What's wrong with this stupid Indian Umpire Nitin Menon?
Something is seriously wrong with him. He refused 4 plumb LBWs in the last three games he umpired. 3rd t20 vs SA he refused De Kock's LBW early on his innings and he went on to make a crucial half century. It was crashing on to the leg stump.
In, 1st t20 he refused two LBWs in two consecutive deliveries of Mushfiqur Rahim in Chahal's bowling (1st one crashing onto the leg stump and 2nd one hitting middle leg), he was only at 6 and went on to play a heroic knock of 60* to win the game, India's unbeaten record vs Ban totally got ruined.
In previous match (2nd t20), he refused one of most plumb LBW you could ever witness. Impact was dead straight on middle stump and hitting middle leg by turning slightly (or inner part of leg stump at worst) but he refused again and India got lucky runout due to Pant's presence of mind otherwise it could have been fatal.
I was so happy he wasn't umpiring yesterday though there was no real LBW chance created in final T20.
Also, he gave Rohit Sharma LBW in 1st t20 without any hesitance which was umpire's call and ball was barely touching the top of the stumps.
