India see off England in second Twenty20
14/03/2021 | sport | cricket | 856
England suffer a chastening seven-wicket defeat by a resurgent India in the second Twenty20 in Ahmedabad.
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.

It wasn't 100% out. Even a neutral umpire would have given it not out.

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!

just bear in mind, even in non-COVID times, in a t2o international there are no neutral umpires (only a neutral referee) and also Mark Wood was injured

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.

Funny, don't remember many English batsmen, including the captain, walking when they were clearly OUT in various other games. What was Kohli supposed to do ?

All Umpires make mistakes. Live with it.

If we'd caught him it would not have been an issue. The infield umpires in the test series were excellent.

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.

England can now blame on the pitch and oh wait, they can’t blame Kohli tonight. Can they ?
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.

Behave. You can acknowledge the loss without having an unsubstantiated dig.
Everyone going on about social distance. Maybe a third world country with a population of over a billion handled lockdown way better than a small rich island with inept leaders and experts. The fans in the stadium suggest to me that they are out of lockdown. The excuses coming out when losing a game is comical. Removed

Yes, Tom Curran looks out of his depth; not too keen on Jordan either - but Sam Curran definitely has the spirit, the nous and the talent, he should be given far more to do for England. That 50 of his in last Autumn's IPL, when the rest of his side went down like a pack of cards, showed he can cut it at the highest level.

No, they don’t want to bring him down, they want to see games properly officiated in accordance with the rules and for Kohli to behave with more grace. There’s little room for optimism on either count from what I’ve seen so far
