IPL 2021 Harsha Bhogle justifies tv umpire decision to give wide in dc vs sck match Sunil Gavaskar

Dubai. On Monday, Delhi Capitals defeated Chennai Super Kings in a match of IPL 2021. But in the last over of Delhi’s innings, former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar questioned and criticized the T20 umpire for giving a ball wide instead of a no-ball. But commentator Harsha Bhogle justified the umpire’s decision citing MCC rules.

During the match, the second ball of the 20th over was bowled by CSK fast bowler Dwayne Bravo outside the off-stump. The ball was off the pitch. In such a situation, the players of Delhi Capitals took one run off the ball while one run was found as wide. But Gavaskar said that it should have been a no-ball, so that the batsman would get the next ball as a free-fit. Such decisions can change the result of the match.

Harsha Bhogle’s tweet.

right decision as per rule

Harsha Bhagle wrote on social media, ‘I spoke to a big umpire to clarify these things. In fact yesterday’s decision of wide was the right one as the ball didn’t land before reaching the stumps. He also put a copy of the rules of the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), the law-making body of cricket. According to this, a ball that falls completely or partially outside the pitch during batting is given a no-ball. But Bravo’s ball went behind the wicket without a tap. For this reason he was given a wide ball under the rule.
