WATCH: Viral Video of Rishabh Pant post match anger with Umpires | IPL 2022

In yesterday’s match between Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals, there was yet another IPL controversy over no-ball in the last over as Delhi Capitals lost to Rajasthan Royals by 15 runs at Wankhede Stadium.

Delhi Capitals Skipper was furious as his side’s unfinished business was stopped by the on-field umpires’ error regarding no-ball.

As the match came to the last over with 36 runs needed in the last six balls for DC. West Indies Rovman Powell strike six of the first two balls of the over.

With two sixes in a row again in the third ball, Powell again hit a maximum on the third ball but according to Delhi skipper, Rishabh Pant believed that the full toss was a no-ball. But the on-field umpire did not signal for a no-ball and refused to consult with the third umpire official.

A viral video shows that Delhi Captain Rishabh Pant was reportedly unhappy with the on-field decision and was ready to forfeit the match as seen in the video Pant asked both the on-field batsmen to come out of the field.

“I thought the no-ball could have been precious for us. I thought we could have checked that no-ball, but it’s not in my control. Yes, disappointed, but can’t do much about it.

“Everyone was frustrated because it was not even close, so I thought it was only a no-ball. Everyone on the ground saw that. I think the third umpire should have intervened in between and said it was a no-ball, but I can’t change the rule myself I guess,” said Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant in the post-match presentation ceremony.

Delhi Capitals Assistant coach Praveen Amre requested umpires to go to the third umpire officials but the on-field umpires Nitin Menon and Nikhil Patwardhan did not want to change their decision.

“Obviously, it wasn’t right, but what happened with us was also not right. It was just the heat of the moment, can’t do much about it. I think it was the fault of both the sides, not even only for us because throughout the tournament we have seen some good umpiring.

I thought we could have done pretty well from there I guess. It hurts more when you go so close, especially in a match when the other team has scored 220 runs, but I feel we could have bowled a little better. “It’s part and parcel of the game. I can only tell them to have their chin up and prepare for the next one right now,” said Rishabh Pant on Pravin Amre going onto the field.

With 4 defeats in 7 matches, Delhi Capitals now sits at sixth place in the IPL points table. Although, RR skipper Sanju Samson stated his opinion over the no-ball controversy.

“It went for a six, it was a full toss and the umpire gave it a normal ball. But the batsman wanted it as a no-ball. I think the umpire made his decision very clear and sticked to it.

Winning their 5th match of the IPL season, Rajasthan Royals sits right at the top of the IPL points table with 10 points.
