VIDEO: Controversy stood up again, Umpire’s didn’t allow Rinku Singh to take DRS
Questions were raised about umpiring on several occasions in IPL 2022 and this trend continued in the match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders when once again a controversy arose over the decision of the umpire. This incident happened when Rinku Singh was batting and he got out after scoring 5 runs in 6 balls.
However, when Rinku was out, once again put the umpires in the dock. This incident happened in the 12th over of KKR’s innings when Rinku Singh completely missed the third ball of this over from T Natarajan and Natarajan’s yorker went to his feet. After this, the Hyderabad players appealed for LBW but the umpire raised his finger after a long time, taking a test of the patience of the Hyderabad players.
After being given out, Rinku Singh started talking to his teammate Sam Billings for review and instead of Rinku, Billings showed the signal of review but under the rules, the umpire did not accept it and in this affair, Rinku Singh was too late and DRS 15 seconds have passed since taking it. After the time was up, the on-field umpire did not allow Rinku to take the DRS.
However, Rinku too was in a mood to argue and he too was not ready to return to the pavilion. However, during this, the umpire explained to Rinku several times and in the end, Rinku made his move to the pavilion. During this entire incident, KKR coach Brendon McCullum was also seen talking to the fourth umpire. However, now talking about the other side of this incident, even if Rinku Singh had taken the review, it would have been bad because he was out.
