Australia’s largest defeat in World Cup historical past was marred by two third-umpire selections that didn’t go in favour of Steven Smith and Marcus Stoinis.
Smith was adjudged leg-before on assessment after ball-tracking confirmed the ball was occurring to hit leg-stump though at first it seemed like it might miss the stump.
“I was looking at the screen and I actually said to Joel [Wilson], good decision. Because from front-on, it just looked like it was going down leg straightaway. I felt like the angle was pushing down leg,” Labuschagne mentioned after the match.
Meanwhile, the bowler on that event, Kagiso Rabada, additionally mentioned that he was anticipating an ‘umpire’s name’ consequence of the assessment.
“I was hoping for ‘umpires call’. I felt as if it just skidded through and didn’t really bounce much… The technology favoured us today, but I thought it was close. I don’t think it was as obvious as ‘missing’,” Rabada mentioned.
Marcus Stoinis was additionally the topic of a controversial choice when he was adjudged caught behind on assessment as a result of his backside hand was touching the highest hand, off which the ball went to the keeper.
Labuschagne revealed that Stoinis and he requested the on-field umpires whether or not they had checked the side-on angle, which might have given a clearer image and that even from the front-on view he felt there was daylight between the 2 gloves and the bat deal with.
“I initially thought it hit his thigh pad and my teammates around me felt that they heard a woody sound. Stoinis didn’t look so convincing. I think he looked as if he felt he had touched it,” Rabada, who additionally dismissed Stoinis, mentioned.
