Sunrisers Hyderabad progressed to the Qualifier 2 of IPL 2020 but one incident sparked controversy. It was SRH captain David Warner’s dismissal. Some felt it was a poor umpiring call that could have had a larger impact, although Hyderabad-based IPL team defeated RCB in the Eliminator in the end.
OUT or NOT OUT? David Warner’s controversial dismissal
The Aussie was given out, caught behind after a review by RCB. The third umpire took his time to relay the decision but the decision didn’t please all. As far as the rules are concerned, the third umpire needs a conclusive evidence to overturn the on-field umpire’s call, but the evidence was unclear.
After the decision, SRH captain was seen furious walking back to the dugout. Here’s the video of David Warner dismissal that sparked controversy:
After the controversial decision of David Warner, Kane Williamson and Jason Holder steadied the ship for SRH. The contest went down to the wire but the duo kept their calm in the chase. With the win, SRH has progressed to Qualifier 2 and will play Delhi Capitals on 8 November for a spot in IPL final. On the other hand, RCB are eliminated as they ended their tourney with five defeats on the bounce.
