In cricket, we have seen quite a few instances of batsmen being dismissed in the most unusual and controversial manner. Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh, who was a part of the Indian squad which lifted the 2011 World Cup, on November 12 shared a video on Instagram in which a batsman was given out caught-behind even though the ball didn’t strike the bat’s edge.
The video starts with text: “This is one of the strangest dismissals you’ll ever see.” The video also mentioned: “The batsman clearly doesn’t edge it and no one in the opposition appeals. But the umpire raises his finger!”.
Clearly, this was one of the most terrible caught-behind decisions we ever witnessed in the game of cricket. Through the video, it could not be determined in which match did the incident occured and among which teams.
Watch the video here:
Yuvraj Singh is currently out of the Indian squad allegedly due to fitness concerns. He played his last One Day International match against West Indies on 30th June 2017. He scored 39 in that innings.
