‘Internet Explorer as umpire’: Hilarious Twitter rift in rural cricket. Watch
In cricket, umpires often face criticism from fans if the decision does not go in favor of their team. Recently, Indian umpire Nitin Menon came under severe criticism from fans for one of his decisions in the recently concluded third Test match between India and Australia at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. In a lighter vein, a hilarious incident from a village league match involving an umpire is doing the rounds on social media.
In the video, the umpires were perplexed after the bowlers made a loud appeal for a caught out. While the bowler was adamant that the batsman had hit 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 his marching orders to the batsman.

In the third Test between India and Australia, the visitors won by nine wickets to reduce the four-Test series deficit to 1–2.
Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne kept their composure on a viciously turning Indore pitch to see Australia cross the finishing line with ease.
After thrashing Australia in the first two Tests inside three days, the series is now level at 2-1 with one match to spare.
With this victory, Australia confirmed their place in the final of the World Test Championship (WTC).
Last week’s win was Australia’s second Test win in India since 2004.
India now need a win to seal their place in the WTC final.
