VIDEO: Umpire shocking Wide ball decision Stuns RR Players – Fans protest against Worst Umpiring

IPL 2022, Kolkata Knight Riders take on Rajasthan Royals in the 47th match of the ongoing season at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. The game went on to start with Iyer winning the toss and deciding to bowl first. The decision went in their favour as RR got a slow start losing their openers early. Though the RR skipper’s 52 helped the team to put a fighting total on the board. RR registered 152 for 5 in all their 20 overs.

Second innings started well for Rajasthan as they got the early wicket of Aron Finch. Indrajith also had to leave after a short time. KKR skipper anchored the innings with Nitish Rana and Rinku Singh finishing it off.

The penultimate over was bowled by Prasidh Krishna who conceded 17 runs when 18 were required in the last 12 balls. This over brought the match into the hands of KKR. But a sight of disappointment was seen by the decision of the on field umpire in the 5th ball which was given wide though the batsman had moved to his off chasing the ball trying to scoop it but missing it. Umpire signaled wide on that ball which made Sanju have a chat with the umpire. Frustrated skipper was seen enquiring about the wide delivery at which the umpire said if the ball is beyond the white line it’s a wide. Both Sanju and the umpire smiled at the end.

The next ball went for a boundary and left KKR only 1 run behind the victory line. The final six came from Nitish Rana off Kuldeep Sen and that got KKR their necessary 2 points to be on the race to playoffs.
