One of the umpiring howlers according to the fan was when SRH’s Marco Jansen flicked a delivery back inside the boundary rope while fielding at long-off. Fans were of the opinion that Jansen had touched the ground during the process and a six should have been awarded.
In fact, the on-air commentators were also of the same view. Later during Hyderabad’s batting innings, the umpire sent a caught-behind decision upstairs even without Mumbai asking for any review. Here’s how the fans have reacted to the fielding standards in match number 25 of the IPL 2023.
Trust me or not but this decision was referred to third umpire for checking whether it’s run out or Not. 😂😂😂

Why did the umpire refer it himself? Surprising.. Ideally I would think the umpire goes by his judgement and gives a decision.. and then teams review if they disagree.. #SRHvsMI
