Legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar feels that Australian batter David Warner walked off the field without nicking the ball due to the strong reaction from the Pakistan players in the semi-final of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021.
Star Australian opener David Warner made a big blunder by walking off the field without taking a review as he was adjusted caught behind on 49 in the high-profile game against Pakistan. However, the action replay showed that he didn’t nick the ball, and there was a big gap between the bat and the ball.
However, Warner losing his wicket didn’t have a big impact on the result of the match as Australia won the match by 5 wickets with the help of Matthew Wade’s exceptional power-hitting to make it to the final of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 and now they will lock horns with New Zealand on 14 November in Dubai.
David Warner’s Dismissal Was Surprising – Sachin Tendulkar
Talking about Warner’s dismissal in a Facebook video, Tendulkar said that he was surprised after seeing Warner not taking a review. Also, he explained what actually would have happened. He stated:
“His dismissal was surprising. Everyone had appealed, and even the umpire gave him out.
“Sometimes, batter nicks the ball and he doesn’t realise it, sometimes there is no nick but batter walks after the strong reactions from opponents and the umpire,” he said.
“I think that was the case with Warner. But it was surprising when I saw the action replay,” Tendulkar added.
