The umpire changed his decision after watching Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s reaction.

There was a dispute between Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad on the wide ball in the match played on Tuesday. A ball off stump from Chennai bowler Shardul Thakur was pitched out. Umpire Paul Rafael raised his hand to call it wide, but he immediately pulled back his hands after watching Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s reaction.

Hyderabad captain David Warner, who was sitting in the dugout on this incident, also looked unhappy. This umpire’s decision and Dhoni’s reaction is being trolled a lot on social media. One user wrote expressing displeasure that this shows Dhoni’s sporting spirit.

Controversy in the 19th over of Hyderabad innings
In the 19th over of Hyderabad’s innings, Shardul Thakur was trying to put a wide yorker. The second ball of this over was called wide by the umpire. After this, Shardul put the next ball on the same line. This time also the umpire raised his hands to call it wide, but he changed his decision after seeing the reaction of Shardul and Dhoni standing behind the wicket.

Washed troll

An angry user on social media shared the video and wrote that Chennai gets the Fair Play Award this time. Another user wrote that the umpire changed this decision after Dhoni’s protest.

One user wrote that it was entirely the umpire’s fault because Dhoni has every right to protest. The other user even accused CSK of match fixing.

According to IPL rule 2.12, the umpire can change his decision, provided it is done immediately. Apart from this, only the decision made by the umpire will be considered final.

There has been controversy over umpiring before
Earlier in 2018, during the match against Rajasthan Royals, there was a dispute between Dhoni and the umpires regarding the no ball. The ball from Rajasthan’s Ben Stokes was initially raised by umpire Ulhas Gandhe to point to a no-ball, but there was no indication from leg umpire Bruce Oxenford that the ball was above the waist because of a no. – The ball was not given. Angered by this, Dhoni came down on the field.

Kohli is also angry
In 2018 itself, there has been a dispute about umpiring in the match played between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore. RCB needed 7 runs off the last ball in that match. But despite Malinga’s leg being off the line, umpire S Ravi could not see it and Bengaluru lost by 6 runs. If umpire Ravi called this ball a no ball, then RCB would have got one more extra off a ball as well as a free hit. RCB captain Virat Kohli looked very angry with this.
