Wadia expressed his views after KXIP appealed towards on-field umpire Nitin Menon’s controversial ‘quick run’ name at a crunch time of the sport held on Sunday in Dubai.
Before the match went into Super Over, the TV footage confirmed that sq. leg umpire Menon had erred in calling Chris Jordan for a ‘quick run’ within the third ball of the 19th over, bowled by Kagiso Rabada.
The TV replays confirmed that Jordan’s bat was contained in the crease when he accomplished the primary run, ranging from the non-striker’s finish.
“It is exceedingly unfortunate that today with tremendous use of technology, we still do not use technology to ensure the total fairness and transparency in cricket game like several other leagues across the world including EPL, NBA, etc,” Wadia stated.
“I would request BCCI to ensure better umpiring and to ensure henceforth that technology is used to the maximum so as to ensure fairness and transparency in a game which is used across the best leagues in the world.”
The quick run name was not reversed regardless of technological proof that it was a improper name. In the ultimate over, Punjab wanted 13 runs to win and Agarwal managed 12 runs within the first three balls. If that one ‘quick run’ was credited to their complete, Punjab would have received with three balls to spare however they misplaced two wickets within the ultimate two balls after a dot fourth ball and it spilled to a Super Over, which they misplaced.
“VAR has become something which is used across the world. The game of yesterday in question between Kings XI and Delhi had two umpiring mistakes which cost KXIP the game,” Wadia stated.
“The first got here within the first few overs of the match the place a leg bye went for 4 and it was given as leg bye by the umpire however it was truly a large ball. That one run would have helped Kings XI win the sport versus shedding.
“The second disastrous determination got here on the finish of the sport within the final couple of overs, when a run was deemed as not being a run regardless that TV replays confirmed that it had been a run. Unfortunately, these two choices price Kings XI the sport.”
Wadia hoped the BCCI will tweak the IPL rule e book to make sure the incident will not be repeated.
“I do hope that BCCI implements a system and course of in order that the opposite groups don’t undergo the identical plight as Kings XI did yesterday. If expertise is to not there be used for the equity and transparency of the sport and to make sure that it’s equitable to all, then why use expertise in any respect?” he requested.
