'Bail us out!' Kohli, Finch feel sorry about heavy Zing bails

David Warner saved by Zing bails against India

"Their bowling plans were pretty simple but really effective on a wicket like that", Finch complemented Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah for keeping the Aussies on a tight leash at the start.

South Africa's Quinton de Kock, Sri Lankan Dimuth Karunaratne, West Indian Chris Gayle and Mohammad Saifuddin of Bangladesh have already enjoyed similar luck at this World Cup but several former players felt it was harsh on the bowlers.

However, he took 114 balls to accumulate the runs and only hit eight fours on a ground that has short straight and square boundaries. The ball took the inside edge and rolled onto the leg-stump but the bails remained firm as if telling "hit me hard".

Aaron Finch, who was outright about his statement, said, "It's a bit unfair at times, isn't it! So I don't know what's actually wrong with the stump, the outer coating of the stump", Kohli said.

There have been five instances in the 14 matches of the World Cup so far where the "zing bails", (which contain lights that flash when the ball hit the wicket) have refused to dislodge, despite being hit hard by the ball, and thus, denying the bowlers a hard-earned wicket.

Although India won the match by 36 runs, Warner´s escape could have been a turning point and Kohli made it clear the situation was unacceptable.

"Definitely [needs to be looked at], this is not something which you expect at the worldwide level", said Kohli.

"Yeah, I think so. But you literally have to smash the stumps really hard, and I'm saying that as a batsman", Virat was quoted as saying in the post-match press conference. They are making things tough for the current fast bowlers, as they are hesitating to get out of their grooves. "I haven't seen that happen (as) many times in", the Indian captain continued. 'But no team will like to see that, if you bowl a good ball and you don't get a guy out.

Former Australian cricket vice-captain David Warner at Cape Town International Airport. It does seem to be happening more and more, which is unfortunate, because you'd hate to see something like that happen in a World Cup final or a semifinal. I don't know, and MS (Dhoni) said we checked the stump hole, as well. Is the stump too thick or too rigid?

Social media went into overdrive after video footage showed spinner Adam Zampa putting his hand into his pocket before rubbing the ball prior to bowling the 24th over. Australia kept themselves within touching distance of a mammoth chase until late in their innings.

"It's hard to comment on it until you see the wicket and there haven't been a huge amount of games at Taunton to get a read on what the wicket is going to look like, either", he said. Finch had wanted to bat first because he knew the pitch would slow down, playing into the hands of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav. The sooner they can come with the solution, the better it would be for the game.
