In the fourth T20 match against England, two players of the Indian team Suryakumar Yadav and Washington Sundar were controversially dismissed. Both these decisions were taken by the third umpire and after that many Indian cricketers questioned the ICC rules. In this match, the third umpire was Virender Sharma who made the decisions in this way. First, a controversial decision was taken on the catch out of Suryakumar Yadav in the first innings, while thereafter, the decision of Washington Sundar’s catch out on the fourth ball of the 20th over of the same innings was also shocking.
England’s bowler Joffra Archer was throwing the 20th opener in the first innings. On the fourth ball of this over, Sundar hit a brilliant six off Archer and his catch was caught by Adil Rashid fielding at the boundary. It was a short ball and Sundar put an upper cut on it and the ball went into the hands of Rashid, who was fielding at the straight third man position and he took an easy catch.
At the time of the catch, it seemed that the back of his right leg was touching the boundary. The third umpire noticed that at first his leg was touching the boundary, but when the ball came into his hands, part of his leg was not touching the boundary and then Sundar was dismissed by the third umpire. However, it was not completely clear what had happened, as nothing was clear. Let us tell you that in the fourth match, India scored 185 runs for 8 wickets in 20 overs against England. For India, Suryakumar Yadav played the biggest innings of 57 runs while Rishabh Pant scored 30 and Shreyas Iyer scored 37 runs from 18 balls. Joffra Archer, bowling brilliantly, took 4 wickets for 33 runs in 4 overs.
