Cricket: Australia v India: Kohli makes history & ‘spidercam’ controversy

Virat Kohli became the first man to make three Test centuries in his first three innings as captain on an eventful third day of the fourth Test against Australia in Sydney.

Fourth Test, Sydney (day three):
Australia 572-7 dec v India 342-5

He made an unbeaten 140, while Lokesh Rahul, with 110, helped India finish on 342-5, in response to 572-7 declared.

Rahul was dropped on 46 by captain Steve Smith, who blamed television device ‘spidercam’ for the error.

Smith was “distracted by one of the wires in his eyeline”, said Australia.

Spidercam is a camera system which gives viewers a bird’s eye view of the action using cables to carry a camera on wires above the action.

Australia have already secured the series after winning the first two Tests in Adelaide and Brisbane and drawing the third in Melbourne.
