1 min read

The dismissal of Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium on Friday in IPL 2020 Eliminator match has become a cause for controversy. Commentators and cricket pundits are unhappy with this decision. Actually Mohammed Siraj’s ball went to wicketkeeper AB de Villiers’ gloves while dodging Warner. Meanwhile, the ball seemed to have touched something, either the gloves or the trousers, but it was not clear. On-field umpire S Ravi gave not out to Warner while third umpire Virender Sharma on review gave Warner out after seeing replays several times.

Former New Zealand player Scott Styris said, ‘Incredible decision of third umpire. David Warner has every reason to be angry. The real decision was not out. There was no strong evidence to change this decision. Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar, who was commentating with Mabangwa, said that the umpire’s decision should be respected.
