5 Times MS Dhoni Went Against The Decision Of Umpires
5. CSK vs RR (IPL 2020)
This season is all about IPL 2020 in which we have witnessed cricket of the highest order. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been an ideal season for Chennai Super Kings as they struggled in the competition so far.
When CSK was facing Rajasthan Royals at Sharjah, Dhoni took a catch of Tom Curran which was signalled out on the field. However, when Curran was seen baffled with the decision umpire Shamsuddin had a polite enquiry with the short leg umpire.
The two after discussion went to the third umpire to check the catch which Dhoni claimed behind the stumps. Seeing this Dhoni was in the ears of the umpire in a flash and was probably asking the reason why they went upstairs with Royals having no reviews left.
The replays indicated that there was daylight between the bat and ball. On top of that, the catch Dhoni took also clearly bounced and touched the grass before settling into Dhoni’s glove. In the end, the right decision was made and the decision of out had to be overturned by Shamsuddin.
