Former Cricketers, Celebs & Fans Slam 3rd Umpire For Blunder In Suryakumar Yadav’s Dismissal


Former Cricketers, Celebs & Fans Slam 3rd Umpire For Blunder In Suryakumar Yadav’s Dismissal

The fifth and final match of the ongoing T20 series between India and England will be an important one as the winner of this match will be the winner of the series as well. The series stands leveled at 2-2 after India won the fourth T20I match which was played yesterday at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.

The toss was won by the visitors and they decided to bowl first; though the Indian openers Rohit Sharma (12) and KL Rahul (14) got dismissed early, it was Suryakumar Yadav who grabbed everybody’s attention by playing a beautiful knock of 57 for which he faced only 31 deliveries and his innings included 6 fours and 3 sixes. Though this was the second match of Suryakumar Yadav at the international level, it was the first time he got the chance to bat and he used this opportunity to the maximum. Suryakumar Yadav is a famous name in the domestic circuit and in the IPL too as he has played some really good innings. With a wonderful track record, he had been knocking on the doors of the national selectors for a long time now.

Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan made their debut together in the series but in that match, the former was not able to bat and then he was dropped for the next match in order to make space for Hitman Rohit Sharma. However, luck was in the favour of Suryakumar Yadav as he was once again included in the playing eleven as Ishan Kishan got injured and SKY ensured that he didn’t let go this opportunity.

Suryakumar Yadav was adjudged as the player of the match for his beautiful innings but his dismissal created a controversy. Suryakumar Yadav took aerial route on the bowling of Sam Curran and he was declared caught out by Dawid Malan but in the replays, it can be seen easily that the ball was touching the ground and this mistake happened despite the fact that the decision went to the third umpire.

Many former cricketers and cricket fans took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and slammed the third umpire for the mistake. Here are some of the selected reactions:
