WTC Final Day 5 Live: Kohli survives close call as Australia burn DRS call

In a crucial moment during Day 5 of the WTC Final, Virat Kohli was nearing his half-century when he faced a challenging delivery from Boland. The ball was bowled on a good length, angling across the right-hander, and Kohli was tempted into playing a shot.

As the ball passed the outside edge of his bat, fielder Marnus Labuschagne at cover thought he heard something and immediately appealed. The Australian team decided to take the review, hoping for a breakthrough.


The Decision Review System (DRS) was used, and upon closer inspection, it was evident that there was a clear gap between the bat and the ball. UltraEdge confirmed this, showing a flat-line, and Australia lost their review. It was a crucial moment in the match, as Kohli survived the scare and continued his innings.
