Debate Over Pant’s Behaviour Of Calling His Batsmen To Abandon The Match!!

Match number 34 that took place between Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals saw so much drama in the last over after Roman Powel smashed three back to back sixes when the required runs were 36. The third ball bowled by Obed Mccoy caused so much drama in the match as Delhi captain Pant decided to abandon the match by calling his batsmen back.


When six sixes were needed in the last over of McCoy, Powel sent first three balls to the stands effortlessly and gave a tiny bit of hope to the Delhi pavilion. The third ball of the over was threw at Powel without a bounce and it seemed to have faced at above the waist.

The whole Delhi dugout including Shane Watson and Rishabh Pant claimed for a no ball by signalling with their hand. No ball was not given by the onfield umpires as a result of which the Delhi dugout insisted in going for a third umpire review.

After the umpires refused to do so, Pant started calling his batsmen back to the paviliin in order to protest against the decision of the on field umpires. Pravin Ambre, coaching staff of Delhi capitals entered the field and argued with the umpire as well. However, an enraged Pant was calmed down by senior Australian cricketer Shane Watson to bring things back to normal.

Powel who missed his momentum, failed to meet the fourth ball and the match went to the RR way. In the last ball Powel got hit on the top edge of his bat and dismissed by McCoy as well. Rajasthan Royals led by Sanju Samson registered their fifth win in the tournament and grabbed the top spot in the table.

Post the match, the behaviour of 24 year old Pant became a subject to debate among the fans of cricket game. Many of the experts condemned the left hand batsman for not respecting the decision made by the umpires and called him out for his aggressive behaviour. Few even pointed out the rules of IPL which says that the no ball can be referred with the third umpire only if the batsman gets out.

In the meantime, a number of online users and cricket experts supported Pant saying that his anger is understandable. Glenn Maxwell, through his tweet, wondered how front foot no ball is checked for every delivery by the third umpire but not height no ball.
