SunRisers Hyderabad defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by six wickets in the Indian Premier League 2020 eliminator to book their place in Qualifier 2 on Friday. SRH will face Delhi Capitals, who missing to Mumbai Indians in the first Qualifier on Thursday, on Sunday for a place in the last. In the sixth over of SRH’s chase, David Warner missed a ball that came back in from Mohammed Siraj. RCB went up for a caught in the back of shout but the on-field umpire gave him not out. Virat Kohli went for a review and despite no conclusive evidence to overturn the on-field call, TV umpire gave the decision in favour of RCB. Warner used to be clearly upset with the controversial call as he walked off the field. Soon after his dismissal, former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris took to Twitter and slammed the third umpire for changing the on-field call.

“Unbelievable decision from the 3rd umpire. David Warner each and every reason to explode. Original decision not out and never conclusive evidence to overturn,” Styris tweeted.

Styris’ countryman and commentator Simon Doull, then again, used to be convinced that the ball touched Warner’s gloves on its way to the wicketkeeper.

“What game and replays are you watching..!! Clearly off the glove,” Doull tweeted.

In response, Styris cleared his stance and said that according to the rules, TV umpire needs conclusive evidence to overturn the on-field call.
