An umpiring decision taken at the County Championship has been causing a lot of contention on Twitter and it is understandable.

Things did get tricky there. Kent batter Jordan Cox moved to his side while tackling a delivery, pretty much hiding what was going on from the angle the umpire was positioned at. He took a turn and the ball landed in the hands of the fielder on the short leg. 

Now, there is no proof that the ball actually hit the ball. In fact, it looks like it didn’t, because when would that have happened?

But Jordan was declared dismissed immediately, and while he tried to stage a silent protest by not moving, he ultimately had to. 

Meanwhile, here are the reactions of people on Twitter. 

Hard luck!
