Rishabh Pant And Umpires Matter Explained: Rajasthan Royals defeated Rishabh Pant led side Delhi Capitals by 15 runs on Friday. While batting first Rajasthan Royals put on a target of 222 with Buttler smashing a century again. Delhi Capitals were unable to chase the huge target and lost the match.

During the match, Rishabh Pant lost his cool during the last over of his team’s run chase where 36 runs were required.

A no-ball controversy arose in the match where Rishabh Pant, Shardul Thakur, and Pravin Tamre (coach) were seen breaching the IPL Code Of Conduct and have been fined.

What Happened Between Rishabh Pant And Umpires

Delhi Capitals required 36 runs off the final over. Rovan Powell was in good form and with his brute strength, hit Rajasthan Royals Obed McCoy for 3 sixes in a row requiring 18 from 3 balls.

The situation got worse when the third delivery was over the waistline and the umpire called it a legal delivery. According to the rule of cricket, any ball above the waistline is considered a no-ball.

When the third ball was given a legal delivery and the umpires were not referring to the third umpire, Pant lost his cool. The DC skipper asked Powell and the nonstriker Kuldeep Yadav to walk off the pitch.

Following an argument between two on-field umpires and batters, Pant sent assistant coach Pravin Amre onto the field after threatening to call his players off.

After the match, Pant said “I thought the no-ball could have been precious for us. I thought we could have checked that no ball but it’s not in my control. Yes, we are disappointed, but can’t do much about it. Everyone on the ground saw that. I think the third umpire should have intervened in between and said it was a no-ball, but I can’t change the rule myself I guess.”
