Suryakumar Yadav’s dream international batting debut came to a disputable end as he was expected to have been out on 57, captured at serious fine leg by David Malan off the bowling of Sam Curran.
Playing some shining shots, Suryakumar Yadav declared himself on the international stage and watched set to possibly get a century.
Still, his near-chanceless innings came to a premature end, thanks to a dodgy judgment from the on-field umpire.
Fans on Twitter break out after Suryakumar Yadav’s controversial release
Replays indicated that 3 might be a debate about whether some part of Malan’s right hand was under the ball, as it was nearest to the grass.
However, since there was no final indication for overturning the soft signal (out), the third-umpire had to go with the on-field decide.
Fans on Twitter were completely furious as they believe Suryakumar Yadav was batting beautifully. They certainly believed some part of the ball had touched the grass and the 30-year-old should have been given not out.
This unhappy dismissal has yet again sparked a debate about whether the soft signal by the on-field umpire and umpire’s call must be junk completely.

Suryakumar Yadav waited for years to this moment, batting for Team India and when he batted for the first time – scored fifty from just 28 balls including 6 fours and 2 sixes. What a knock, SKY. pic.twitter.com/7ezWQdlMe6

How can umpire Anantha Padmanabhan give the soft signal as OUT while standing 70 yards away from fielder? How were the slow-mo replays not conclusive enough?
The fingers were clearly not underneath the ball. Absolute shambles. Shocking.

Both Suryakumar Yadav and the Zomato delivery guy had to suffer because there was no conclusive evidence.Advertisement

While Suryakumar’s arguable dismissal will be a hot topic for quite some time, it doesn’t take out from the fact that it was an absolutely fantastic knock by someone playing his first international innings.
The 30-year-old’s brave, counter-attacking strokeplay shocked the visitors. Given that he hadn’t batted on his debut and was went down in the next game, there could have been huge pressure on Suryakumar Yadav’s accept while batting.
Although, his first-ball six off Jofra Archer was sufficient to show how he was going to go about his innings. With 6 boundaries and 3 sixes, Suryakumar has proved to be a true opponent for a place in Team India’s T20 World Cup team.
