Substandard umpiring in fourth T20
In the 20th over of the Indian innings, when Washington Sundar hit the ball of Jofra Archer, the fielder Adil Rashid on the brownie caught the ball. Rashid’s foot was seen touching the rope while holding the ball during the replays, despite this, the TV umpire called Sundar out, because here too the on-field umpire gave a soft signal out.
Kohli rages on umpires
After the match, captain Virat Kohli said, “In such cases, soft signal becomes very important when the matter is close.” Kohli said, ‘There was an incident in Test series when Ajinkya Rahane caught the ball, but he was not completely convinced. I don’t understand why there is no signal like ‘I don’t know’ even for the umpires. It is necessary to do this for the game.
Kohli told Tricky to soft signal
On the controversy surrounding the soft signal, Captain Kohli said, ‘In such big matches you have to understand that some such decisions can have an impact on the outcome of the entire match. Soft signal has become very important and it is quite tricky. Let us know that thanks to the excellent performance of their bowlers, India defeated England by eight runs in the fourth T20 match and won 2–2 in the five-match T20 series. Batting first after losing the toss, India scored 185 runs for eight wickets and then restricted England to 177 for eight in the allotted 20 overs.
