In cricket, umpires often get criticised by fans if the decision doesn’t go in the favour of their team. Recently, Indian umpire Nitin Menon was on the receiving end of some harsh criticism from fans for one of his decisions in the recently-concluded third Test between India and Australia at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. On a lighter note, a hilarious incident from a village league match, involving an umpire, has been doing rounds on social media.
In the video, the umpire was unfazed after bowlers strong appeal for a catch out. While the bowler was adamant that the batter had knicked the ball, the umpire was unmoved.
As the bowler decided to go back to take his run up, the umpire suddenly raised his fingers, giving the batter his marching orders.
