Afridi Wrongly Given Out, Asks for Review in a T20 Match? (Video)
Today, Pakistan is playing against Bangladesh in the only T20 match of the tour and Shahid Afridi is leading the green team. What Afridi had done to Bangladesh last year is still haunting them as the cricket aficionados witnessed in today’s match the most pathetic and biased commentary by the Bangladeshis and even worst Umpiring in the ground.
When Afridi was playing on 12 runs, he was wrongly given OUT by the umpire & when he tried to suggest umpire about asking the “third umpire” the commentators were like, “Asking if he can take a review…” whereas the other one quipped, “Can you believe that? Captain of Pakistani team doesn’t know(that there is no review in T20 matches)”
Our Pakistani media didn’t left behind & started running breaking news like “Boom Boom doesn’t know the rules of T20 Cricket”. About time, our Media need to show some responsibility and stop sensationalizing things. Also to the commentators, should not put words in the mouth of players. He was only suggesting Umpire to open his eyes & ask “third umpire” may be. Later, when the replay was shown, it was clearly evident that the ball hadn’t touched either the bat or his hand.
Watch now yourself the new low in the cricketing standards happened in Bangladesh:
