Kohli and Finch are not happy with bails: Details here

The ICC World Cup 2019 has seen its first major controversy in the form of the bails, which don't want to fall.

There have been several instances so far where the bails have refused to fall off, awarding the batsmen a lifeline.

A fresh incident happened on Sunday, when David Warner survived the onslaught against India.

Meanwhile, the two captains have expressed their disappointment.

Kohli's take

It shouldn't be tolerated: Kohli

It shouldn't be tolerated: Kohli

Following the match, Kohli said that it is something that shouldn't be tolerated in international cricket.

While he praised the 'zing' bails, he said in order to make these bails fall, the stumps have to be hit really hard.

"If I see something happening like that, I'd be very surprised, also. And these are fast bowlers. These are not your medium-paced bowlers," said Kohli.

Don't know what's actually wrong with the stump

"I don't know, and MS (Dhoni) said we checked the stump hole, as well. The stump was not in very hard, it was actually loose. So I don't know what's actually wrong with the stump, the outer coating of the stump," added Kohli.

Sympathy

Kohli understands the frustration of bowlers

Kohli also expressed his sympathy for the bowlers, saying that no team would want to see a good delivery not being able to dismiss the batsman.

"The ball hits the stump and the lights don't come on, or the lights come on and the bail comes back on to the stump. I haven't seen that happen so many times in the past," Kohli opined.

Unfair

Finch also believes it is unfair

Finch also believes it is unfair

Australian captain Aaron Finch also believes that it is unfair for the bowler.

He also added that teams would hate to see such an incident happening in the semis or the final of the tournament.

"All I know is that bails should be lighter, so that when I hit the stumps, it comes off," he joked.

Author's take

Lighter bails along with rule change needed

The author believes using lighter bails is definitely a solution, as there is no weight limit on the bails.

However, making lighter zing bails would be a task at hand. We believe that changing the rule would make the job easier, as a simple touch should be enough to dismiss a batsman.

In any case, the ICC needs to find a solution.
