The Twenty20 format, whereas it’s attention-grabbing, can generally be merciless for the bowlers, as even their smallest of errors can price them large in an in depth contest. To make issues worse, even the foundations favour the batsmen and there have been situations up to now when a bowler’s actions grow to be an enormous level of debate whereas the batsmen get away with absolutely anything. One such incident occurred throughout an IPL sport between Chennai Tremendous Kings and Rajasthan Royals on Monday. Throughout CSK’s final over of the innings, Dwayne Bravo, standing on the non-striker’s finish, left the crease approach earlier than Mustafizur Rahman has delivered the ball, gaining an excellent couple of yards. Whereas delivering the ball, Mustafizur Rahman overstepped simply by a number of inches and it was referred to as a no ball, whereas Bravo’s motion went below the radar.

The incident made a number of cricketers livid, with former India bowing coach Venkatesh Prasad being one in every of them, who shared his disappointment on Twitter. Prasad, who performed 33 Assessments and 161 ODIs for India, questioned the double-standards and requested ICC how concentrating on a bowler who as per the foundations runs out a batsman, who’s making an attempt to realize undue benefit, was honest.
“The bowler overstepping by a number of inches is penalised, however a batsman backing up a number of yards is not. The bowler has each proper to expire a batsman backing up up to now. PERIOD. Calling it in opposition to the spirit of the sport is a joke @ICC #CSKvRR,” Venkatesh Prasad tweeted.

Bravo went on to play an important cameo, scoring 20 off simply eight balls, together with a final ball six, as CSK posted 188/9 from their 20 overs.
Bravo’s late flourish coupled with Moeen Ali and Ravindra Jadeja’s very good bowling effort helped CSK register their second win of the season, taking them to second on the IPL 2021 Factors Desk.
