Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh was visibly very upset on Saturday when he took to the field against Sydney Sixers, batting for Perth Scorchers in the Eliminator of BBL 2020-21. Notably, the Big Bash League hasn’t yet approved the use of the Umpires Decision Review System (DRS) and thus, the umpiring howlers have continued in the league.
Time and again, players and fans have also vouched for the inclusion of technology in the league. Earlier in the season too, there have been howlers of unprecedented magnitude. On Saturday, another such howler took place in the league when the Perth Scorchers took on the Sydney Sixers in the Qualifier match of the Big Bash League.

In the 13th over of the game, Steve O’ Keefe was bowling and Mitchell Marsh was on the strike. He was caught down the leg side despite no edge being involved. Marsh seemed very uncomfortable with the decision and was visibly very upset. He was seen shouting at the umpire for his decision.
Perth Scorchers were playing on 85/3 when Mitchell Marsh was dismissed. Scorchers decided to bat first after winning the toss wherein they posted a target of 167 runs for the opponents.
