ICC World Cup 2019: Virender Sehwag, Dhanush and others slam umpiring howler in WI vs AUS match

Chris Gayle lost his wicket on a controversial delivery during West Indies’ World Cup 2019 match against Australia at the Trent Bridge, Nottingham, on Thursday.

Both cricket experts and fans slammed Ruchira Palliyaguruge and Chris Gaffaney for their poor umpiring on the field, with West Indies bowling legend Michael Holding calling the umpiring “atrocious”. Later, skipper Jason Holder also had to suffer from a similar umpiring howler.

In fact, West Indies failed to chase 289 and suffered a 15-run defeat to Australia.

Gaffaney raised his finger twice in three balls to give Gayle “out” while Palliyaguruge’s decision was two-times over-ruled by DRS against Holder.

Here’s how Virender Sehwag, Dhanush and others reacted on Twitter:
