IPL 2019: Cricketing world reacts as no-ball error cost RCB the match against MI

Posted On

With the technology available for every minutest detail of the game, a truly classic encounter between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Mumbai Indians (MI) ended on a sour note with the on-field umpire failing to call a no-ball off Lasith Malinga in the last ball of the match.


RCB needed seven runs to win off the final delivery but failed to do so. A fuming Virat Kohli called the incident ridiculous. The match was played at RCB’s home – M. Chinnaswamy stadium in Bengaluru.

However, outside of the controversial end of the game, if there was even a sliver of doubt whether Jasprit Bumrah is the world’s No. 1 bowler, he dispelled any such thoughts with an exceptional bowling performance in the death overs to steal a win for Mumbai Indians.


Here’s how the cricketing world reacted to the match:
