New Delhi: Mumbai Indians won the last ball against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the IPL match played on Saturday. Mumbai Indians achieved the target of 219 runs off the last ball. Pollard won Mumbai by taking two runs off the last ball. Something happened on the last ball on which a controversy is seen.
Dhawal Kulkarni committed dishonesty
Australia’s legendary cricketer Brad Hogg has questioned the sporting spirit of Mumbai Indians. Mumbai Indians needed 16 runs to win in the last over. 14 runs off the first five balls and Mumbai Indians needed 2 runs to win on the last ball, but Dhawal Kulkarni, who was standing at the non-striker’s end, was well ahead of the crease before Chennai bowler Lungi Ngidi bowled.
When Pollard played the shot, Kulkarni easily completed two runs and Mumbai got the win. Brad Hogg wrote in tweeting, “Last night, two runs were needed to win the last ball and the player at the non-striker end took advantage of it. Is this sports spirit? ‘
