Okay this post ain’t by me. I read it somewhere and it’s exactly what i think. So i decided to share it.
So another post by a crazy cricket fan.
Actually more of a ramble.
Now tell me something, what’s the point of having a new rule, if the umpires are going to be too scared to enforce it? Are they just doing it for the show? Are they just doing it to confuse the cricketers? To confuse the viewers?
Now something controversial happened between Aus. Vs Ind one-day match, 26/02/12.
There is a new rule, Batsman obstructing the field. That’s pretty much that if a batsman is found blocking a ball from reaching the wicket keeper, or a potential run-out from happening, the captain can appeal for an out. And it’s meant to be an out. David Hussey, blocked off the ball with his glove – note. His freaking hand!!
And Dhoni naturally appealed for an out.
It was an out.
The crowd thought so.
The umpires thought so.
Heck even David Hussey had that stupid expression on his face which said, “shit I am out”.
But the stupid, stupid, stupid Third Umpire, was an absolute pussy. And decided to not give Hussey an out because of stupid, stupid “team spirit”.
How about when India is batting, you don’t give Sachin an out? Because c’mon, team spirit is amazing, right Umpire?
Stupid Third Umpire.
