The BBL was again tarnished by referees when the cricket icon Shane Warne asked the competition for the DRS system

Both players and fans were in disbelief after two shocking decisions within five deliveries in the Adelaide Strikers innings versus the Perth Scorchers

The decisions dampened an otherwise brilliant performance by the Strikers, who had 71 winners after bowling the Scorchers for 94 after an 8: 165 win in the first innings

Afghan star Rashid Khan, recently crowned T20I cricketer of the ICC Men of the Decade, was involved in the first incident that took place in the 18th century Century occurred

Against Scorchers Paceman Jhye Richardson, Khan was pounded on the pads with a Yorker who was looking for all the money before the umpire didn’t hand it out, much to Richardson and the comment team’s disbelief

“How could you not put that out?” Ex-Aussie star Andrew Symonds said on a comment for Fox Cricket

Just four balls later, Richardson and the Scorchers made a decision when he held Matt Short LBW prisoner with a similar delivery, just for reps to show that Short had hit the ball

“I think all they have to do is sit down and use the technology that is out there that can’t go on, it doesn’t look good for the game – and there is technology out there that they can use to turn it off”

The two referee howls continued their at times absurd portrayal of the referees, and the teams could not use the DRS system that is common around the world

“I’m sorry, but who is responsible for the referees in Australia? We see terrible mistakes every game (and) it’s embarrassing to finish the BBL,” tweeted Shane Warne

“The Big Bash is a wonderful tournament, but it quickly becomes a joke and could ruin players’ careers. Please can we have DRS right now!”

Warne was nowhere near the only person on social media to blow up referee howls over the latest pair of umpire howls
