Cricket'Rishabh Pant should be fined…': Adam Gilchrist

Srinagar: Former Australia opener Adam Gilchrist has lashed out at Delhi Capitals skipper Rishabh Pant for arguing with umpired and has said that he should be fined.

The incident happened in the fourth over of Lucknow’s batting when Pant was spotted having a lengthy animated discussion with one of the on-field umpires. He looked visibly angry after Delhi lost a review on a wide-ball review off a delivery from Ishant Sharma to Devdutt Padikkal.

“I saw another example tonight where umpires need to take better control of games, and that is in any format. They just got to do a better job at moving things forward. There was a dispute over whether Rishabh had reviewed it. Okay, there was a miscommunication over the review call. But they stood there and spoke about that for 3-4 minutes. It’s a very simple conversation, I believe. No matter how much Rishabh is complaining or any other player is complaining, umpires should just say, ‘it’s over’ and quickly move on. But if he keeps talking, he should get fined,” the Aussie said.

It was later clarified by commentators Pommie Mbangwa and Deep Dasgupta that Pant was left vexed over no use of snickometer to check if there was an outside edge when the ball passed Padikkal’s bat.

Pant later starred with the bat, scoring a 24-ball 41, laced with four boundaries and two sixes, to help Delhi chase down 168 with 11 balls to spare. This was Delhi’s second win in IPL 2024.
