Uthappa went for a straight drive against spinner Hrithik Shokeen, who incidentally was making his IPL debut. The veteran batter ended up hitting it straight to the bowler who grabbed the ball and claimed a catch. Umpire Bruce Oxenford, however, was not particularly convinced and referred the decision to the third umpire. The replays did not prove to be perfectly conclusive as it was not clear whether the ball was touching the ground or Shokeen had his fingers underneath.

Notably, this is not the first instance where umpiring decisions have been under scrutiny. In the game between Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore, umpire Chris Gaffaney was criticized for not detecting a wide delivery, while earlier on in the season, KN Ananthapadmanabhan copped flak for a controversial dismissal of Sunrisers Hyderabad’s skipper Kane Williamson in the match against Rajasthan Royals.
