“It clearly isn’t part of the rules. Yes, no balls goes upstairs and third umpire is in charge of that, the run-outs and stumpings but they haven’t declared that any other incident like that the third umpire can overrule an on-field umpire so until that happens we are not going to have full engagement of the technology that is available.”
Former India batsman Sanjay Manjrekar can also be of the view that third umpire ought to have intervened.
“I was trying to make the exact point of decorum vs commonsense because had the third umpire intervened and let Menon know that it wasn’t short and had Menon changed his decision I don’t think anybody would have any problem with that because it was clear that right decision was made,” Manjrekar mentioned.
