Ben Stokes Calls for Rule Change After England’s Loss in Rajkot Test

England’s Test captain Ben Stokes is advocating for a rule change following his team’s defeat against Team India in the recent third Test match in Rajkot. India’s victory marked their largest-ever win in Test cricket history, taking a 2-1 series lead.

Ben Stokes Displeased with Umpire’s Call

Stokes expressed dissatisfaction with the umpire’s call, especially highlighting Zak Crawley’s LBW dismissal. Crawley was given out despite the ball not hitting the stumps upon review.

Stokes’ Concerns

Stokes sought clarity on the decision, emphasizing that the replay showed the ball missing the stumps. He questioned the reliability of Hawk-Eye technology, which indicated the ball was hitting the stumps despite evidence to the contrary.

England faced three umpire’s calls against them in the match, contributing to their defeat. Stokes acknowledged the team’s shortcomings but emphasized the significant impact of contentious decisions.

The England team will analyze their performance and strategize for the upcoming fourth Test match scheduled for February 23 at JSCA International Stadium Complex, Ranchi.
