s dismissal triggered a controversy after Peter Handscomb took the catch at second slip off Pat Cummins’ bowling and on-field umpires deferred to the third umpire with a soft signal of out, meaning only conclusive evidence could overturn the decision.However, TV replays were not sufficient enough to overturn the decision, which left the Indian fans and Kohli disappointed as the skipper walked off the ground without acknowledging the ovation for his superb innings of 123.”We were a little surprised by the on-field call but now that it’s been done means it’s been done. We will move forward with the game. That’s about it,” said Bumrah when asked about the controversial decision..(With PTI inputs)
