CPL: When the umpire did not give wide, Pollard said – are you blind? Big ruckus on the field!


New Delhi: Some strange activities are often seen on the cricket field. Many times players clash with each other in the middle of the match and sometimes these players mess with the fans sitting in the stands. But sometimes it is seen that the same players get entangled with the on-field umpires as well. Recently, Bangladesh’s star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan misbehaved with the umpire during a league match. Another similar case has now come to the fore.

This player clashed with the umpire

The Caribbean Premier League is currently being played in the West Indies. In the 9th match of this league, St Lucia Kings faced Trinbago Knight Riders. In this match, the team of Knight Riders won by 27 runs. But there was a moment in this match when Knight Riders captain Kieron Pollard clashed with the umpire. The umpire did not give a wide to a ball from Wahab Riaz and due to this, Pollard got angry.

drama on the field

In fact, in the 19th over of the Knight Riders innings, Wahab Riaz came to throw and he bowled the fifth ball quite out of wide. But the umpire did not give this ball wide and Pollard got angry on this matter. Pollard was at the non-strike end and Tim Seifert was at the batting end. As soon as the umpire did not give wide to Wahb’s ball, Pollard started talking to the umpire, but the umpire did not listen to him. Then he left his position and stood very close to the line of the circle of 30 yards. Batting first in this match, the team of Knight Riders scored 158 runs for the loss of 7 wickets. The team of St Lucia Kings could only manage 131 runs in the stipulated 20 overs for the loss of 7 wickets.

Shakib Al Hasan also argued

Let us inform that shortly before now, during a match of Dhaka Premier League, Bangladesh’s star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan also misbehaved with the on-field umpire. In fact, the umpire did not give out to the batsman on one ball of Shakib and on this matter he blew the wickets with his feet. Something similar happened once again and while arguing with the umpire, Shakib uprooted the stumps by hand. After which he had to apologize the most.
