IPL 2022: Umpires always play a big role in the game of cricket. The major decisions of the match are decided on a decision of the umpire. But in the current IPL, poor umpiring is being seen continuously, due to which the cricket fans are very disappointed. Especially in the match played between Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad (PBKS vs SRH) on Sunday, the umpire gave a very bad decision.
Umpire’s very bad decision
Very poor umpiring was seen in the match played between Punjab and Hyderabad (PBKS vs SRH). In fact, Shahrukh Khan, the sharp batsman of Punjab, was caught out by the umpire in the match, but the ball did not even touch his bat and gloves. This ball hit Shahrukh’s helmet and he had to prove the umpire wrong by taking a review. There is also a lot of criticism of the on-field umpire regarding this matter.
Given out for hitting the helmet
In fact, when the team of Punjab Kings was batting against Hyderabad, this incident happened in the 14th over of the innings. T Natarajan was bowling in this over and then a ball hit Shahrukh Khan’s helmet. The players of Hyderabad made a strong appeal and the umpire also raised a finger. Later, when Shahrukh took the review, it was found that the ball was not on his bat but on the helmet. With this, Shahrukh hit a great six on the very next ball.
Punjab team lost match
However, the Punjab team had to face defeat in this match. Sunrisers Hyderabad registered their fourth consecutive win in season 15. In the match played against Punjab Kings, Hyderabad won by 7 wickets. Umran Malik was the most successful bowler for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Umran took 4 wickets for 28 runs in 4 overs.
