Angry Kohli hits out at umpiring

Virat Kohli

Royal Challengers captain Virat Kohli slammed the umpiring standards after his team’s six-run defeat to Mumbai Indians here on Thursday.

Lasith Malinga’s no-ball off the final delivery went unnoticed by the umpire as RCB, requiring seven runs at that point, fell short.

“We are playing at IPL level, not club cricket ... that’s just a ridiculous call off the last ball. the umpires should have their eyes open, it was a no-ball by an inch,” Kohli fumed after the match.

“It’s a completely different game altogether. So if it’s a game of margins, I don’t know what’s happening. They should have been more sharp and more careful out there,” he said.

Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma also agreed the umpiring should have been better. “Honestly, I just got to know after crossing the rope that it was a no-ball. These kind of mistakes aren’t good for the game.

“The over before that Bumrah bowled a ball which wasn’t a wide but it was called,” said Rohit, praising the efforts of his bowlers in the end.
