Rajasthan Royals took on Delhi Capitals in the 34th match of IPL 2022 season. While chasing the mammoth target of 223, Delhi capitals fell short by 15 runs. However, the match witnessed an interesting controversy in the last over of the match. This spiced up things in the match and became a hot topic on the internet.

Delhi Capitals needed 36 runs to win in 6 balls with Obed Mccoy bowling the final over. Powell smashed the first 3 balls for 3 sixes. However, third ball grabbed the limelight of all cricket fans. McCoy bowled a waist height full-toss which DC batter Rovman smashed for a six. On field umpire Nitin Menon didn’t call it a no – ball and neither he consulted 3rd umpire to check if it is a no ball.

Pant stood up and tried to call back his batters to the dugout after the umpires did not check for a waist-high delivery. Delhi Capitals captain even sent assistant coach Pravin Amre to settle the dispute on ground. But these actions of Pant weren’t taken lightly by people on internet and they slammed the DC captain for his irresponsible behaviour.

Here are some of top twitter reactions on it :

 

 

 

Delhi Capitals team management didn’t look happy with this decision of the umpire and they expressed their displeasure against it. All of them in DC team management wanted the on field umpire to refer to the third umpire for checking the no- ball. However, the on-field umpire stood firm on his decision.
