Glenn Maxwell Posts Barack Obama Meme Following No-Ball Controversy in IPL 2022. As the game between the Delhi Capitals and the Rajasthan Royals ended in controversy. Australia and Royal Challengers Bangalore all-rounder Glenn Maxwell took to Twitter to express his thoughts on the entire situation.
The DC and RR clashed in the final over, with the former expressing their displeasure with umpiring decision. Rovman Powell took the game to his compatriot Obed McCoy, hitting him for three sixes off the first three deliveries with DC needing 36 runs off the final over. The third six resulted from a waist-length full-toss. However, the on-field umpires did not call it a no-ball, which would have given DC an extra run and a free hit on the next pitch.
DC captain Rishabh Pant and assistant coach Pravin Amre were visibly upset by the decision of the on-field umpires.

Amre also ran onto the field to speak with the on-field umpires about it.
