Umpires discriminated against Team India
In this test match, apart from cricket, the game of sledding was also being played on the ground. On the fifth day of the Test match, England fast bowlers Mark Wood and James Anderson were attacking Jasprit Bumrah’s body with dangerous bouncer balls. Bumrah hit the ball twice on the head. After this, England wicketkeeper Jos Buttler was also calling Jasprit Bumrah good and bad.
Then Bumrah-Shami showed fierce form
When Indian player Mohammed Shami, who was batting with Bumrah, complained to the on-field umpire Richard Illingworth about the players of England, the umpire took the side of the English players and pointed to Shami to seal his mouth. That talk of British players and umpire Richard Illingworth was so prickly for the Indian players that they showed their fierce form on the field. Richard Illingworth and Michael Gough, both the umpires who officiated in this match, are from England. The ICC has chosen only the umpires of England in this entire Test series between India and England.
