Without a doubt umpiring is a difficult task, as the on-field umpires need to make some important calls in a matter of seconds. But, that doesn’t mean it can’t be an interesting one!
Trapped decisions and other decisions must be made accurately, as one wrong call can affect the whole game. In particular, umpires usually come to light when they make mistakes. However, this umpire from Maharashtra has come to light due to his unique skills.
