After a heartbreaking defeat of India against New Zealand, a video tweeted by the Indian fans has been going viral on the legality of the ball where Dhoni got run-out.
The picture and the video which was tweeted shows a small graphic where 6 New Zealand players were standing outside the ring. According to ICC rules, only 5 fielders should be out of the 30-yard circle in the 3rd power play.
Indian fans have busted out on the umpiring skills put forward by the ICC. This was not for the first time umpires made neglect on the no-ball which would have changed the complete match strategy.
If the umpires would have made a proper decision Dhoni would have a no-ball and India would have been in a different phase.
“Dhoni started his career with a Run-OUT and May end his career with a Run-OUT TOOOO.”
All the Indian fans were out of their minds after looking into this video of a no-ball for Dhoni instead of run-out.
Twitterati’s all around globe slam the umpires. If the umpires would have seen it as a no-ball then Dhoni would have got a free hit.
Here are a few tweets.
@bhogleharsha cleary martin guptil came running form the boundary …. it was a no ball… that part of the field had no fielders inside 30 yard… so 6 fielding outside 30 yards… #umpiring was #hopeless this #ICCCricketWorldCup2019

Another evidence of poor #umpiring in the #CWC19
6 fielders outside 30 yards goes unnoticed at one of the crunch moments of #IndVsNewZealand
Would have been deciding.
