The 12th edition of IPL is currently in its third week and has got a fair amount of controversies too. There has been super over to one-sided games and also lots of entertainment and thrill for the audience.
The biggest controversy of this year’s IPL should be the Mankading saga. This took place in the 4th game when KXIP’s Ravichandran Ashwin ‘mankaded’ RR’s Jos Buttler. The English batsman had a heated conversation with Ashwin before departing.
Another controversial incident happened in the 7th game which was the no-ball gate. MI’s Lasith Malinga delivered a no-ball in the last delivery which the umpires missed. It led to the defeat of RCB and they lost two points.
Game should be bossed by captain : Raja
Former Pakistani cricketer Ramiz Raja has now raised an interesting topic. He has said that the coaches shouldn’t be allowed to interfere in the on-field decisions. Raja tweeted his concerns in Twitter and expressed his disagreement with the laws of IPL.
“#IPLT20 Pisses me off when I see coaches taking the lead role in talking to the players in the huddle in the ground when this game is built to be bossed, directed and lead by captain especially when he has entered the 75-meter ground.. that’s his domain.” The 56-year old tweeted.
Here is the tweet:
From the tweet it can be implied that Raja is signalling towards the RCB management. During the 17th match between RCB and KKR, RCB coach Ashish Nehra was seen giving tips to Tim Southee.
RCB lost the match due to the carnage of KKR’s Andre Russell. Raja didn’t clearly mention about whom his tweet was directed to. But it can be clearly understood that it was meant for RCB.
