Highlights: ICC warns commentators against criticizing umpires

The standard of umpiring in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup has been questionable as officials have missed many crucial calls which have cost teams a great deal. The issue of undetected no balls has been highlighted on several occasions in the tournament so far as the officials have been missing the line violations by the bowlers.

After the recent umpiring blunders in the Australia West Indies game, many former players and current commentators raised their voice against the issue, however, they have now been silenced by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

According to several media reports, the ICC has cautioned multiple commentators regarding criticism on match officials in the mega event as they have confirmed the receival of reprimanding emails.
