Sanju Samson’s dismissal sparks controversy during DC vs RR, animated Capitals owner gestures from stands

A seemingly angry Sanju Samson was seen having an animated conversation with the umpires after he was given out.

Rajasthan Royals skipper Sanju Samson’s dismissal sparked a controvery in DC vs RR game at Arun Jaitley stadium in Delhi. As Samson was nearing his hundred, he attempted a big hit but was caught out on the boundary, courtesy of a brilliant catch from Shai Hope. The catch turned out to be controversial as it was taken too close to the ropes.

However, replays from one angle showed that there was a gap between the fielder’s shoes and the boundary line and hence the out decision was upheld. Replays from other angles suggested so otherwise.
