Trevor Bayliss Backs Umpire Decision Over Harshal Patel’s No-Ball Instance
The instance happened in the final over when Harshal Patel bowled a no-ball. This was the second time in the match that Patel bowled an above the waist no-ball. But, he was not sidelined from the attack. David Warner, who was sitting in the dugout showed his disagreement with the umpires. However, now Trevor Bayliss has come up saying that the umpire was right. As per him, David Warner was animated because the team is not playing good cricket.
“He was a little animated because we weren’t playing very good cricket and we lost. I think the umpires got it right. There was a bit of conjecture over obviously the second high no-ball, but the first one was not directed at the batter’s body, so that wasn’t a warning. So I think the umpires got that one right,” Bayliss said while replying to an ESPNcricinfo during the virtual post-match press conference.
