Rishi Dhawan could not believe umpire’s decision when there were a day and night difference between bat and ball. The all-rounder was left frustrated when the standing umpire gave him out for nothing. Delhi’s southpaw spinner Varun Sood bowled to Rishi Dhawan and there was a big gulf between bat and ball. The wicketkeeper Anuj Rawat missed it and former Delhi skipper Gautam Gambhir claimed the catch.

Rishi Dhawan could not believe the decision as he held his head in disgust. He had to walk back to the pavilion as he kept banging his both hands. Meanwhile, the umpiring standards haven’t been great in the Indian domestic circuit. In fact, it was not a mistake from the standing umpire, it was a blunder.

It was a shocking decision.

Meanwhile, Rishi Dhawan was able to rescue Himachal Pradesh from troubled waters. Himachal had their backs against the wall when they were tottering at 58-6 in their first batting innings.

The right-hander played a fine knock of 64 runs off 114 balls to take Himachal to a respectable score of 223. Dhawan scored six fours and one six in his fighting knock. He was able to add an alliance of 95 runs with Ekant Sen who scored 46 off 71 balls.

Meanwhile, Delhi is looking good at the present situation. The hosts are currently batting at 179-3 in their second innings and they lead by 273 runs. Delhi’s former skipper Gautam Gambhir played a good knock of 49 runs before getting run-out.

Delhi’s captain Nitish Rana made 32 runs and Dhruv Shorey is batting unbeaten on 54 runs. Meanwhile, the umpiring standards should improve in the domestic circuit and BCCI should consider to include DRS in the Ranji Trophy.

Here is the video of the umpiring howler:
