IPL 2020, DC vs KXIP: KXIP Appeal Against ‘Short Run’ Call, Players More Tech Technology Intervention
Kings XI Punjab have appealed against the controversial ‘short run’ call of on-field umpire Nitin Menon against the Delhi Capitals for lack of their IPL playing time as the former players seek more technical intervention for fair results. Before the match went to a super over, TV footage showed square leg umpire Menon calling Chris Jordan for a ‘short run’ off Kagiso Rabada off the third ball of the 19th over.
The TV replays showed Jordan’s bat was inside the crease when he started the first run from the non-striker’s end.
However due to the panic of KXIP, Menon indicated that Jordan had not completed the run and only one run was added to the total of Mayank Agarwal and Punjab team. The decision was not reversible despite technical evidence that it was a wrong call.
In the final over, Punjab needed 13 runs to win and Aggarwal scored 12 runs in the first three balls.
Had that single ‘short run’ been credited to their total score, Punjab would have won with three balls remaining, but they would have lost two wickets after the fourth ball in two balls and it would have spread to a super over. Was, which they lost.
“We have appealed to the match referee. While there may be a human error and we understand that, there is no room for such human errors in a world class tournament like the IPL. This one run cost us a berth.” Could. ” KXIP CEO Satish Menon told PTI.
“The loss of a game is the loss of a game. It is unfair. Hopefully the rules will be reviewed so that there is no margin for any errors.”
However, the appeal is unlikely to yield any result since Rule 2.12 (the umpire’s decision) in the IPL rulebook on the terms of the game, but states that “the umpire can change any decision provided that such changes Is made immediately. Also, an umpire is decided, once. Is a final. “
The former Australia all-rounder says that Tom Moody said that if technology was to help the game, the rules should be changed.
“Unfortunately such things are not thought of until this happens. Without a doubt the third umpire should have decided but what the rule says is that they need to declare that this is the rule before the tournament starts. Is part of, ”Moody told ESPN Cricinfo.
“It is clearly not part of the rules. Yes, no ball goes up and the third umpire runs-out and stomps on it, but they have not declared that there is any other incident like the third umpire. The on-field umpire is so until this happens we are not going to be fully engaged with the technology that is available. “
Former India batsman Sanjay Manjrekar also believes that the third umpire should have intervened.
“I was trying to make an accurate point of Decoram v. Commonsense because the third umpire intervened and told Menon that it was not small and Menon changed his decision. I don’t think anyone would have a problem with it. Because it was clear that the right decision was made, ”Manjrekar said.
Cricketer-to-commentator Akash Chopra also criticized the umpiring and that technique was not used to implement proper results.
Chopra said, “It was not a short time. Technology must be handled in these cases, but it is possible that what would happen if only the third umpire saw it. Thought.
KXIP co-owner and Bollywood actress Preity Zinta said the rules needed to be changed for the proper result.
“I have always believed in a win or lose and embellish in the spirit of the game, but it is important to ask for policy changes that improve the game for everyone in the future. The past has happened and it is small (important). ” To move forward. Positive as always and moving forward, ”he tweeted.
Former Indian batsman Virender Sehwag dismissed Menon at his call.
“I don’t agree with the man of the match choice. The umpire gave this short run,” read Sehwag’s sarcastic tweet.
Sehwag wrote, “Short run no thanh. And that was the difference.
Former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris called it a terrible decision but blamed KXIP for losing the match.
He said, “Horrible ‘a small’ decision in tonight’s @IPL game. However if you need 1 out of the last 2 runs and don’t win. You have yourself to blame,” he tweeted.
