After Pant denied four runs for a blunder committed by the umpire, netizens fumed at the International Cricket Council by saying that the rules structured by them are flawed and biased. Amidst the heated discussions over the umpire’s call in DRS and the soft signal, a baffling rule in the sport agitated the fans across the country.

In the second ODI between India and England, Rishab pant smashed a 40 ball 77 and helped team India to reach a massive total of 337 at the end of 50 overs. However, Pant’s score should have been 81 off 40 balls, felt the fans of team India as a boundary that went off his bat was denied due to a wrong decision made by the straight umpire.

In the last ball of 40th over which was bowled by Tom Curran, Rishab Pant who was hitting the ball cleanly was on strike. The left hand batsman attempted his favourite shot of reverse lap which he successfully executed against Jofra Archer and James Anderson in T20 and Test series respectively. However, he misjudged the ball and it edged the wrong side of his bat and went for four.

In real time, it looked like the ball was hitting his pad and sneaked past the leg stump for four. When Tom appealed for an LBW to the umpire, the latter gave it an out and Pant went for DRS immediately. In TV replay, it was confirmed that Pant has edged the ball with his bat and he survived.

Though Pant stayed in the crease, the four that went off his bat was denied as the rules were designed in such way. It is said that the ball becomes dead as soon as the on field umpire gives out, no matter what happens later irrespective of the final DRS result.

The confusing rule caused Pant and team India a valuable four runs which could make a big impact in the result of the game. Netizens who felt the same started slamming the umpire and ICC for designing such a rule.
