New Delhi: Sri Lanka defeated India by 4 wickets in the second T20 of the three-match series between India and Sri Lanka. With this win, Sri Lanka have leveled the series 1-1. It was a very exciting match in which Sri Lanka won in the end. But a big reason for India’s defeat in this match was also a mistake of the umpire.
Big mistake made by umpire
Actually, in the last over of this match, the on-field umpire gave a ball wide, after which there is a lot of controversy on social media. Let us inform that Sri Lanka got two runs off a wide ball given by the umpire in Chetan Sakaria’s over and from there the match was out of India’s grip. People are giving their feedback fiercely on this matter on social media.
