Uma Chetry’s stumping of Tanzim Brits was overturned into a no-ball. Here we explain why the on-field umpires made the decision.

In the first innings of the second T20I between the India Women’s team and the South African Women’s team, a certain decision by the umpire has left the cricketing fans confused.

The South African batter Tanzim Brits was seemingly stumped by the wicketkeeper, Uma Chetry in the second over of the innings, off the bowling of S Sajana. But the third umpire had suggested that the wicketkeeper had not kept her gloves behind the stumps before the stumping attempt.

Here’s what MCC’s official laws 27.3.1 have stated, ” The wicket-keeper shall remain wholly behind the wicket at the striker’s end from the moment the ball comes into play until a ball delivered by the bowler touches the bat or person of the striker or passes the wicket at the striker’s end or the striker attempts a run”.

The very next subsection of the law further adds,” In the event of the wicket-keeper contravening this Law, the striker’s end umpire shall call and signal No ball as soon as applicable after the delivery of the ball”.

So this means that the umpire has made the correct decision as Uma Chetry’s gloves were going past the stumps during the delivery which means that the delivery was indeed a no-ball.

However, the decision did not end up being a decisive factor as the game was eventually washed out due to rain. Brits scored a crucial 39-ball 52 along with Anneke Bosch who scored 40 in 32 balls helping power South Africa to 177/6 in their quota of 20 overs.

India will hope that they can come good and redeem themselves after losing the previous game. They have one more shot at levelling the series with the third and final game also taking place in Chennai on July 9.

The Indian team will hope that they can get better of South Africa and get a better idea of their starting 11s ahead of the Women’s T20 World Cup 2024 in October 2024.
