New Delhi. Double header match was played in IPL on Sunday. In the first match of the day, the teams of Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore were face to face. In this exciting match, RCB lost by one run. Controversy arose over the dismissal of star batsman Virat Kohli. Kohli and captain Faf Duplessis were seen arguing with the umpire. After the match, Du Plessis said that he and Virat Kohli felt that the full toss ball of KKR bowler Harshit Rana was at a height above the waist. While chasing the target against KKR, Virat was out on a full toss ball from Harshit Rana in the third over. It was this bowler who caught Kohli.

Kohli scored 18 runs in 7 balls but his team lost the match by one run while chasing 223 runs to win. After the defeat, the path for RCB to reach the playoffs has become difficult. He lost 7 out of 8 matches. Now he has to play 6 more matches in the league. In such a situation, he will have to win all the matches by a big margin. The 'Hawk-Eye system' which measures the height of no-balls is implemented in IPL. Under this, no ball is decided by estimating the height of the ball from the height of the batsman's waist in the crease.

EXPLAINED: The ball went above the waist… still Virat Kohli was given out, what does the rule say

Faf du Plessis said after the match, 'It was disappointing but rules are rules. Virat (Virat Kohli) and I thought the ball was waist high (during Kohli's dismissal). I think he judged it from the popping (batting) crease. In such a situation, one team thinks that it is a no ball, while the other team has a different thinking. Sometimes the game goes like this. Kohli was out of the crease while playing the shot and the ball was above his waist but it was coming downwards.

How can RCB qualify for the playoffs despite the heart-breaking defeat against KKR? Know the complete equation

TV umpire Michael Gough checked the height and according to Hawk-Eye tracking, if Kohli had been in the crease, the ball would have passed at a height of 0.92 meters near the waist. In this situation the ball would have been below Kohli's waist height (1.04 metres). In such a situation, Gough found the height of the ball to be below Kohli's waist height on the ball tracking scale and declared him out. However, Kohli did not seem to agree with this decision and spoke to the on-field umpire with an angry reaction. Even after leaving the field, disappointment could be seen on his face. After the match ended, Virat was seen talking to both the field umpires.
