Rarest of rare incidents takes place in ongoing TNPL 2023


In the ongoing TNPL 2023, a very rare incident happened in the game between Dindigul Dragons and BA11sy Trichy.

In the game, both the batter and the bowler took a review on the same delivery to check whether Trichy player, R Rajkumar was out or not out.

Moreover, this incident took place in the first innings’ 13th over as Dragons’ Ravichandran Ashwin dismissed Rajkumar behind the wicket.

The umpire also dismissed Rajkumar instantly after Ashwin and the keeper appealed for the caught behind.

However, Rajkumar went straight up to check whether he was really out or not. The replays showed that the bat had touched the ground before the ball passed it.

Additionally, as the ball passed the bat, there was no nick or edge from the batter which resulted in the umpire reversing his decision to not out.

However, Ashwin was not satisfied with the decision and once again took another review. This made the umpire go over the process once again.

But, the replays continued to show the same thing as a result of which the decision stood not out.
