Dhoni Run Out Legal Delivery Controversy:
Best finisher in World Cricket MS Dhoni’s dismissal was the turning point of India vs New Zealand semi-final match in World Cup 2019. Dhoni got run out when he was about to change the gear with India needing 25 runs off the 10 deliveries at Old Trafford. Hardcore fans, however, blamed an umpiring error for his dismissal and questioned New Zealand’s field placement. MS Dhoni was at the crease with ample expectations from Indian fans. Dhoni had done such jobs many times before and he had plans to execute this one too. The 49th over was on with Lockie Ferguson bowling.
India fans shared videos and pictures of television screens just before that very ball on which Dhoni was dismissed. It showed that there were six New Zealand fielders outside the inner circle while only five fielders are allowed.
It’s so pothetic #umpiring. They are representing India. Indians have faith in player but we are living in 21st century.Things are just on our finger tips and this kind of blunder mistake but we can undo the mistake. pic.twitter.com/YTDzWH9dfF
