Fans express anger as KL Rahul given Out on a No Ball against Pakistan

Dubai/Bhubaneswar: Hopes of India Cricket Team fans were dashed yesterday as the Men in Blue lost to Pakistan by 10 wickets in the T20 World Cup match.

India lost openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul in the first 13 balls of the innings to Shaheen Shah Afridi. While Sharma was trapped plumb in front of the wicket by a yorker, Rahul was undone by a fast inswinger going through the gate to hit the stumps.

However, replay later showed that Afridi’s foot had crossed the line while bowling the wicket-taking delivery to KL Rahul, who scored 3 off 8 balls. The team’s score was mere 6 at that time when Rahul’s dismissal came as a major jolt.

The field umpires were not informed by the third umpire regarding the no ball.

Team India fans took to Twitter to express anger and disappointment claiming that Rahul was not out.
