New Delhi: Rajasthan's one-run loss against Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League on Sunday has left co-owner Raj Kundra livid at the standard of on-field umpiring. The businessman tweeted his anger a day later saying the umpires needed glasses.
Morne Morkel bowled the penultimate over for Delhi with Royals needing just 15 runs. His fourth delivery went down the leg-side but no signal from the umpire deemed it legal. The over cost three runs and the wicket of Brad Hodge and the visitors at the Feroze Shah Kotla eventually lost by a solitary run. "@rajasthanroyals umpire need's glasses!!! It was a clear wide Miles away fm the leg stump!! I am proud of my boys! Gave #DD a good run!!" wrote Kundra.
Royals had the match in control for most parts of the chase and could have slid into the third spot in the standings had they managed a win. It was not meant to be however as Delhi cemented their position at the top with 14 points.
