Chennai Super Kings (CSK) defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by 20 runs to stay keep their chances for playoffs realistic. In the position CSK is currently, they have still a long way to go and every point matters to them.
Every run counts for CSK as they have to take care of the run-rate too. While defending 168 runs, CSK restricted SRH to 147/8 in 20 overs, but they also triggered a debate on social media.
It was the 19th over of SRH's when MS Dhoni and Shardul Thakur questioned umpire Paul Rieffel over his wide call, and he instantly changed his decision.
Twitter was unhappy over Dhoni's reaction to the call and they accused the CSK captain of bullying the on-field umpire. Although the decision didn't make much difference as the result wasn't affected by it, but fans believe Dhoni can't get away with it every time.
Many fans also came in support and explained it's not the first time a player has reacted to the decision. They added that Dhoni's reaction came at the heat of the game and it was natural considering how desperate CSK is currently for a win.
