Unlike Captain Cool: MS Dhoni slammed for confronting umpire after no-ball controversy

Posted on

first_imgMS Dhoni became the first-ever player to win 100 Indian Premier League (IPL) as captain on Thursday when Chennai Super Kings piped Rajasthan Royals in a last-ball thriller in Jaipur. However, the major landmark was overshadowed by Dhoni’s uncharacteristic outburst at on-field umpires during the last over of a tense chase.Chennai Super Kings had needed 18 from the last over to secure a win in Jaipur. The visitors began the over well with Ravindra Jadeja hitting Ben Stokes for a six in the first ball but Rajasthan Royals pulled things back with the wicket of MS Dhoni in the third ball of the over.With 9 needed off the last three balls, New Zealand all-rounder Mitchell Santner walked out to bat for CSK. After Ben Stokes delivered the fourth ball of the over, on-field umpire Ulhas Gandhe signaled a no-ball for a waist-high full toss. However, Gandhe retracted his decision after leg-umpire Bruce Oxenford hinted it wasn’t a waist-high no-ball.Miffed with the lack of clarity from Gandhe, Dhoni stormed onto the pitch and confronted the umpire. Non-striker Ravindra Jadeja also joined the conversation but the revised decision stayed and Dhoni headed back to the dug-out disappointed.It was surprising to see Dhoni, known for holding his nerves even in the trickiest of situations, loose his cool and walk onto the pitch and have an intense argument with the on-field umpire.Several members from the cricket fraternity, including experts and former cricketers, have questioned Dhoni’s uncharacteristic act.While @msdhoni is right in saying what he is, he isn’t right in entering the ground and arguing his case.The umpire did signal a no ball.advertisementBoria Majumdar (@BoriaMajumdar) April 11, 2019This is not a good look for the game … No place at all for a Captain to storm onto the pitch from the Dugout … !! #IPLMichael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) April 11, 2019The umpire is well within his right to overturn a No-Ball or any decision on the field for that matter. Surprised with how Dhoni handled it. It was so unlike Captain Cool #RRvCSKHemang Badani (@hemangkbadani) April 11, 2019No ball or not, WHAT ON EARTH IS MS Dhoni doing walking on to the field once he’s dismissed. Bizarre this. Weak weak umpiring. #RRvCSKRaunak Kapoor (@RaunakRK) April 11, 2019Umpiring standards have been pretty low in this #IPL and that was a no-ball given and reversed. Enough to feel crossed and miffed. But the opposition captain has no right to walk out on the pitch after being dismissed. Dhoni set a wrong precedent tonight. #RRvCSK #IPLAakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) April 11, 2019Granted that it was poor communication from the umpires, but it was in bad taste that #Dhoni stormed on to the field. Very surprised that Murali Kartik didn’t even ask him about it in the post-match chat #RRvCSK #RRvsCSK #IPL2019 #IPL #IPL19Arun Venugopal (@scarletrun) April 11, 2019Someone needs to tell MSD that the umpire isn’t Deepak ChaharSiddhartha Vaidyanathan (@sidvee) April 11, 2019MS Dhoni storms onto field to argue with umpire. Never seen that before. Should have got bigger fine than half his match fee https://t.co/iWadwcgMHxPeter Lalor (@plalor) April 11, 2019MS Dhoni has been fined 50 per cent of match fees for violating code of conduct, that is for trying to intimidate the umpire. It’s time for other captains to keep walking on to the turf and interrupting the game #IPL #RRvCSKAmol Karhadkar (@karhacter) April 11, 2019Since the celebrations are almost done, want to say this. Disappointed as an MSD fan that My Captain Cool lost his calm and entered into the ground. Not at all cool. #DefinitelyNotADhoniThing #CSK #CSKvRRVamsi Kaka (@vamsikaka) April 11, 2019Doesn’t anyone feel it was utterly disgraceful for the captain of the batting team to walk out on the field to argue with the umpires? No? Ok. Me alone, then. #CSKvKXIP #MSDhoni #SpiritOfTheGameSuhrud Godbole (@suhrudgodbole) April 11, 2019Today MS Dhoni has turned captain uncool. Umpire maybe wrong, but you don’t expect Dhoni to behave that way.Shantanu N Sharma (@shantanunandan2) April 11, 2019Level of umpiring in @IPL has seriously gone so low! Never seen @msdhoni losing his cool & heading to the field to argue with umpires! That’s a first! #IPL2019 #CSKvRRTridib Baparnash (@TridibIANS) April 11, 2019Eventually, Dhoni was fined 50 per cent of his match fee after his outburst.
