India successfully won the first T20 international match against Australia by 11 runs difference. As soon as the team registered their win, controversy started surfacing about India’s decision of bringing Yuzvendra Chahal as the replacement for Ravindra Jadeja who got hit by the ball on his head while batting. Australian head coach Justin Langer visibly frustrated over the incident. Apart from getting hit on the head, Jadeja had also picked hamstring injury during his knock of 44 runs of 23 balls.

“Ravindra Jadeja was hit on the helmet in the final over of the first innings of the first T20I. Yuzvendra Chahal will take the field in the 2nd innings as a concussion substitute. Jadeja is currently being assessed by the BCCI Medical Team” read the official statement of BCCI.

This decision of team India didn’t go well with the Australian camp as Australian coach Justin Langer had an animated conversation with the match referee David Boon. He shook his head heavily expressing his disappointment over the matter, video of which went viral across the social media platforms.

Adding fuel to his frustration, Chahal picked 3 important wickets with an economy of just 6 runs and clinched the Man of the match award as well. Jadeja’s contribution helped team India to reach the decent total of 161 runs whereas his replacement Chahal’s contribution in bowling played a crucial role.

On seeing the match, former captain of England Michael Vaughan, posted a tweet in his official twitter account calling out Team India for pulling the concussion replacement. He said that no doctor or physio came to test Jadeja in his tweet. “No Doctor or Physio came out to Test Jadeja for concussion … he then looks like his has done something to his leg … then they pull the concussion replacement .. !!!!! #RatSniffed #OnOn #AUSvIND” his tweet read.

He got slammed by the fans of Indian cricket team who pointed out that match referee who belongs to Australia himself agreed to the concussion replacement and questioned Michael what irks him. “Team who win world cup 2019 by manipulating rules n umpiring ..Giving gyan here” trolled a follower.
