A big match is going on between Australia and Afghanistan (AUS vs AFG) from the point of view of T20 World Cup 2022 at Adelaide ground. It is very important for hosts Australia to win this match, otherwise they will be out of the tournament. Whereas Afghanistan would like to win this match and earn their first win in this tournament. In the first innings, Australia scored 168 runs thanks to a strong half-century from Glenn Maxwell, but the umpires made a big mistake in this innings of the Australian team.
In cricket, six legal balls are bowled by a bowler in an over. But only 5 legal balls were bowled in the fourth over of Australia’s innings, which did not go unnoticed by the umpires. Only 5 balls were bowled in this over bowled by Naveen-ul-Haq, in which Mitchell Marsh took one run on the first ball, David Warner took a run on the second ball and then a four on the third ball and three runs in the fourth ball were taken. And in the end no run came off the fifth ball. Then after that the umpire declared the over and the sixth ball was not bowled.
There is a lot of discussion on social media about this 5 ball over. Cricket fans have targeted the umpire for such a blunder in any major ICC event. Because in a cricket match, one ball changes the result. However, to make up for this over, extra balls were not made in the subsequent overs. But this big mistake made by the umpire can cost the hosts Australia. If Afghanistan wins this match, then questions will also arise on the umpiring as the hosts will be knocked out of this tournament.
