Reflecting on the poor final decision from the on-field umpire, the stance was then briefly discussed by the commentators. Particularly, the present on-field umpire declared Rizwan out without learning the circumstances, while the third umpire backing the naive decision. However, it was at that point when the cricketing legends and the Pakistani internet warriors pointed out the issue.
Cricketing legends and commentators shocked on the no-ball controversy!
Before Mohammad Rizwan accepted the wrong decision, Pakistan was finally stabling their chances to give a heavy target. While Australia’s Pat Cummins delivered the no-ball, Tim Paine caught Mohammad Rizwan behind the stumps. Soon after the controversial wicket was taken, the cricketing legends were in whammy while commentating on the match.
When Mohammad Rizwan came to bat, Pakistan had just started settling after losing 5 wickets at a total of 95 runs. Later, the commentating panel and other cricketing idols questioned the decision of the on-field umpire’s final verdict. Regarding the matter, former Australian Test Captain Allan Border stated, “I’m trying to find something behind the line there but I just can’t”.
Twitteratis noticed the unusual occurrence and reacted to it!
Responsively, cricketing legends Ricky Ponting, Brett Lee and Jason Gillispie supported Border’s concerns. Legend Ricky Ponting after praising Babar Azam previously wasn’t happy on the on-field umpire’s decision. The unexpected occurrence not only baffled the game lords but Pakistani fans also noticed the unusual wicket and showed their anger on social media.
Indeed, it is one of the most controversial out!
