The Three Lions registered their fourth consecutive loss in the ODI World Cup 2023 after facing a hammering against India. Despite inviting India to bat first, the Jos Buttler-led side failed to chase the 230-run target set by the host nation at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow on October 29.
What sparked another controversy in the match was Joe Root’s dismissal. In the early overs of the England inning, Jasprit Bumrah dismissed the England batter for a golden duck. However, the ball pitched slightly up with Root getting beaten due to the lack of bounce as it showed the impact in line, hitting the stumps.

But the third umpire called in for a wicket with batter making his way to the pavilion, losing his cool on the controversial review.
