Man Vs Machine !!!

Fans wave the Indian flag during a match again...



When cricket started,there were no provisions for third empire and other electronic gadgets for calculating speed,direction or any other facility was provided.But still Cricket went all through decades to make people cricket maniac.In India cricket became far more than just a game…it beacme a religion.Everyone sat together,with no discrimination and cheered for Men In Blue.With the advancement of technology,TV empires came up,many electronic devices came up to reduce basically the human error of judging the batsman out or not.So as to decrease the cases of partiality or any other discrimination.
But ,unfortunately with the advancement the human errors also increased,atleast for the Indian Side though.Men In Blue became prey to many Australian umpires and were started to rely totally on machine rather than the well-trained humans…Initially,wrong decisions were taken as a part of the game.But as the frequency increased,the anger,frustration too started to swirl in the minds of Indian fans as well as in Men In Blue. Repeated avoidable mistakes lead to thought of discrimination and hate.

Recently MS Dhoni was caught in the trap which resulted in apologising of ICC to Indian Cricket Team.
Till the end,the questioned remain the same “should we replace human decisions by that of machines every time or not ?”
