Netizens wonder as Aleem Dar makes three errors in Pak vs Eng test match
Pakistan umpire Aleem Dar began trending on Twitter after the third umpire overturned three of Dar’s rulings in the first session of Pakistan vs England test match.
Dar, who is known for making precise and accurate decisions, made three errors in the Pak vs Eng Test’s first session alone.
In his debut test match, Pakistan’s young spinner Abrar Ahmed sent back seven England players to the pavilion in second match at Multan Cricket Stadium.
Coincidentally, all three reversed decisions of Dar were off the debutant Muhammad Abrar’s deliveries.
A highly unusual moment occurred in the first session when England’s Ben Duckett reviewed the LBW decision by Aleem Dar. He seemed to be in a standoff with his colleague upstairs when the third umpire asked Dar to reverse his decision.
Abrar Ahmed caught Duckett in front of the stumps on the first delivery of the 19th over, who was given out by the field umpire Dar. The third umpire forced Dar to change his decision when the batter reviewed the decision.
Aleem Dar, who has won the ICC Best Umpire of the Year title three years in a row, astonished Twitter users with his errors.
