In the 18th over of Rajasthan Royals innings an interesting incident took place. Jaydev Unadkat, who came to bat at number ten, was give out despite ball appearing to have hit the Spidercam. Unadkat was caught at deep mid-wicket by Kamlesh Nagarkoti off Kuldeep Yadav. The batsman was given out but he wanted umpires to check it first. As per the rule, if ball hits the Spidercam or its cable, it will be deemed dead ball. RR vs KKR Stat Highlights Dream11 IPL 2020: Kolkata Knight Riders Bowlers Set up Impressive Win.
Upon intervention by third umpire, nothing conclusive was found and Unadkat was given out. Though not everyone was convinced and some felt the ball did hit the cable. Some even compared the ruling to Gully cricket rules as well. Check out some reactions we found on the Twitter.
