Former India batsman Virender Sehwag slammed the umpiring throughout Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Capitals’ Indian Premier League (IPL) sport after Chris Jordan’s run was adjudged not full regardless of replays displaying the bat had crossed the road.

After the 20-over-per-innings match was tied at 157 runs, the Super Over was enforced and within the stress cooker scenario, Shreyas Iyer’s Delhi group prevailed on the Sharjah International Cricket Stadium.

During the 19th over of KXIP’s innings when Mayank Agarwal and Chris Jordan have been batting, the sq. leg umpire adjudged {that a} second run taken by England’s Jordan was not full.

Replays confirmed Jordan’s bat had crossed the road.

“I don’t agree with the man of the match choice. The umpire, who gave this short run, should have been man of the match. Short Run nahin tha. And that was the difference,” wrote Sehwag on his Twitter account.

Bowling first within the Super Over, Delhi’s South African pacer Kagiso Rabada stored his cool to snare two wickets and concede simply a few runs to KL Rahul’s group.

Chasing, Delhi simply hunted down the three-run goal to begin their marketing campaign with an exciting victory. IANS
