The Rajasthan Royals endured a tumultuous start, losing both their opener Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler during the powerplay. However, Sanju Samson and Riyan Parag provided stability, guiding the team to 43/2 by the conclusion of the powerplay.

Their partnership thrived, steering the side to 73/2 after 10 overs. Parag achieved a fifty from just 34 deliveries, boosting the score to 134/2 alongside the Rajasthan skipper following a resilient partnership of 92 runs.

Nevertheless, the game encountered an interruption in the 17th over due to umpiring confusion, leading to frustration from the Gujarat skipper.

During Mohit Sharma’s delivery on the final ball of the 17th over, an umpiring mistake occurred when Vinod Seshan signaled a wide, prompting an immediate challenge from Gill. As the players awaited the third umpire’s decision, chaos ensued.

Initially ruling it as a fair delivery, the third umpire, K Ananthapadmanabhan, swiftly corrected himself, declaring it wide, assuming the on-field umpire had already indicated so. Gill’s dissatisfaction was palpable as he confronted Seshan about the decision.

The incident triggered discussions across social media platforms, with the Twitterverse expressing dismay over the third umpire’s bewildering blunder.
