In the 19th over, Kohli got hit on the pads by Brevis‘s first ball. The on-field umpire raised his finger and gave Kohli out, but the former India skipper opted for DRS (Decision Review System), which showed that there was a slight deflection as the ball passed the bat before hitting Kohli’s pads. Surprisingly, third umpire Ulhas Gandhe didn’t overturn on-field umpire’s decision and a furious Kohli left the field.
Kohli smashed his bat on the ground while walking back to the pavillion. Twitterati went berserk after Kohli’s outburst.
Virat Kohli was absolutely unhappy with that decision. https://t.co/eMp8Nybg48

Former India Test cricketer Aakash Chopra also expresses surprise over umpire’s decision.
In the case of ball hitting the bat and pad at the same time…it’s considered bat first. As far as I know. Let’s check the laws…
