Umpiring standards have stooped to a new low in the India and England series and there have been questions over decisions involving the third umpire. On Friday, another umpiring howler took place when English all-rounder Ben Stokes survived a run out of Kuldeep Yadav in the second ODI between the two teams.

In the 26th over of the English innings, Kuldeep Yadav hit the stumps directly from the deep mid-wicket boundary and the ball directly hit the stumps. As the on-field umpires referred to the third umpire, the footage was quite clear that Ben Stokes hadn’t crossed the crease and no part of his bat was inside the popping crease.

Twitter Lashes Out At Umpiring Howlers As Ben Stokes Survives A Run Out

When the third umpire displayed not out on the big screen, the Indian contingent didn’t look happy at all. The Indian team also suffered in the T20I series as umpiring howlers continued to torment the Men in Blue. Indian skipper Virat Kohli had also spoken prior to the ODI series regarding the soft-signal.

After Friday’s incident, the Twitterati wasn’t impressed at all with the umpiring decisions. While team India was batting, there were a couple of DRS calls overturned by the third umpire. After Ben Stokes survived the runout, fans on Twitter lashed out at the umpiring howlers.
