The incident happened on the ball in the 15th over as Avesh Khan hit DK on the pads and the referee did not hesitate to raise his finger. Dinesh Karthik walked towards the non-striker, Mahipal Lomror and sent the decision for review.

Replays showed a spike on UltraEdge when the ball was next to the stick. What appeared to be the bat hitting the pad, the third umpire was convinced otherwise and called for the on-field decision to be overturned.

Dinesh Karthik himself was disheartened by the decision as Avesh and his RR teammates couldn't believe what had just happened.


Experts are not happy


Sunil Gavaskar reasoned based on a comment that if DK had actually hit the ball with his bat, he would be the first to know about it and would not have gone to Lomror to ask his opinion.

Meanwhile, Kumar Sangakkara looked furious and approached to argue with the umpires.

“Dinesh Karthik was clearly absent. Absolutely shocking decision,” Ravi Shastri said in a comment.
