Cricket“Shreyas Iyer should have called back Virat Kohli": Navjot Singh Sidhu

Srinagar: Former India cricketer Navjot Singj Sidhu has termed Virat Kohli’s controversial dismissal during KKR vs RCB, IPL 2024 clash as notout and has said that KKR skipper should have called RCB batter back.

In the match, Virat Kohli was surprised by Harshit Rana’s high full toss, which went up in the air after hitting the batter’s willow, and the bowler took an easy catch. He was declared out by the on-field umpire. The star player was not convinced and took a DRS.

The full toss was dipping, and Virat was standing outside the crease. After going through several replays, the decision of the on-field umpire was upheld by the third official. Kohli lost his cool and clashed with the umpire. He went angrily back to the dugout after scoring 18 runs off 7 balls, laced with 2 sixes and 1 four.

Sidhu, Varun Aaron, Wasim Jaffer and Irfan Pathan called it a wrong decision and slammed the umpire. Sidhu even lambasted KKR captain Shreyas Iyer.

“MS Dhoni recalled Ian Bell in one of the Test matches between India and England. He was given the ICC Spirit of the Cricket award. Umpire was wrong but where was Shreyas Iyer. He should have taken a call. The rule needs to change. The officials should take the point of contact into consideration and not the crease,” Navjot Singh Sidhu said on Star Sports.

The match went to the last ball, with Kolkata winning by 1 run to register their fifth victory.
