The netizens took to social media and posted tweets bashing the umpires. New Zealand vs England Cricket Score Final ODI Match.

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson who got edged and taken by the keeper was also adjudged as not out. However, the review had something else in store as the decision was reversed and he was sent packing on the score of 30.
