Eoin Morgan has praised his side's all-round performance against India after Kanpur T20I win.

It was not just the last over heroics from Jasprit Bumrah that sealed the game for Indian team but also the umpiring gaffe committed by Shamshuddin, who tilted the see-saw in team India’s favour, by declaring Joe Root out on the first ball of the last over, even when Root had edged the ball.

It was the turning point of the game; if Root would have batted the last over, then the result could have been different as he was the one who had been there at the crease from past 15 overs and had got the momentum but was wrongly adjudged at the crucial moment of the game, which nearly put the match in team India’s lapses.

England skipper Eoin Morgan was quite upset with the umpiring gaffe and in the post-match press conference, talked about taking the matter to the match referee,

“There is extreme frustration, absolutely.”

Morgan said after the match.

“It shifted momentum, the first ball of the 20th over, losing a batsman who’s faced [almost] 40 balls on a wicket that’s not that easy to time it is quite a hammer blow. It’s proved very costly all things considered. A couple of decisions didn’t go our way and we still should have won the game and that’s a big positive for us. That we didn’t, is disappointing.”

“We have an opportunity to do that before the next game, there’s always feedback given by the match referee on our report,”

Morgan said.

Morgan further added to the sensitivity of the matter and said that the technology i.e. DRS should be used in the T20 games as well, no matter whether its a world cup game or not,

“Even if it’s just for World Cup games you’d accept it. If this was a World Cup game tonight and we were out of the World Cup or lost a World Cup final we’d be spewing. The fact it’s not [available] is a concern. There is as much on the line as there is in a Test or a one-day match so no reason why it shouldn’t be used.”

Riding on the brilliant last over from Jasprit Bumrah and the umpiring gaffe, Indian team edged past England to post a win in the much win contest and kept the hopes alive in the series.

The third and final T20I of the series will be played in Bangalore on February 1 and the winner of the game will go away with the T20 cup.
