WATCH : Frustrated KL Rahul’s animated argument with umpire over wide call


Chennai Super Kings capitalized on Ruturaj Gaikwad’s maiden century as captain and a dynamic fifty from Shivam Dube to set a formidable target of 210/4 against Lucknow Super Giants at Chepauk.

Lucknow’s bowlers leaked 48 runs in the final three overs, triggered by Yash Thakur’s wide delivery, which ignited a heated exchange between KL Rahul and the on-field umpire.

Thakur’s delivery, aimed as a yorker wide of the stumps, tempted Dube into an ambitious shot, only for the ball to sail over his bat into Rahul’s gloves.

Despite Rahul’s immediate applause for the bowler’s accuracy, the umpire controversially signaled a wide. Rahul promptly approached the umpire for clarification, leading to a spirited discussion before the Indian captain resorted to a DRS review.

However, the review upheld the umpire’s decision, ruling that the ball marginally missed the tramline, leaving Rahul visibly frustrated. Given Rahul’s typically composed demeanor, social media erupted with reactions to his rare display of irritation.
