Appearance of' Blue Ball' confuses fans

There was also an interesting happening during the 2nd innings which left the fans confused. A mysterious blue layer was spotted on the ball when RR skipper Sanju Samson and Jos Buttler were batting. The blue layer was especially noticeable during the replays for a review call, when Samson was ruled out by umpire Anil Chaudhary before the call was overturned.

This emergence of the blue layer on the ball puzzled the fans who had no clue as to what it was. The analysts on Select Dugout mentioned that it could have been paint from the advertising board or ropes when Jos Buttler had smashed a six.
