Kings XI Punjab(PB) have registered an appeal with the match referee over the faulty ‘short run’ named by umpire Nitin Menon throughout Sun.’s close game between Delhi(DL) Capitals & Kings XI Punjab(PB). Franchise CEO Satish Menon argued that the call can “cost them a playoff location” & that there’s “no room for person faults like these in a world-class tournament like the IPL.”
What exactly happened?
The incident happened within the 3rd ball of the 19th over when Mayank Agarwal, after having slammed Kagiso Rabada for a boundary, stroked 1 to deep additional cover with the aim to pinch a couple. The job has been seemingly well finished however the square leg umpire felt that the 1st run was not finished by Chris Jordan in the wicketkeeper’s end, & consequently decided the 1st run short.
However the replays soon after recommended that Jordan had correctly grounded his own bat. With the match ending in a tie & afterwards a Super Over, when the batting side stopped on the unfair side of the result, the umpiring fault has resulted in passionate responses.
Just how has the umpiring call being got?
Nitin Menon’s umpiring fault has tragically becomes a hotbed of discussion, reigniting discussions across the character of technology in cricket, & just how it could play a greater character specially during the tournament.
Previous cricketers & experts commanded the conversation, with Kings XI co-owner Preity Zinta & CEO Satish Menon mincing no words.
“What is the point of technology in case it can’t be utilized?”, Preity tweeted. “It is high time BCCI presented new regulations. This can’t happen each yr..”
“Awhile a person fault could happen & we know that, there is no room for person faults like these in a world-class tournament like the IPL,” CEO Satish Menon has been quoted informing by PTI. “This 1 can cost us a playoff berth. A loss of a game is a loss of a game. It’s unfair. I hope the regulations are reviewed so that there is no margin for person fault.”
