A local umpire has grabbed a lot of eyeballs thanks to his acrobatic gesture to signal a wide ball. The match was between Kadepathar Kings and Bhivri Blasters in Maharashtra’s Purandar Premier League 2021. As the bowler strayed in line, the umpire astonishingly performed a headstand to signal wide by stretching his legs instead of the conventional way of outstretching both hands. Everyone on the ground, including the commentators were left in splits and the clip has been justifiably doing the rounds on social media.
