Royal Challengers Bangalore needed seven to win off the final ball against Mumbai Indians. Lasith Malinga conceded only one run, against Shivam Dube who was on strike, but replays revealed that the on-field umpire S Ravi had missed spotting a front-foot no-ball. The mistake was criticised by both captains, and many in the cricketing fraternity called for the use of third umpire in no-ball calls.
I believe with the technology that's being used in cricket for different things what happened in the #MIvsRCB match highlighted that more should be done.— Brian Lara (@BrianLara) March 29, 2019
A quick call from the third umpire on the #noball would have been the right way to go and must be implemented going forward. pic.twitter.com/58lGfHJKJu
High quality cricket tonight. Wow!— Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) March 28, 2019
Yuvi, Hardik, Chahal, Umesh, Virat, AB, Bumrah & Malinga all taking the game to great heights, before it all came crashing down with that last ball no ball miss. Unforgivable mistake.#VIVOIPL2019 #RCBvMI
It would have been better if Shivam Dube was out on the last ball, seems like that is the only way umpires would have checked the #noball— Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) March 28, 2019
In the world of technology that we live in, a NO BALL like that should NOT happen!— Kevin Pietersen (@KP24) March 28, 2019
End Of Story!
Technology should be used much more often in cricket ... so many front foot no-balls missed all the time in all formats and only checked on dismissal. Should be as simple as 3rd umpire telling the umpire through ear piece that a no ball has been bowled.— Faf Du Plessis (@faf1307) March 28, 2019
They have to sort this out somehow. Difference between a win or a loss.— Kumar Sangakkara (@KumarSanga2) March 28, 2019
