In the fourth T20 match against England, two players of the Indian team, Suryakumar Yadav and Washington Sundar, were controversially dismissed. Both decisions were made by the Third Umpire. Following this decision, Indian cricketers have questioned the rules of the ICC. The third umpire in this match was Virendra Sharma. Who made such decisions. In the first innings, Suryakumar Yadav was given a controversial decision to catch out, then in the last over of the innings, Washington Sundar’s decision to catch out was also shocking.
In the first innings, England bowler Joffra Archer was bowling in the 20th over. On the fourth ball of the over, Adil Rashid hit a superb six off a beautiful Archer’s ball and his catch was picked up by Adil Rashid, who was fielding on the boundary. Was and he took the catch fast. At the time of this catch, it seemed that Rashid’s foot was touching the boundary. The third umpire saw that first his foot was touching the boundary but when the ball came in his hand his foot was not touching the boundary and then Sundar was given out by the third umpire.
Following the umpire’s poor decision, former cricketer Virender Sehwag tweeted a question about the third umpire’s decision.
VVS Laxman also said that this was a wrong decision. VVS Laxman tweeted, How was he out? How can you go with the soft decision of the field umpire when you are not sure whether you have caught even after top class technology? I think there is a need to change this rule or even think about this rule.
Let me tell you that in this fourth match, India scored 185 runs for the loss of 8 wickets in 20 overs against England. From India, Suryakumar Yadav played an innings of 57 runs. While Rishabh Pant scored 30 runs, Shreyas Aiyar also batted brilliantly and scored 37 off 18 balls. Joffra Archer was 4 wickets faster with 33 runs in 4 overs.
