Joel Wilson, the on-filed umpire in ongoing India vs Bangladesh Day-Night Test 2019 is facing the ire of netizens after he wrongly adjudged Imrul Kayes out on Ishant Sharma’s delivery. The Bangladesh opener got an edge with the ball on his thigh and Saha took the catch behind the stumps. Joel Wilson raised his finger after seeing Team India's vociferous appeal. Nevertheless, Kayes called a quick review against the dismissal and he was saved by the DRS (Umpire Decision Review System). Wilson, who previously made the headlines with multiple wrong decisions in Ashes 2019 series, instantly started getting trolled on Twitter for his yet another goof-up.
