Netizens Brutally Trolled Nasser Hussain For Doing Cricket Commentary From The Fields During An Ongoing Match

Cricket is definitely incomplete without the commentary by the professionals who know the sport very well. They sit in the commentary box and give the audiences a detailed description of the ongoing match. That is a usual scenario, right? But what if the commentator adds an interesting twist to the commentary during the match? Well, a similar incident happened during the T20 match between World XI and West Indies on May 31 when the commentator Nasser Hussain took the commentary of the match to the next level.



The match was between West Indies and World XI at Lord’s for Hurricane Relief T20 Cricket Challenge aimed at raising money for development of five cricket ground in the Caribbean that got damaged by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.



Apparently, the former English captain and commentator Nasser Hussain took the commentary on-the-field during the first over where he was reporting the match straight from the field. While the match was broadcasted live on ICC’s Facebook account, Nasser was doing the commentary from the slips as the cricketers were playing the match. According to reports, ICC was trying something ‘new’ with Nasser’s different attempt at doing commentary, but it seemed like he was interfering in the match.



Evidently, this ‘new’ sting by Nasser Hussain has raised a lot of questions among the cricket lovers and they took to their social media accounts to show their discontent with Nasser’s act.

People are slamming Naseer Hussain and ICC for ‘not taking the game seriously’.



Furthermore, netizens raised questions on the need to give T20 cricket an ‘international’ status. While they said that we can have World cup in every couple of years, they insisted that T20 should be more of a ‘domestic-based’ concept.

Take a look at some of the reactions:
