“DC Do Not Stand For What Happened.” Says DC Assistant Coach Shane Watson of Pravin Amre entering the field during the RR vs DC clash. Shane Watson, assistant coach of the Delhi Capitals, not please with Pravin Amre entering the field. Stating that the umpire’s decision, whether correct or incorrect, must be accepted.
The Rajasthan Royals defeated the Delhi Capitals by 15 runs on Friday at Wankhede Stadium. But the game became a major talking point because of what happened in the final over of the game. When Delhi needed 36 to win. Rovman Powell hit three sixes off the first three balls, but the third delivery of the over was a full toss. Which the Delhi Capitals camp mistook for an over-the-waist no-ball. After the on-field officials failed to call it and did not refer it to the third umpire, Delhi Capitals assistant coach Pravin Amre walked out onto the field to speak with the umpires.
DC assistant coach Shane Watson: it was a disappointing incident and that this is now what the franchise stands for.
“Yes, what happened in the last over was extremely disappointing. We were unfortunate to be in that position in the game; we had not been able to put things together for a long enough period of time in that game up until that point. In the end, what happen is something that the Delhi Capitals will not tolerate. We must accept the umpire’s decision, whether it is correct or not. And we will not accept someone running on the pitch. It is insufficient “remark Watson in response to an NDTV question during the virtual post-match press conference.
“The game, in my opinion, is controlled by the umpires. The IPL is fraught with pressure and tension. When you have a situation like that, things can go either way, but in the end, the umpires control the situation. And the game continued. That’s how I see it. I don’t believe I have the authority to say what is and isn’t acceptable. At the end of the day, it is the players who play, and the umpires have a difficult job calling the game, and our job as support staff is essentially to support the players and allow the game to be played “Sangakkara said in response to NDTV.
