Islamophobia in Cricket: Umpire under fire for U Akmal decision


The dismissal of Umer Akmal, a controversial decision of which went into review to 3rd umpire, Steve Davis, is the debate all across cricket world. The reviewing technology snicko-meter, came und great criticism by cricket experts and it is said to be Islamophobia. T20, one day, test cricketer and no.1 ODI bowler Saeed Ajmal says, Umpire Steve Davis has also victimised Pakistan in the past and had not given even a single dismissal that went to snicko-meter technology review when even he was in team. Again Sarfaraz Nawaz, former Test cricketer, criticized the 3rd Umpire saying that the decision to declare the batsman out came from ‘outside’ and was influenced by ‘external’ factors and a kind of prejudice decision. The decision came at the critical time when Pakistan was in hard situation and there was a collapse once Umar Akmal got out. Saeed Ajmal ban on his bowling action was also the part of Islamophobia and a conspiracy against Pakistani cricket. It looks ridiculous when Saeed Ajamal is allowed to play cricket again just a week before world cup.Saeed Ajamal said he need minimum one month to boot up..
