The final over of the match between Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals witnessed high drama as Rishabh Pant and company were left fuming for what they deemed was a no-ball but not given by the on-field umpire. In the final over, Delhi Capitals needed 36 to win and Rovman Powell had smashed sixes on the first three balls. However, the third delivery of the over became a huge talking point. Rajasthan Royals pacer Obed McCoy bowled a full-toss and Powell had smashed it for a six. Delhi Capitals camp thought it was a definite no-ball and started gesturing towards the umpire for it to be called a no-ball.
Delhi Capitals skipper Rishabh Pant started gesturing towards the on-field officials Nitin Menon and Nikhil Patwardhan asking for the no-ball to be called.
He then focused his attention on batters Rovman Powell and Kuldeep Yadav and it looked like he was calling them off the field. Then Delhi Capitals’ assistant coach Pravin Amre walked out to the middle and had a word with the umpire.
When Amre was talking to the umpire, Rajasthan Royals batter Jos Buttler had walked towards to the Delhi Capitals dugout and had a word with Rishabh Pant as well.
