5 Controversial Dismissals In IPL History
5. David Warner’s dismissal against RCB In IPL 2020
In the last season, the much-fancied Royal Challengers Bangalore were facing the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Eliminator of IPL 2020. Batting first RCB had only managed to put 132 runs on the board and they were desperately searching for early wickets.
In the early stages, it seemed that SRH skipper David Warner had been caught behind as the entire RCB team pleaded for a caught behind. However, the umpire was unfazed as he felt that the ball brushed only the thigh pad of Warner and not the gloves.
The RCB skipper Virat Kohli straight away went for the review and replays indicated that Warner might have gloved the ball and he may well be going to the dressing room. After countless replays the third umpire found no conclusive evidence of the ball touching Warner’s glove but he overturned the decision of the on-field umpire based on a little spike on RTS and gave Warner out. This sparked a huge controversy as Warner was extremely upset while heading to the pavilion but RCB got a needed break-through.
