With the advent of the Decision Review System, batters walking before the umpire raising their finger has become a rarity. However, it did happen during the Indian Premier League match between Lucknow Super Giants and Punjab Kings. While Quinton de Kock had edged one ball to the wicketkeeper, the on-field umpire did not raise his finger.

Although De Kock would have been well within his right to wait and see if the opposition captain asks for a referral, he chose to walk off. The gesture was appreciated by the bowler Sandeep Sharma after the Punjab pacer picked up the wicket in the 13th over of the match.

Here is the incident:

Until De Kock was out in the middle, Lucknow looked in course of a big first-innings score. However quick wickets in the middle overs meant Punjab Kings made a comeback and managed to restrict Lucknow to 153/8 despite an 85-run second-wicket stand between De Kock and Deepak Hooda for the second wicket. Kagiso Rabada was the pick of the bowlers for Punjab with his final figures reading 4/38 from 4 overs.
