International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday gave its verdict on a video of amateur cricket that showed a fan getting bowled out in a weird fashion.
In the video which went viral on social media, the batsman tried a super swing at the ball ,but due to the unplayable surface and wind, the ball returned underneath his feet, only to hit down the stumps. Cricketing fans were surprised that ICC gave its verdict on whether the decision to be given out is fair or not.
The batsman was also seen protesting against the on-field decision to be given out but later agreed to went back, making way for his teammate to come and pick up the willow.
A fan named Hamza sent this video to us this morning asking for a ruling.

“A fan named Hamza sent this video to us this morning asking for a ruling. Unfortunately for the (very unlucky) batsman, law 32.1 confirmed this is…. out!,” ICC said in the video titled “In or Out” posted on Facebook, confirming the on-field decision.
According to ICC’s law 32.1 on playing conditions, “The striker is out bowled if his wicket is put down by a ball delivered by the bowler, not being a no ball, even if it first touches the striker’s bat or person.”
The location from where the video was shot is inclear , but reports have found out that it has originated either in Pakistan or India.
