‘Bichara so gaya hoga bichme’ – Umpire’s hilariously late decision leaves players and fans in stitches: WATCH

If the outcome doesn’t favor their team, cricket fans often criticize the umpires. Fans have recently been very critical of Indian umpire Nitin Menon for one of his judgments during the just-finished third Test match between India and Australia at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. On a lighter note, a comical umpire-related event from a village league game has been making the rounds on social media.

The bowler made a loud demand for a catch out, but the umpire seems unimpressed in the video. The umpire was unconvinced despite the bowler’s strong claim that the batter has nicked the ball. The umpire suddenly raised his fingers and told the batter to take a run-up as the bowler made the decision to return.

The track was handed three demerit points: Chris Broad

India defeated Australia by nine wickets in the third Test, narrowing the four-Test series lead to 1-2. Australia has easily led to the finish line by Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne thanks to their ability to maintain composure on the ferociously spinning Indore pitch.

Australia won the third Test in the first session of Day 3. The Kangaroos won the match in the 19th over with nine wickets in hand. Australia’s veteran off-spinner Nathan Lyon was awarded the Player of the Match award for his brilliant performance with the ball in both innings. He bagged a total of 11 wickets in the match.

After 30 wickets were lost in the first two days of play, with Day 1 showing an incredible 4.8 degrees of turn, the Indore pitch sparked some controversy. Australia managed to keep the series alive after losing the first two Tests, and the game was eventually over in seven sessions.

“The pitch, which was very dry, did not provide a balance between bat and ball, favouring spinners from the start as the track was handed three demerit points,” Cricket Governing Body’s Match Refree Chris Broad, was quoted as saying during his assessment of the pitch on Saturday, February 4.
