New Delhi: May 11, 2014

Umpire Sanjay Hazare has been removed by Indian Premier League (IPL) committee apparently for a mistake he committed during an IPL match between Delhi Daredevils and Rajasthan Royals in New Delhi on May 3.

Hazare made a controversial call as he shot down a run-out appeal made by Rajasthan players against Daredevils captain Kevin Pietersen without referring to third umpire, even though TV replays appeared to show that the Englishman was out of his crease.

IPL chairman Ranjib Biswal said Hazare, 53, will not be umpiring any more matches for the rest of the tournament.

“He has been removed. There are many reasons,” Biswal was quoted as saying by ESPNCricinfo.

Hazare admitted to his blunder. “I told him [the match referee] the same thing. It was a human error. Once I had made the decision I could not correct it,” he said.

Hazare, who has officiated in 17 IPL matches, later officiated as the third umpire when Mumbai Indians faced Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Wankhede Stadium on May 6, which has turned out to be his last game.
