With the guarantee of close finishes and nail-biting moments, the tournament is surrounded by controversies as well. In a big tournament like the IPL, each team/ player wants to excel in their craft and has a desperate urge to secure the victory.
In this attempt, the players are involved in a spat with their counterparts or their teammates. The decisions of the umpires also has a key role to decide the outcome of the match, and if it’s not in the favour of the respective player, they express their dissent in their own way.
We bring to you seven of such instances which caught limelight during the ongoing IPL 2022.
1. Marcus Stoinis outburst in LSG vs RCB match
In a chase of 182 against RCB, LSG needed 34 off 12 balls, with Marcus Stoinis and Jason Holder at the crease. On the first ball of the over, Stoinis shuffled from his crease, while Hazlewood delivered a yorker just beside the tramline, which was presumed as a wide, but the umpire signaled it as a legal ball, which left the all-rounder fuming. On the next ball, he tried to slog sweep, but the ball brushed the pads and rattled the stumps and he displayed his angry reaction towards the umpire for his wrong decision.
