Umpiring remains one of the most prominent aspects of cricket and umpires often grab headline for the all-wrong reason, and hardly ever applauded for their accuracy in the middle. An umpire’s job is full of challenges and it requires focus and composure of highest degree to avoid any wrong call which could change the entire result of the game.

In a viral video, an umpire can be seen making bizarre call during a village cricket match which has left everyone laughing. As visible in the viral video, umpire signalled wide even before the delivery could get completed. The bowler bowled a looping delivery which pitched down the leg side, and the batter tried to get the maximum runs off it.

However, the batter failed to hit the ball as he wanted to and ended up scuffing it, allowing the wicket-keeper to run back to take an easy catch. The video of the same was shared by the official Twitter handle of England’s Barmy Army with a caption, “Umpire already signalling a wide…OUT caught.”
