Fans Fume on Twitter while ICC Kumar Dharmasena wins to the Umpire World Cup final despite Jason Roy Howler

New Delhi: Kumar Dharmasena has been appointed as referee for Sunday's World Cup Final between England and New Zealand, despite his incorrect decision to defend the English opener Jason Roy on Thursday in the semi-final against Edgbaston.

The Sri Lankan referee stated that Roy had fallen behind the leg at 85 points from Pat Cummins, even when it appeared from repetitions that he had not made contact with the ball. Roy refused to run away and asked for an assessment to realize that the English party had already lost one when Jonny Bairstow used up the review from England after being trapped in the front by Mitchell Starc.

Roy was forced to leave the fold by square leg referee Marais Erasmus and fans on Twitter lashed out on the controversial decision. Later in the day, England beat Australia in an eight-wicket victory to slide into the World Cup final against the Kiwi & # 39; s.

The English opener was also punished for the remonstrations on the field when he called the decision "f ** king painful". Roy earned two points and a fine of 30 percent of his competition costs, which he accepted during a post-match hearing. The 28-year-old now has three points, but match-bans only get going if a player collects a total of four points, making Roy available to play on Sunday while England offered to win the World Cup for the first time.

So, when ICC named the race officials for the World Cup Final on Friday, fans on Twitter displeased the authority of the Cricket. However, contrary to the Edgbaston line-up, Australian Rod Tucker will be the third referee instead of Chris Gaffaney from New Zealand.
