Umpiring blunder continues. Today it was Chris Gayle who lost his wicket just after a huge huge no-ball. Gayle who scored 17 off 21 and scored 4 boundaries was looking in good touch but lost his wicket to a ball which should be a free-hit.
Australia won the match by just 15 runs. If umpires were up to the mark the result could be in favour of West Indies.
Previously Chris Gayle was judged out twice in the 3rd over of West Indies inning and he survived both of them. But, he wasn’t the third time lucky due to poor umpiring in the game.
How on earth this is not a No-Ball.
Hey @ICC , when you are done caring what symbol a cricketer wears on his glove , do take out time to keep a check on your umpires , they are making a mockery of the world cup. This is absolutely unacceptable at this level. #AUSvWI pic.twitter.com/L4YYAAR0zF

“The umpiring level in this match has been atrocious. They are getting intimidated by constant appealing by the (Australian) team,” Legendary Windies cricketer Michael Holding said who was commentating.
Umpiring this World Cup is not to the mark and a serious concern for the teams as well. If the blunder goes on, this can even affect the place in a semi-final.
4 overturned reviews so far shows how the umpiring has been. Far too many mistakes. Very poor.
And this is a World Cup. #AUSvWI

No-balls being missed by on-field umpires. It’s about time the 3rd umpire intervened and told the on-field umpires it was a no-ball. The technology is there – use it #AUSvWI

West Indies doing a great job facing 13 Australians on the field. More power to you. #AUSvWI
