But it will be used this time during the opening Test match between India and New Zealand for diverse viewing experience.
When Kohli was asked about his viewpoint, he said when it interrupts the game, it’s never a “nice feeling”.
“It’s something which has been added for the entertainment of the people. It is for people to get different view and perspective about the game, how the game is seen or looked at from different positions from the ground. That’s one thing which is achieved through the spider-cam. “Everything you do or introduce will have flaws and they need to be corrected and made sure that spider-cam doesn’t come into the guidelines of the game, or becomes too interactive and starts interrupting the field of play. That’s not logical,” Kohli said.
During the fifth One-day against Australia in Sydney early this year, India were chasing a huge 331-run target, when Kohli’s uppercut off John Hastings had hit the Spider Cam en route to the boundary ropes and the umpire had declared the ball dead.
Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni had expressed his displeasure at the incident after India successfully chased the mammoth target. He had made it clear that he was not a big fan of such interruptions where one stroke can change the course of a tense match.
