The no-ball controversy during the match between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur made cricket lovers across the world realize that even Mahendra Singh Dhoni is human. The cricketer who is known to be Captain Cool not only lost his temper but behaved in an unusual manner.
With the 3rd Ball of the 20th Over, RR Bowler Ben Stokes bowled MS Dhoni with a percent yorker. CSK need to score 8 runs in the last three balls to win the match.
Thereafter, CSK Player Santner received a waist-high full toss but the Umpire hasn't declared it as no-ball. Non-striker Ravindra Jadeja has protested the decision of the Umpire. Dhoni who was in the dug-out stepped on the field to complain about the no-ball issue. Still, The Square Leg Umpire Bruce Oxenford remained firm on his decision.
Miscommunication between the two on-field umpires led to the whole issue. Though it's a mistake, Dhoni coming on the field to have a discussion with Umpires is unacceptable. BCCI fined Dhoni 50 percent of his match fee for the violation. As per ICC Rules, Any Cricketer who objects the decision of an Umpire will face suspension for 1 Test and 2 ODIs.
Former Cricketers told they have never seen a Cricketer or Skipper behave in such an unacceptable manner during a match. Sehwag told, 'Dhoni deserves suspension for 2 ODIs for what he did. I would have been happy had if he did that as a Team India Cricketer. Never did he showed so much anger while playing for India. Imposing Fine is a small punishment. He should have been suspended for one or two matched so that no other cricketer will do such things'.
Ganguly responded on the incident in this manner, 'Everyone is human. It's an unusual incident. His competitiveness is remarkable'.
