Twitter reacts after umpire’s comical error which led to controversy

The third and the final T20I between Bangladesh and Windies turned out to be a one-sided encounter, but the match will be remembered for a long time due to the on-field umpire Tanvir Ahmed’s comical error which led to a massive error at the Mirpur Shere-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.

It all began when Oshane Thomas was bowling the 3rd over of the innings and Liton Das was caught after he went ariel. But the umpire called a no-ball and a free hit. But the replay showed that it was clearly a legal bowl.

After seeing the replay in the screen, Windies skipper Carlos Braithwaite lost his temper and rushed to the umpire to complain and also asked to review the decision. And it went from bad to worse since then. The match was paused for almost 10 minutes and the match referee also came in to join the discussion with the Windies players.
