After the no-ball controversy in the RR vs. DC game, Rishabh Pant took a shot at the umpires and said THIS in IPL 2022.
In the RR vs DC IPL 2022 match, Rishabh Pant threatened to forfeit the game and asked both Powell and Kuldeep Yadav to leave the field following a controversial umpire decision.
After falling behind by 15 runs in the first innings to the Rajasthan Royals at Wankhede Stadium, the Delhi Capital skipper believes that a mistake by the on-field umpire was to blame.
The Delhi Capitals needed 36 runs in the final six balls, and Rovman Powell pounded Obed McCoy, a left-arm pacer, with six of the first two balls of the over. As Delhi Capital captain Rishabh Pant and his coaching staff put it, it was a no-ball when he hit a full toss ball for maximum in the third ball.
Pant threatened to forfeit the match if the on-field umpire didn’t give a no-ball and wouldn’t consult the third umpire, so he asked Powell and Kuldeep Yadav to leave the field.
“The no-ball, in my opinion, could have been extremely valuable to us. No matter how hard I tried, that no-ball was out of my hands. Yes, I’m bummed, but there’s nothing I can do about it. I thought it was a no-ball because everyone was so irritated that it wasn’t even close. That was obvious to everyone on the ground, as well. A no-ball should have been called by the third umpire, but I guess I can’t change the rule myself “, he said in the post-match presentation ceremony for Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant.
Nitin Menon and Nikhil Patwardhan refused to allow Praveen Amre, the assistant coach, to request that the on-field umpires go to the third official, despite Amre’s pleas.
“Although it was obviously wrong, what happened to us was also incorrect. Can’t do anything about it, it was just the heat of the moment. I believe both teams were to blame, not just ours, because throughout the tournament, we’ve seen some excellent umpiring. We could have done quite well from there, I suppose. A loss like this is particularly frustrating, especially when the other team has scored 220 runs. However, I believe our bowlers could have done a better job. You can’t escape it; it’s a given in the game. They need to keep their heads up and be ready for the next one, I can only tell them “When Pravin Amre took the field, Rishabh Pant had this to say about him:
For the fourth time this season, Delhi Capitals have lost in the Indian Premier League. For the first time this season, the Rajasthan Royals have won five of their first seven matches.
