Summary

  • Chennai: Reflecting on the no-ball controversy that left Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohi seething, Chennai Super Kings coach Stephen Fleming Saturday said he was all for umpires making correct decisions but does not also want too much dependence on big screen replays.
  • Kohli had came down heavily on umpire S Ravi in RCB’s IPL match against Mumbai Indians on Thursday after the final delivery bowled by Lasith Malinga turned out to be a ‘no-ball’ but was not awarded to the Bangalore-based side which lost the game by six runs.
  • The India captain had made a scathing comment that IPL was not club cricket and umpires should keep their “eyes open”.
  • The flip side is you don’t want to interfere with the rhythm of the game and you don’t want the game to be too much dominated by looking at the big screen,” Fleming said ahead of CSK’s match against Rajasthan Royals on Sunday.
  • The wicket for the IPL opener between CSK and RCB came in for criticism after it produced a low-scoring game.
