I never had any problems with umpires: Joe Root


England in-form batsman Joe Root said that he has never had a  issue with umpires in any game also added that every player needs to accept their fault if they have done and the same condition applies for the umpires.

The third and final T20I of the three-match series against India will be played at the Chinnaswamy stadium in Bangalore on 1 February. On the eve of the game, Root told the reporters, “I never had any problems with umpires in any game. As a player, you can commit mistakes and you can get things wrong, and as an umpire, it is exactly the same. It will not be right to single any man as an umpire.”

Though Root said that it had been a semi-final of a big-ticket contest after that they would have been disappointed. He added, “If it had been a semi-final and we could not make it to the final due to a decision we would feel a bit disappointed as we have to live with it in the aftermath. But credit to Bumrah that he bowled so well in the death and defended seven runs in the last over.”

England captain Eoin Morgan demanded the DRS system during the second T20I game against India and he is very happy to see that introducing this format of the game. Root said, “Maybe it is nice to see DRS in this form of the game as well, but we are looking ahead for tomorrow’s match.”

Root said that this tour has been very tough for his side but they were played very good cricket against India up to now during the tour. He added, “It has been a tough tour, but we have enjoyed. We have played good cricket of late, but it will be nice to get a well-deserved win in tomorrow’s game.”

Root said on IPL auction, “The English players have made an impact including me and I expect everyone to make right moves to get themselves selected for the Champions Trophy.”
