Well, the first 3 balls of the last over were smashed for 3 back to back sixes by Rovman Powell. The third ball however appeared to be above the waist of the batter but the umpires did not call it a no-ball.

The same didn’t go down well with the captain of Delhi Capitals – Rishabh Pant, who was angry with the call and wanted the players to return if the no-ball was not checked. Eventually, things got settled between both the teams but Powell couldn’t connect the remaining 3 balls and DC lost the game by 15 balls.

Following the controversy, Pant was seen signaling his batsmen to walk off, which would have resulted in Rajasthan winning the game. Not just this, a member of DC’s coaching staff, Pravin Amre also entered the playing area to have a chat with the officials.

A good match between both the teams ended with an ugly controversy. The video of the same has been going viral on social media.
