India bowled very well at the death and most of England’s bowlers were woeful, I had real doubts when I heard Wood was out and replaced with Tom Curran.

The result was always going one way and India deserved to win. That said, KOHLI WAS OUT! No doubts that a neutral umpire would have given it. Very poor from the home umpires again.

That decision was very close and the equivalent of an umpire’s call - just like how Kishan was given out for that reason. The ICC need to introduce a soft signal for that, but that’s down to them.

You can’t have all tight calls going your way. Quit moaning.

If the umpire is not 100% certain the doubt goes with the batsman. Looking at those grainy shots he couldn't be 100% certain. India would have won anyway at that time.

From stump vision, it looked like somethig was behind the line. I dont think there was enough evidence to say it was clearly out.

When third umpire doesn't use stump vision you moan, when they do use, you still moan.

Instead, you should be moaning why morgan didnt bring on rashid when kohli came to bat! Doh!

There was a call against stokes for a no ball. It was almost identical to the stumping in that you couldn’t tell for 100% that there wasn’t anything behind the line but there probably wasn’t. We should at the least expect consistency from the umpires so either it wasn’t a no ball or kholi was out.

Sam Curran and Archer had the best bowling figures on the day, Rashid was about par. So it’s unfair to say “most” of England’s bowlers were rubbish, in fact half were! In fact Sam Curran and Archer were superb.

All Umpires make mistakes. Live with it.

CP88 - "very poor"?! I too was unaware that the stumping law had been changed before this Test series. I saw the guidance for the Umpires (on & off pitch) :- 1) If a home-team batsman is within a foot of making his ground, give the benefit of the doubt. 2) If the batsman is named Kohli, change point #1 to a yard. 3) Even after #2, if a batsman named Kohli is STILL out, it's a no-ball or wide.

Well, I don't think there's too much to read into that. England struggled to adjust to the ball slowing up in the pitch. India saw this and played their shots later while we didn't bowl that well. A light batting finish plus a couple of dropped catches brought morale down and Kishan and kohli capitalised to seal a comfortable win for India. Well played india- Bring on game 3.

England didn't win match 1 because they are vastly superior, India lost because of the experiments they are doing in to lead up to the T20 world cup.

Fair play to India, it was a clinical win.
Despite losing Buttler early, I think England started well.
But couldn’t capitalize at the back end & left like 20-25 runs out there.
It was a 190 pitch.

I’m sure they won’t blame anything, in the same way they made no excuses in the test series.

The fact that India and Pakistan produce cheating umpires is nothing new, and is not the reason we lost.

Tight calls have gone both ways throughout this tour - even the Kishan lbw call was given umpire’s call. But in Kohli’s case the game had already been lost as they needed about 15 from 5.

But some people will always moan...
India bowled very well at the death and most of England’s bowlers were woeful, I had real doubts when I heard Wood was out and replaced with Tom Curran.

A difficult pitch to bat on when India bowl. With England back to bowling wide and short it is suddenly an easy pitch to bat on. Final nail was the third umpire not giving Kohli out stumped when he was clearly out. Disgrace of an umpire.

A difficult pitch to bat on when India bowl. With England back to bowling wide and short it is suddenly an easy pitch to bat on. Final nail was the third umpire not giving Kohli out stumped when he was clearly out. Disgrace of an umpire.

Only problem with your analysis is there is no skill or thought required in T20. Just the ability to bash it into the crowd more than the other side.
India bowled very well at the death and most of England’s bowlers were woeful, I had real doubts when I heard Wood was out and replaced with Tom Curran.

The result was always going one way and India deserved to win. That said, KOHLI WAS OUT! No doubts that a neutral umpire would have given it. Very poor from the home umpires again.

Some were saying things like pitches will turn square blah blah. Now wait for even funnier excuses.

This India side is right at the top. Like I said earlier - A T20 match between top teams today is quite a bit of lottery. You win toss half the battle is won.

England didn't win match 1 because they are vastly superior rather India lost because they "rested" their top opener.

England outplayed, simples! Also, it is a dangerous game to give Kohli a route back to form, give him a finger and he would to take the whole biddy and more. He averages 51 in T20Is. The next highest is 33 I believe!!

Fair play to India, it was a clinical win.
Despite losing Buttler early, I think England started well.
But couldn’t capitalize at the back end & left like 20-25 runs out there.
It was a 190 pitch.

I remember when Jonny Bairstow batted at 7 and had the gloves in Test match cricket and made six centuries.

I also remember when Jonny Bairstow was the most destructive T20 opening batsman in the world, both with David Warner at club level and Jason Roy at International level.

Do you remember those days too?

I totally agree with you, Maksi.
Roy & Bairstow should open, & Buttler should come in as a finisher (along with Morgan).

He's still good. They've shot his confidence though, there was no need to drop him from tests, then called him back. A trial by fire, playing no 3 in India pfft!

I don't understand the reasoning behind him not opening either. The Roy and Bairstow partnership was working fine! Morgan, coaches, selectors are getting too clever and muddling things up

Scandalous treatment of Bairstow by arrogant Ed Smith, singlehandedly ruining a senior player's career. I wrote to Bairstow around the time he lost the gloves, warning him about the Smith/ Butler project.

That decision was very close and the equivalent of an umpire’s call - just like how Kishan was given out for that reason. The ICC need to introduce a soft signal for that, but that’s down to them.

You can’t have all tight calls going your way. Quit moaning.
87
14/03/2021 17:29:25 25 3

Don’t be silly. Umpires call is for the trajectory of an unknown, or impact. If there’s nothing behind the line it’s out. Doesn’t matter how tight it is.

The Kohli stumping is not really an issue. We would have lost anyway.
