Watch: Kjorn Ottley Rues Not Taking The DRS In 3rd ODI Against Australia

West Indies opener Kjorn Ottley made a huge mistake as he denied taking the DRS that could have helped him save his wicket in the third ODI against Australia.

West Indies who were sent into bat first are reeling after losing their top three wickets inside the first 12 overs of the match in Canberra. Otlley was dismissed by Xavier Bartlett who is making a comeback in this game.

Bartlett picked up four wickets in the game and missed the second ODI through injury. In the 11th over of the Windies innings, Bartlett bowled a full delivery that swung after pitching and took the edge of Ottley’s bat before thudding into his pads. The bower appealed and umpire Sharfuddoula ruled the decision in the bowlers’ favour.

The replays, however, showed that Kjorn Ottley edged the ball but he failed to understand. He walked as soon as the umpire gave him out not knowing that he had edged the delivery. He was the first West Indies wicket to fall as the Australians capitalised and took two more including the wicket of skipper Shai Hope (4) in the 12th over.

Australia won the first ODI by 8 wickets and the second by 83 runs seent the Windies into bat after winning the toss and have controlled the game so far. Steve Smith is leading the side in the absence of Pat Cummins. Mitchell Starc is also not a part of the side as the duo have been rested from this series including the T20I series.

“Not sure how the wicket is going to play. It might get better under lights. That’s pretty much the reason. Two changes. Short is out with a hamstring and Hazlewood didn’t make the trip. Bartlett and Lance Morris are back in,” said Steve Smith the Australian skipper after winning the toss and opting to field first.

“We would have batted. There’s some weather around but we should just play our cricket rather than focus on the weather. Good signs have been shown but the batting is letting us down. One change, Greaves is struggling a bit with his hamstring so Teddy Bishop is making his debut,” said Windies skipper Shai Hope after losing the toss.
