After the controversial decision of umpires in last over of RR vs CSK match and Dhoni’s altercation with umpires, various reactions are coming from cricket fraternity about this incident. Some are supporting Dhoni’s decision and some are condemning it.

Addressing the media after the match, head coach of CSK Stephen Fleming said that MS Dhoni was not arguing with umpires, he just went there for clarification.

He said

“What wasn’t right was the confusion around the decision. It’s above my paygrade to really get further than that. My understanding and discussing it with the captain was we saw a no-ball called, and then there was confusion. Our understanding was that the umpire at the bowler’s end had called the no-ball and then there was confusion around whether it was a no-ball or not. MS was after some clarity and it didn’t seem to be coming. So, he took the opportunity to go out and discuss it with the umpires. That’s how I saw it and that’s how I discussed it with him afterwards. He only just wanted clarity.”

“The rights and wrongs will be discussed by everybody, including Mahi, I’m sure. But, I think, it’ll be a discussion for the umpires afterwards and I am a watcher as you guys are, for now. But he was certainly fired up about the way the decision was handled and why it was overturned or if it was overturned. So, there was a lack of clarity, obviously, for him and he wanted to get it clarified at a key moment. It’s unusual but he’s usually pretty calculated. It’ll be something he will be questioned about for sure, for a long time.”

While wicket keeper and star batsmen of RR Jos Buttler said that according to him it was probably not a right by Dhoni to argue with umpires.

In post match press-conference, Buttler said

“I’m not sure if that’s the right thing to do or not, Obviously the tensions are running high in the IPL and every run counts. Yeah, it was a big moment in the game, but whether stepping onto the pitch is quite right? No, probably not. Obviously, it’s a bit controversial. The umpires came to a decision but I was at the boundary so I wasn’t quite sure what was going on.”
