Video: Yusuf Pathan shows dissent to the umpire, Rahane interferes
During a first round of the ongoing 86th season of the Ranji Trophy game between Baroda and Mumbai in Vadodara, experienced Baroda all-rounder Yusuf Pathan refused to make his way back to pavilion after umpire raised his finger. Yusuf Pathan was not at all happy with the decision and hence he showed dissent to the umpire.
The drama unfolded when Pathan seemed to have edged delivery from Mumbai spinner Shashank Attarde to short-leg. With all the Mumbai fielders appealing confidently in unison, the umpire had no doubts in mind and instantly ruled Yusuf Pathan out.
On the contrary, Yusuf Pathan, who thought of the decision otherwise, continued to remain at the crease. However, the opposition players celebrated the wicket and as Yusuf Pathan showed no sign to leave the ground, the on-field umpires started to discuss among themselves.
Amidst this drama, Mumbai batsman Ajinkya Rahane had to walk towards Pathan. The duo was seen talking about the dismissal in a contradictory manner. After Mumbai wicket-keeper batsman Aditya Tare got involved in between Pathan and Rahane, Pathan eventually decided to walk back to the pavilion.
