IPL 2019, SRH v CSK: So what really happened? Ravindra Jadeja got into a heated argument with the umpire after the umpire did not call the fifth ball of the final over wide after it had gone above his shoulders. Jadeja argued that the umpire had already called ‘one- bouncer’ for the over. So if that was the case, Jadeja insisted that the second bouncer should have been a wide. Finally, the on-field umpire stood by his decision and did not call it a no-ball. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the bowler who was bowling the all-important last over. Jadeja eventually ended up with an uncharacteristic 20-ball 10* runs as CSK set SRH a paltry 133 to win.
Here is the moment in the final over that created a controversy:
Ravindra Jadeja (10*) and Rayadu (25*) struggled in the death overs on a slow Hyderabad pitch and they couldn’t score many boundaries as the visitors would have liked. The SRH bowlers were disciplined towards the end of the innings and gave just 30 runs in the last five overs. Rashid Khan with two wickets for 18 runs was the best bowler for SRH.
At the time of filing the copy, SRH was on course for a victory, thanks to Warner’s 25-ball 50 to give SRH a headstart. They were 76/2 in nine overs. Shankar and Bairstow are in the middle. This is a big match for SRH who are at the bottom of the points table. CSK is at the top of the table.
Brief score: Chennai Super Kings 132 in 20 overs (Faf du Plessis 45, Shane Watson 31; Rashid Khan 2/17)
