Cricket is a much unpredictable game, when it comes about the results of a match. One minute a team is dominating over the opponent and the next time, the opponent side over comes the first team. However, this uncertainty some times fuels the unfair decisions. This is what happened in the 10th match between Australia and West Indies, when Chris Gayle was on the crease. In his short stay, he was given out time three times with overturning the decision two times. However, on the final ball he was finally lbwed by Mitchel Starc.
The Universe Boss once again took a review, but the ball was hitting the stumps and he had to walk away from the ground. However, there was a second side to the story as well. Mitchel Starc bowled a no ball before he took Gayle’s wickets. However, the Kiwi Umpire missed to notice this big ” No Ball” and Gayle was given out on the very next ball which must have been a “free hit”. Had not been a poor day for ICC Cricket Umpires, the outcomes of this match between Australia and West Indies must have been different.
May Be ICC is sleeping like a kid on this matter. But, Twitter fans are not. Lets See, what they have to say about it.
Wtf is going on at @cricketworldcup
The ball before Gayle was given out was a Noball! not only that Umpire's call gave him out! Chris Dafaney missed that. The ball he got out was supposed to be a free hit.

Does it ring any bells ? Aamir no ball in 2010 in Eng ? That was match fixing and is this just human error?

4 overturned reviews so far shows how the umpiring has been. Far too many mistakes. Very poor.
And this is a World Cup. #AUSvWI

Former West Indies Players Micheal Holding Said While Commentating:
I m Sorry, but the umpiring in this has been Atrocious. They have been intimidated, that means they are weak.
