In gully cricket, we don’t enjoy the benefits of high-end cameras that can assert if the player on the field is out or not out when it is not visually evident. Thus, the benefit of doubt often goes to the batsman.
However, this clip posted by Indian cricketer R. Ashwin changes everything. The video shows a glimpse of how some people showed the work of a third umpire in a hilariously creative way. This video may make you want to give the creators a standing ovation.
The video posted, has the batsman asking for a DRS after an appeal for caught behind was deemed authentic by the umpire. Soon, in multiple created flashbacks, players re-enact the scene in slow-motion, carefully scrutinized by the umpire.
After some ‘tough’ contemplation the umpire recalls his decision and announces the player as ‘not out’.
The video has garnered tremendous response from the netizens:
