Windies’ Boxing Day woes extend to DRS

Mark Taylor has lashed West Indies opener Rajendra Chandrika for wasting a review on the second day of the Boxing Day Test.

Chandrika and Kraigg Brathwaite started reasonably well by their standards – a 35-run stand equalled the side’s highest opening partnership this year.

Nathan Lyon broke the stand by removing Brathwaite.

But it was Chandrika’s dismissal that showcased yet another aspect of the inexperienced tourists’ troubles.

Chandrika was trapped lbw by James Pattinson when he shouldered arms to a delivery that would have crashed in to middle stump.

Taylor couldn’t believe the 26-year-old, playing his third Test, then opted to review the verdict.

“That’s just absolutely wasting the review,” the former Australia skipper said on the Nine Network.

“It’s almost worth a fine it’s that bad. Why would you review that?

“That ball has to be clearly missing the stumps for that to be overturned.

“I’m not too sure what Chandrika was thinking … that’s out every day of the week.”

Taylor added it was two poor errors of judgment.

“You’re not playing a shot then you’re reviewing it,” he said.

The Decision Review System (DRS) provided further frustration for the visitors on day two at the MCG.

It had nothing to do with the technology or the umpires’ application, rather their own inability to properly use the system.

In Pattinson’s next over after Chandrika’s dismissal, flat-footed veteran Marlon Samuels was trapped lbw by Pattinson for a duck.

However, on this occasion ball-tracking technology suggested the Kookaburra would have gone over the stumps.

Samuels didn’t review the verdict.

“That’s the problem when you waste one,” Taylor said.

“You have a frivolous review followed by Marlon Samuels not reviewing it.”

A similar incident happened in the first Test at Hobart, where Jason Holder would have stayed at the crease if he reviewed his lbw dismissal.

The skipper instead shuffled off after a brief discussion with Darren Bravo.

It was easy to forget DRS was in use during Australia’s first innings, such was the dominance they exhibited in a total of 3(dec)-551.

Holder’s first, only and very optimistic lbw review came when Adam Voges was on 74 and the hosts were 3-473.

Ball-tracking replays confirmed the ball would have missed the stumps.
