Kolkata. There was chaos in the Indian Premier League match played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday. Many questions are being raised regarding the full toss on which Virat Kohli was given out. KKR wicketkeeper Phil Salt also expressed his views on this matter and called it good for the team. He said that against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), his team was lucky that the decision of Virat Kohli's wicket was in their favour.

KKR defeated RCB by one run in this exciting match. Chasing the target, Kohli scored 18 runs in seven balls and was caught by the bowler on Harshit Rana's full toss ball in the third over. His team lost the match by one run while chasing 223 runs to win. The 'Hawk-Eye System' which measures the height of no-balls is implemented in the Indian Premier League. Under this, no ball is decided by estimating the height of the ball from the height of the batsman's waist in the crease.

“There may be differing opinions on this decision,” Salt said on the sidelines of the Knights Golf event. From our point of view, we were lucky that the decision was in our favor.

This England batsman said that taking advantage of technology in this way is beneficial for the game. He said, “They used statistics to detect no balls. It is possible that the usefulness of this technology may be discussed after 12 months. It remains to be seen how effective this is. This is a new thing in this game. From an individual player's point of view, whenever you are using statistics and technology to be more accurate and make the right decisions, it is a good thing for the game.

Kohli was out of the crease while playing the shot and the ball was above his waist but it was coming downwards. TV umpire Michael Gough checked the height and according to Hawk-Eye tracking, if Kohli had been in the crease, the ball would have passed at a height of 0.92 meters near the waist. In this situation the ball would have been below Kohli's waist height (1.04 metres). In such a situation, Gough found the height of the ball to be below Kohli's waist height on the ball tracking scale and declared him out.
