Twitter erupts as umpire failed to pick a massive no-ball before Gayle’s dismissal

Windies batsman Chris Gayle was given out in a ball that should have been a free hit as the umpire failed to pick a massive no-ball of Mitchell Starc.

Umpire failed on a massive no ball

At the moment Australia and Windies are playing their second game of their World Cup campaign. Australia batted first and put up a total of 288 in the scoreboard with a massive knock of 92 runs from Coulter-Nile and a half century from Steve Smith.

In reply Windies are going steadily in the chase. But they had an unfair decision from the umpire regarding the dismissal of their star batsman Chris Gayle. It was Mitchell Starc bowling to the left-handed batsman and he trapped Gayle for lbw and that made Gayle’s stay on the ground to the end.

But it was a huge no-ball from the left arm pacer right before the dismissal delivery and umpire Chris Gaffaney which could have been a free-hit. Before the dismissal, Chris Gayle was successful in two appeals for the decisions againt umpire and both of them were in the same over.
