Jason Roy was in such good form and Kumar Dharmasena came up with a terrible call to give him out as the ball didn't even touch the gloves or bat. Roy went for the review but then the umpire told him that Jonny Bairstow had already used it. Twitterati were furious after Roy was unfairly given out.
Brief scores: Australia 223/10 in 49 overs (Steven Smith 85, Alex Carey 46; Chris Woakes 3-20, Adil Rashid 3-54) lost to England 226/2 in 32.1 overs (Jason Roy 85, Joe Root 49*; Mitchell Starc 1/70, Pat Cummins 1/34) by 8 wickets
Worst decision of this World Cup?
Got to feel for Jason Roy!
Jason Roy misses his well deserved century due to worst umpiring.. #ENGvAUS— $α|_@® (@ZikriaSalar) July 11, 2019
Something that the umpire can do at the end of the match!
I can understand Jason Roy's reaction - I think anybody given out when they didn't touch it would feel rightly aggrieved and I hope he receives an apology from the umpires after the match! #bbccricket— Adam Southwick 💙💛 (@adam_southwick) July 11, 2019
Was going to be a special ton for Jason Roy! :(
Oh dear.. jeez.. that's a blunder from Kumar Dharmasena! Jason Roy was going so fluently towards a match winning ton in a World Cup Semi-final.— Adityaa Prakash (@WkAdi25) July 11, 2019
Livid and rightly so! @JasonRoy20 @dharmasena_k #cwc19 @ICC #ENGvAUS
Dharmasena looked puzzled after the appeal! Should've gone up if he wasn't sure!
Umpires are also humans and that's why technology was invented. Kumar dharmasena should have reviewed that to third umpire, it's semi final game. Very unfair for jason roy.— Safia Feroz (@safia_feroz) July 11, 2019
A robot umpire in the future?!
The decision against Jason Roy just shows how bad umpiring has been in this world cup. With such advance in technology, on field umpiring is irrelevant. @ICC should start think about replacing umpires with Robots(software).— kishan mk (@im_kishanmk) July 11, 2019
Change is inevitable ! #ENGvAUS
Would love to see them in the IPL!
Jason Roy, Alex Carey, Van der Dussen, will bag heavy deals in 2020 IPL#CWC19— Judgment Day Failures (@IManish10_) July 11, 2019
This is how the scoreboard should read!
ICC should seriously look into this!
The tweet is gold!
Jofra Archer what a legend! xD
