Watch: During the AUS-W vs. SA-W ODI, confusion breaks out when the on-field umpire signals a bad decision after the DRS review

<p>During Wednesday’s second ODI between Australia Women and South Africa Women at the North Sydney Oval, there was a humorous incident involving an on-field umpire. After a review, there was a misunderstanding between the television umpires and the ground umpires.</p>

<p>Ashleigh Gardner of Australia struck Sune Luus’s pads as the bowler made a strong case for leg before wicket. Luus attempted to sweep but missed the line.</p>
<p>The non-striker umpire, Claire Polosak, was not quite persuaded that the ball had struck the stump when she promptly ruled in favor of South Africa.</p>
<p>On the other hand, the Australian team seemed certain that the ball was in the stump line. They decided to use the Decision Review System (DRS) and sent the call to TV umpire Sue Redfern, who then double-checked it. The ball had pitched far beyond the off-stump and was obviously going to miss the wickets, as the replay showed.</p>
<p>“Impact outside, pitch outside off.” Please return to Claire out on the field. Remain indoors rather than outside. Hold on. Not yet a signal out, Redfern informed Polosak. The on-field umpire was confused at that point and gave it out by inadvertently raising her finger. But Polosak corrected her mistake quickly, changing her signal with a forced grin.</p>
<p>Luus lost her wicket in Gardner’s very next over after failing to take advantage of the opportunity. The South African hitter hit only two boundaries in her meager 19 runs off 33 balls. Batting first in the rain-affected match, the Proteas set a goal of 230 runs, helped by fifty-six runs from Marizanne Kapp and forty-four from Anneke Bosch.</p>
<p>With the ball, South Africa seemed to be more in control. In the first 10 overs, they defeated four Australian batsmen. The early collapse was caused by Kapp, as the pacer took three wickets in a row with the new ball. The next Australian batsmen were likewise unable to hold out at the crease for longer. In the end, Kim Garth proved her worth, although according to the DLS system, Australia fell 84 runs short of the mark, despite her undefeated 42.</p>
