Iconic test cricket Ashes is going on between England and Australia. On Sunday, ace English batsman Ben Stokes finished the game scoring 135 not out and help win the team by chasing the highest runs in the history of Test cricket.
While fans were hailing the England teams effort, people also talked about umpiring during the match. while some called it an error, others called it a fair match with good umpiring. What actually happened was the Australian team wasted their reviews on when Tim Paine asked for one over lbw, when Ben was clearly out. The field umpire gave a not out to the LBW appeal the team lost a single chance to defeat England.
The official handle of Fox Cricket took it to twitter and took a jibe at the umpiring error. They tweeted, “AUSTRALIA ROBBED! No reviews left for Australia, and this was given not out by Joel Wilson. An absolute disaster for Australia. Two to win for England.”

Fox Cricket got slammed by the cricket fans for finding errors in umpiring when clearly Australian team was not at its best. Some even called it Karma referring to the sandpaper controversy, which had some Australian players name attached to it.
So on the basis of zero evidence you’re asking the question? Remind me who dropped Stokes in the previous over, who failed to run out Leach & who made a ridiculous review, the umpire or Aussies?

Not even sandpaper can save you from Ben Stokes!

Yeah we’ve never had bad decisions against us. Definitely not in games against Australia either. Also definitely not in the World Cup semi where Roy didn’t touch the ball. Naaaaaaa.

Hardly robbery just because Tim Paine doesn’t know how to use the review system correctly
