A controversial umpiring decision took place in the 50 match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Thursday, May 2.

The umpiring in the ongoing IPL season has become a topic of debate due to a number of questionable calls made by the officials. The similar incident took place which involved SRH batter Travis Head. The controversial umpiring decision took place in the 15th over when Head stepped out of the crease after missing the ball off Avesh Khan and Sanju Samson threw the ball to the stumps.

Travis Head plump down his bat into the crease instead of sliding after losing the balance. The on-field umpire decided to sent upstairs to review the possible run-out. The replay showed that Head's bat was not grounded but, much to the shock of the RR players, third umpire gave him not out. RR coach Kumar Sangakkara argued with the fourth umpire over the controversial decision.

Though Travis Head survived the controversial umpiring decision but he didn't know what was coming next. Avesh Khan delivered the good length delivery and Travis Head moved across the stumps to play the lap. However, the ball hit the stumps and Rajasthan Royals had the last laugh after the controversial not out decision by the third umpire.

After Travis Head's dismissal, Rajasthan Royals bowlers continued to face the heat of the onslaught as Nitish Reddy and Heinrich Klaasen unleashed their carnage in the middle. The pair took RR bowling attack to the cleaners as they formed an unbeaten 70-run stand for the fourth wicket to take the team past 200-run mark at the end of the first innings.

Reddy and Klaasen's stand helped Sunrisers Hyderabad post a total of 201/3 in 20 overs on the board. Nitish Reddy played a brilliant unbeaten knock of 76 off 42 balls, including 8 sixes and 3 fours, at a strike rate of 180.95 while Klaasen played an innings of 42 off 19 balls at a strike rate of 221.05.

For Rajasthan Royals, Avesh Khan picked two wickets while Sandeep Sharma scalped a wicket. Spinner Yuzvendra Chahal had a forgettable outing as he went wicketless while conceding 62 runs with an economy rate of 15.50 in his four overs spell.
