Whenever India and Pakistan engage in a thrilling encounter, an epic drama is guaranteed. One of such episodes was on display in the semi-final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 tournament. After a brisk start, India looked on course for a gigantic total before Pakistan broke their momentum. However, the green team wasn’t able to chase a modest total to crash out of the competition.
The most noticeable moment of the game was recorded when Sachin Tendulkar’s seemingly out decision was overturned. It was able to stir controversy as many believed that the technology wasn’t able to produce a fair result.
Recently, the renowned umpire Ian Gould became a part of this debate who believed that it was clearly out. The 62-year old said that it was a quicker ball from Ajmal which struck the pads and it was hitting the stumps.
“When the ball hit the pad, all I saw was a quicker ball form Ajmal and it thudded into the pads and went to square leg. For me, it was just right, he’s out. Sorry, you’re out. I don’t care who you are, Sachin or anybody else, you’re out,” said by the former domestic cricketer of England.
