Eoin Morgan to complain against Indian umpire for wrong decision

NAGPUR: England captain Eoin Morgan expressed his frustration over the quality of umpiring and indicated that the team management will give their feedback to the Match Referee. Match report; Photos; Series schedule England lost the second T20 International by 5 runs and Joe Root got a real howler as Indian umpire Shamshuddin adjudged him lbw in the final over when there was a thick inside edge. “We have the opportunity to do so before the next game. Feedback on umpiring is given through the match referee. I don’t see why we can’t have DRS in T20s,” Morgan said, indicating that they are set to speak to the match official. Morgan didn’t hold back about what he thought was a bad decision at a critical juncture. “Very frustrating. It absolutely shifted the momentum in the 20th over. Losing a batsman (Root) off the first ball, who has faced 40 balls on a wicket that’s not easy to time the ball on is quite a bit of a hammer blow. “It proved very costly all things considered a couple of decisions did not go our way. We still should have won the game,” said Morgan.
