Umpires told to be on their toes

Umpires told to be on their toes

IPL chairman Rajiv Shukla

Taking strong exception to a few umpiring howlers in the ongoing IPL, the league's chairman Rajiv Shukla has told the match referees to speak to the umpires about being more vigilant during matches.

"These things do happen sometimes but still the IPL chairman has spoken to match referees and asked them to speak to the umpires," a source close to Shukla said.

The match between Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad saw a seven-ball over two weeks ago.

There was a clear no-ball bowled during the game between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings on Sunday, but it escaped the umpire's attention.

To minimise errors, the umpires have apparently been advised to take the help of technology, if needed.
