BCCI: In the recent matches of IPL, it has been observed that the level of Umpiring is quite low. First, in a match between RCB vs MI where umpire missed the No-ball which is Bowled by Lasith Malinga.

And now, controversy continued as in the recent between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore where Captain Ms. Dhoni was fined 50 percent of his match fees.

The incident happened at Sawai Mansingh Stadium when the match was on its last stage. With 9 runs required in 3 balls, Stokes delivered a full toss which was clearly above the waist height. The front umpire gave that a no-ball but leg umpire over-ruled the decisions. This made MS furious. He then stepped onto the field and pointed at the straight umpire, probably suggested that he raised the arm for No-ball(which he did). So for his actions, he was fined 50 percent of his match fees.

MS Dhoni entered the ground when the umpires changed the decision

The BCCI treasurer Anirudh Chaudhary confronted the media and said that ” Its Indian cricket and of course, everyone has a view and is entitled to it and that’s an expression of the passion for the game of cricket that makes Indian Cricket what it is. When MSD walked to the field. he would have done so in the complete knowledge that he will be fined. this was a violation and he has been punished and fined. that matter ends there”.

He also added that there must be some code of conduct for the umpire also as they are the Protagonist of the match.

He believes that there must be some sort of punishment for the Umpires as well. As there are punishments for the players when they breached the code of conduct there must be something for the umpires as well.

Anirudh added said it’s the responsibility of the umpires to maintain the high standards of the game. He also mentioned all the incidents with occurred till now.

“I mean when you review these games so far, you have the call regarding the “Browning” by Ashwin (i refuse to call it “Mankading” since Vinod Mankad had warned Bill Brown but despite the warnings, Brown chose to leave his ground), you have that no-ball being missed in RCB-MI game, you have Ulhas Gandhe signaling a no ball and then the square leg umpire Vehemently saying no and gandhe changing his decision. This is the  biggest and best franchise league in the world”

Anirudh believes that all issue must be solved immediately as this will affect the course of the game.

In response, BCCI official said the precautionary measures will be taken soon against the umpires.

“You invited the best of players from across the globe and then you see that howlers have become the norm” Anirudh added. He also believes that Mistakes in cricket at such a huge level is bad advertisement and curse to the game. Despite having an academy of umpires in Nagpur, how can they repeat the same mistakes again and again?
