Jaipur: The Rajasthan Royals-Chennai Super Kings Indian Premier League (IPL) clash was marred by controversy as a furious MS Dhoni stormed to the field and angrily protested against the square-leg umpire’s decision of overruling a no ball off Ben Stokes delivery.
The incident happened during the fourth ball of the last over in CSK’s chase, when Stokes was bowling to Mitchell Santner. While on-field umpire Ulhas Gandhe declared it a no ball, square-leg umpire Bruce Oxenford ruled out the decision.
However, this was not the only incident that got the Twitterati talking.
Earlier in the same over, both on-strike batsman Ravindra Jadeja and Ben Stokes were seen to have lost balance.
While Stokes bowled a delivery wide towards the off-stump, Jadeja had to stretch the bat to play a pull shot. Eventually, in a video gone viral, both of them can be seen lying on the ground after that ball.
There were so many strange things in that 1 over FFS . That Jadeja six was crazy . That no ball is the first time in a long time I have seen a no ball when they didn't show a replay . Then the other no ball . Dhoni being an absolute idiot and then Stokes being stokes— AA (@Ayushxa) April 11, 2019
