Zimbabwe in a match against Ireland, who made a record-breaking score of 332 runs in an ODI. But with the help of Brendon Taylor and Sean Williams 149 run partnership the game looked in Zimbabwe’s control. With Zimbabwe needing 32 runs off 19 balls, Williams hit a shot in the sky and was declared caught out caught, but the 3rd Umpire decision didn’t go quite right leading to controversies.
2. Steve Bucknor’s shocker against Sachin Tendulkar
At the Gabba, in the year 2003, Sachin faced a ball that not only bounced high but was also pitched way off, but Steve Bucknor decided to give it out. You could see in Sachin’s eyes, that he was surprised by the decision. Back then many trolls targeted Steve Bucknor, accusing him of hating Sachin Tendulkar
