Controversy: The credibility of the Indian Umpires is in doubt in IPL!
The Indian Premier League has started to encourage the Indian players to bring the most talented to the limelight. They also took the innovation that only Indian Umpires can perform Umpiring in all the Indian Premier League matches. But with the last match’s incident, the quality and the standards of the Indian Umpires are in questionnaires now.
Malinga bowled a no-ball for the final delivery but it went unnoticed by the umpire S Ravi last night. As it is a nail biter, it has lead to many controversies and debates on the standards of the Indian Umpires. Not only the final delivery but also in the previous over, Bumrah’s legal delivery was called as a wide. In this type of close games, these kinds of decisions can change the complexion of the game.
In cricket, umpires are provided with certain freedom and rights to express their decisions taking some time efficient use of DRS is undercards with the 'Umpire’s call' and even to overturn the decision of the on-field umpire’s call, the third umpire must have the conclusive evidence. But compared to other countries' umpires, Indian umpires are failing to make the most of them. They are repeating the same mistakes with insane calls and wrong decisions. Let’s see how BCCI responds on this issue now.
