West Indies were successful in chasing down India’s 288-run target in the first ODI between the two teams on Sunday. However, the match was not without its fair share of on-field drama. All hell broke loose during the 48th over of the Indian innings when Ravindra Jadeja was adjudged 'run out' in a controversial manner. Batting first, Team India recovered with crucial fifties from Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer after early setbacks.

Kedar Jadhav and Ravindra Jadeja then joined forces to stretch India’s total by batting through their allotted overs. Later, Jadhav mistimed one to hole out at long-on with India at 269-6 in 47.3 overs. Just one ball after their partnership was broken, Jadeja jammed one to midwicket to take a quick single. The drama unfolded when replays suggested that the left-hander was found short of the crease.

Ind vs WI: Aakash Chopra on Kieron Pollard’s 'brainfade' moment

The umpire did not go upstairs at first but upon seeing the replay, West Indies players decided to appeal. Asking an on-field umpire to go upstairs after checking the replays left the Indian captain Virat Kohli fuming. Indian commentator Aakash Chopra immediately took to Twitter to address the incident and compared it with the infamous 'brainfade' moment in 2017 featuring ex-Australia captain Steve Smith in a Test match in Bengaluru.

In 2017, Smith was accused of taking help from the dressing room to opt for the Decision Review System (DRS) on his dismissal. He later admitted to having looked for assistance and later apologised for the same. Regarding the dismissal of Ravindra Jadeja, West Indies captain Kieron Pollard was adamant about the fact that the right decision was made.
