Mumbai: West Indies opener Chris Gayle became a victim of poor umpiring during their second match of World Cup 2019 against Australia at Trent Bridge.

In the initial overs of the match, Gayle was successful in reviewing two decision against umpire Chris Gaffaney.

 

But the biggest error of the game was Gaffaney missing Mitchell Starc's no ball. It was evident that it was a massive no-ball by Starc. Furthermore, Gayle was dismissed on the very next ball, which would have been a free-hit delivery if the umpire had successfully spotted the no-ball.

West Indies lost the match by 15 runs. If the umpiring was accurate, Gayle's innings might have made a huge difference in the game.

Twitter, along with Gayle's teammate Kieron Pollard called out the umpiring decisions of the match. Pollard expressed his discontent by sharing this picture on his Instagram.
