Jason Roy’s Outrageous Dissent Against Umpire Was NOT Cricket, NOT British — But Kumar Dharmasena Goofed TOO.

I watch at least an hour of cricket, on my 47″ TV, nearly every day — year around. So, I, indubitably, have seen a LOT of cricket.

But, what I saw from Jason Roy, I am sure, was unprecedented. I am sure I have never seen such open dissent on an umpiring decision. Yes, I saw the various ball tampering ‘rows’. But, that was not a single batsman, in the middle, complaining about an umpiring decision. This was not cricket. I was surprised. It was also not very British. We are guardians of the game.

He should have been punished more severely. They should have made him miss the final. Doesn’t matter that it was a HORRIBLE, wrong umpiring decision.

Plus, it was NOT like the game was tight. England had basically won and had more than enough wickets in hand.

Kumar Dharmasena has made some real howlers in the past and this was up there. You could tell he looked confused. He also started to raise two-fingers. He probably had forgotten that England had no reviews left. He must have thought the review would sort it out. But, there was no review. But, still NO EXCUSE for such dissent. That is NOT cricket. We can’t let this happen. It will ruin the game.
