IPL: Poor umpiring caused a stir
In the IPL, there was an uproar over poor umpiring while senior umpire Nathan Menon called for a wrong ‘short run’ to deprive Kings XI Punjab of victory.
Controversy has erupted since the start of the IPL due to poor umpiring. A terrible mistake by Nitin Menon led to the failure of Kings XI Punjab in the match against Delhi Capitals.
Mayank Agarwal scored 2 off the third ball of the 19th over but Square League umpire Menon ruled that second batsman Chris Jordan did not take the first run and put the bat inside the crease, so it is a short run and Agarwal has just one run. Will get It was clear from the replays that Jordan had completed the run correctly.
Kings XI suffered the same one-run deficit when Agarwal equalized with 12 off the first three balls of the last over, but Marcus Stevens bowled both him and Jordan off the last two balls, leaving the match in a superpower. Kings XI Punjab lost. The failed team formally appealed against the short-run decision to match referee Javagal Srinath, saying the decision could be a threat to their play-off position, although it is a human error and we understand it, but like the IPL. This cannot be expected at a world class event, hopefully the rules will be changed. It should be noted that in both ICC and IPL rules, the umpire can approach the third umpire only in case of out or unclear boundary
