Cricket is an entertaining game. Whether it’s fans or players, there are always some incidents or moments that tickle our funny bones. But sometimes, umpires can also give fans hilarious moments to laugh at even if it’s unintentional. Something similar happened in the final of the Pakistan Super League, where a technical glitch created a hilarious moment.

"Aawaz hi nahi aa rahi”

The incident happened in the 15th over when Muzarabani got Rovman Powell to edge behind the keeper, who took a low catch to his right. Umpire Aleem Dar, who deemed it out, sent the decision upstairs to confirm for a clean catch. 

The third umpire after checking all the angles agreed with the on-field umpire’s decision and asked Aleem Dar to stay with his decision of out. However, this led to an awkward yet hilarious moment as due to some technical gitch, Dar couldn’t hear the third umpire’s verdict. 

The veteran umpire decided to stick with his own instinct and gave it out. Fortunately, the TV-umpire’s decision was also out, otherwise, the hilarious moment would have turned into a controversial incident.
