Captain cool lost his ‘cool’

After Ravichandran Ashwin’s “Mankading” row, IPL 2019 witnessed another controversy in the form of M.S. Dhoni. On Thursday night in a game against Rajasthan Royals, MS Dhoni took a remarkable step of walking onto the field during the match.

A furious Dhoni lost his cool after the umpires failed to call a no-ball during the 19 th over of the match. He walked onto the field to argue the decision to not award his team CSK which was a waist-high no-ball. He argued with two on-field umpires and has to turn away to make his way back to CSK dug-out.

Here is the clip of the incident which took place during RR vs CSK.

Rajasthan Royals all-rounder Ben Stokes bowled final over with CSK needing 18 runs to win the match. All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja smashed a long six of the very first ball to make chase easier for CSK.

But eventually, CSK lost his captain on the third ball leaving Chennai team into disappointment. With eight runs required from three balls, Stokes attempted a slower ball which was waist high full toss. Then the straight umpire signaled a no-ball and soon the leg umpire intervened to withdrew the decision.

Dhoni, who was standing on the boundary ropes threw his hands up in the air and started walking up to the umpire to argue the decision.
However, Jadeja who was at non-striker’s end first confronted with the leg-umpire decision.

Despite, Dhoni’s protest, the decision made by field umpire stood, and Dhone made a way back to pavilion. However, Csk won the match, with Mitchell Santner hitting the winning runs for CSK in the last ball.

MS Dhoni has fined 50 percent of his match fees for his intervention onto the field to protest against umpire’s decision.

After the match, IPL officials passed a statement saying “MS Dhoni, the Chennai Super Kings captain, was fined 50 percent of his match fees for breaching the VIVO Indian Premier League’s (IPL) Code of Conduct during his team’s match against Rajasthan Royals at Jaipur. Mr. Dhoni admitted to the Level 2 offense 2.20 of the IPL’s Code of Conduct and accepted the sanction.” said by an official IPL statement.
