SRH vs LSG IPL 2023: No-ball controversy erupts, Hyderabad crowd get involved with Lucknow dugout, LSG win by seven wickets

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Lucknow Super Giants: Lucknow Super Giants beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by seven wickets in Indian Premier League on Saturday. But it was the unruly behaviour of Sunrisers Hyderabad supporters that grabbed the limelight as play was halted after on-field umpires Akshay Totre, J Madangopal and TV umpire Yeshwant Barde earned the fans’ wrath for a poor ‘no-ball’ DRS call in the penultimate over of the first innings.

Avesh Khan bowled what looked like a beamer to Abdul Samad and Totre didn’t adjudge it a no-ball. SRH called for a DRS but to their horror, Barde also ruled it in favour of the bowling team. An angry Klaasen spoke to on-field umpires and suddenly one saw LSG head coach Andy Flower and mentor Gautam Gambhir along with others in dug-out, standing inside the boundary rope, pointing at the stands which is exactly behind their team area.

It seemed as if someone from the crowd had thrown something and there were collective chants of “Kohli Kohli” in their bid to rile Gambhir up in reference to his bust up with former India captain Virat Kohli earlier this month.
