Dhoni loses temper after Umpire’s shocking decision
Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper MS Dhoni, who is known as the captain cool lost his temper after Umpire failed to judge a no-ball which was clearly above the waist high.
It is not too often when you see the CSK skipper losing his temper in the field, but the match number 25 in the Indian Premier League (IPL) witnessed the most unusual scene as Dhoni rushed to the field and argued with the umpires after they failed to a judge a no-ball in the last over when the men in yellow needed 18 runs off the last over.
It all happened during the fourth ball of the final over bowled by Ben Stokes with CSK needing 8 from 3. Stokes’s attempted slower ball turned into a full toss and was promptly called a no-ball by straight umpire Ulhas Gandhe.
Everything looked fine until Oxenford, the umpire at square leg, overruled the original decision and the CSK dugout became absolutely furious after seeing the decision.
After few seconds, Dhoni walked into the playing area to talk to the umpires and was pictured gesticulating about the original no-ball call. The umpires, without referring to the third-umpire, decreed that the full-toss would not have been waist-high and left CSK needing six from two balls.
However, it was the men in yellow in the end who were on the winning side as Mitchell Santner hit a stunning six out of nowhere to take CSK over the line.
This incident was quite similar to the match between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in the Nidahas Trophy where Shakib Al Hasan almost rushed to the field and asked his players to walk over after the umpire failed to judge a no-ball.
