ICC World Cup 2019: Umpiring has faced the heat from Day 1 of the World Cup. Wrong decisions to goof-ups, the fans have seen it all. During the ICC World Cup 2019 game between Australia and Windies, Chris Gayle survived two DRS appeals, before finally getting dismissed. But his dismissal has stirred controversy as the ball before he was dismissed, Mitchell Starc had overstepped. This is one of the most common mistakes made by umpires as they do not check the front-foot, every time. Chasing a challenging 289, Gayle departed for a scratchy 21 off 17 balls. It was Starc who trapped him in front and he was leg-before-wicket.
Here is how Twitter bashed the standards of umpiring:
Fans feel had it been a no-ball, the next ball would have been a free-hit and Gayle would still have been in the middle. At the time of filing the copy, the Windies were looking to get their chase back on track. They were 99/3 in the 20th over.
