IND vs ENG: Was Zak Crawley not out? Technology expert claims DRS error

A DRS expert has claimed that the technology made a rare error in Zak Crawley's LBW call in the second innings of IND vs ENG 3rd Test.

The controversy around England opener Zak Crawley’s LBW dismissal has taken a new turn after a DRS expert claimed that the technology made a rare error in the second innings of IND vs ENG 3rd Test.

England’s collapse in the second innings of the Rajkot Test began with the big wicket of Crawley.

The English opener was trapped LBW off Jasprit Bumrah’s delivery. The on-field umpire gave the batter out but Crawley immediately sent the decision upstairs.

During the replay, the DRS showed that the delivery was just missing the leg stump. However, DRS indicated the umpire’s call which led to Crawley’s departure.

Now, a DRS expert has confirmed to inews.co.uk that the technology made an error in the decision making and it should not have been an umpire’s call.

The expert claimed that image shown during Crawley’s lbw review was indeed wrong and was the result of a malfunction in the generation of the graphic that meant there was a marginal difference between what was shown on TV and the path of the delivery predicted by the ball- tracking software.

Earlier, England Test skipper Ben Stokes also questioned the DRS call and demanded the scrapping of umpire’s call.

“We just wanted some clarity around Zak’s DRS when the images came back,” Stokes told talkSPORT.

“We just wanted some clarity from Hawk-Eye. It came back saying the numbers were saying that it was hitting the stumps but it was the projection that was wrong. I don’t know what that means. Something’s gone wrong”, the England skipper further added.
