Kevin Rudd tweeted 'that was one of the worst cricket umpiring decisions I have ever seen'

Khawaja was given out by on-field umpire Tony Hill for just a single in Australia's lunchtime 92 for two at Emirates Old Trafford, and then saw the decision endorsed by third official Kumar Dharmasena despite audio and video evidence which appeared to suggest it should have instead been reversed.

Within minutes, Rudd was moved to tweet: "I've just sat down to watch the Test. That was one of the worst cricket umpiring decisions I have ever seen."
