Twitter reacts as ball hitting the stumps failing to dislodge bails
Bangladesh batsman Mohammad Saifuddin was lucky enough against England while he was batting as the bails did not fall despite hitting the stumps in delivery from Ben Stokes. A similar incident happened today during the match between Australia and India. This time the lucky batsman was David Warner. [বাংলায় পড়ুন: সাইফউদ্দিনের মতই ‘ভাগ্যবান’ ওয়ার্নার]
This is the fifth time such a thing happened in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup. It happened first time during England vs South Africa match. Then again happened at Cardiff when New Zealand faced Sri Lanka. The third time such a disappointing thing happened for a bowler during Australia vs Windies match when Chris Gayle was lucky enough to be not out despite ball hitting the stumps.

Meanwhile, cricketers and cricket fans took it to Twitter to express disappointment over the issue. Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhter termed such thing as ‘insane’. New Zealand all-rounder has come up with a solution in his tweet.
Let’s look at a few tweets:
Today is the 5th instance of ball hitting the stumps and bails not falling.
5th instance, WITHIN this World Cup.
Whats going on?? 🤔🤔

I understand that the electronics in the stumps and the bails make them heavier. Why can’t the groove the bails sit in just be made shallower? Won’t that fix the problem? https://t.co/MXfLWjgHqi

This can’t keep happening with the bails !!! Hard enough being a bowler nowadays .. needs changing

Yes it’s very strange and ICC should take action for this.
Already there is nothing for bowlers and these kind of things disturb more to the bowler

Warner would have been back in the pavilion by now

The concept of stumps was to avoid confusion whether a ball hit the stump or not in the older days. With current technology, I don’t think there is any need for this rule.
