Who is Nitin Menon? Whose decision on Virat Kohli has created an uproar

New Delhi: A big ruckus broke out in the second match of the Border-Gavaskar Test series being played between India and Australia. Actually this ruckus happened due to the decision of umpire Nitin Menon when he declared India’s legendary batsman Virat Kohli LBW out. However, later when checked in the snickometer, this ball was touching both Virat’s pad and bat. However, the third umpire could not decide whether the ball hit the pad first or the bat. In such a situation, Virat Kohli got out because of Nitin Menon’s decision because he had signaled Kohli out on the field seeing the wicket in front of him.
