In cricket, some decisions are often taken by the umpires, which creates a lot of controversy. Also, the decision is discussed worldwide. Something similar has now happened in the Tamil Nadu Premier League. During one match the field umpire did not refer the decision to the third umpire despite the ball hitting the stumps directly. This caused the second team to face defeat later. Because, when that batsman should have been dismissed, he rained 34 more runs for the team. So, let’s know about it in detail…
The 18th match of the TNPL tournament was played between Salem Spartans vs Lyca Kovai Kings. In this match, Spartans won the toss and decided to bowl. This time S Sujay hit the fourth ball of the third over bowled by Abhishek Tanwar of Kowai Kings team. This time the ball went towards forward point. From there the fielder hit the ball, which went straight to the stumps. This time Sujay was at the non-strike end, but when the ball hit, he was inside the crease. However, his leg was in the air.
In this case, the field umpire felt that he had reached inside the crease properly. The appeal of the players was not accepted and the match was allowed to continue. However, watching the replay after a few minutes raised everyone’s eyebrows. Because, Sujay was eliminated. Had he been out at the same time, he would have had to make the tent on 10 runs. However, when he was dismissed and returned to the tent, his score was 44.
“It was out, why wasn’t it referred?” 😱

S Sujay created a huge gap in the innings. After that Laika Kovai Kings team achieved a big victory. Because, this time Kowai Kings scored 199 runs losing 8 wickets in the stipulated 20 overs while batting first. Chasing this challenge, the Salem Spartans team could only score 120 runs in 19 overs losing all wickets. So Kovai Kings team won by 79 runs. However, the umpire’s decision was the turning point of the match. (cricketer s sujay was run out but was not referred to 3rd umpire in tnpl)
In the Lord’s Test, the result of the toss returned to the England side, the Kangaroo’s ace team
