“Your career would be irrelevant”, Fan on Social media hits back at Ben Stokes with stats on Umpires Call

Whenever England does not do well in a game, the narrative transfers to a different topic. This time around, the talk is about Umpires Call. A few decisions went against England in this regard. Ben Stokes was vocal about it and said that the Umpires Call must be removed in the future. On that note, here, we take a look as a fan on social media hits back at Ben Stokes with stats on Umpires Call.

A few controversial decisions at Rajkot

England was cruising at one point in the game. However, a strong bowling performance by India and a poor session by the English batters led them to concede a heavy lead. From then on, it was too easy for India to get back in the game and start controlling it.

When the Englishmen came back to bat again, it was another poor show by them. The DRS decisions also did not act in their favour. A few of the Umpire’s Call decisions led them to lose wickets. Eventually, England lost the game by a heavy margin.

Fan on social media hits back at Ben Stokes with stats on Umpires Call

After the game, Ben Stokes said that the Umpires Call had to be done away with. However, the fans were not happy with this perspective by the English skipper. In fact, one of the fans pulled out a list of batters who had benefited the most from this rule in DRS. Interestingly, it threw up Ben Stokes’ name as one of the biggest beneficiaries of the rule. On the other hand, Virat Kohli was one of the least lucky players in this regard.

Meanwhile, England must focus on doing things right in the next game at Ranchi. They definitely have the skills to make a comeback in the series.
