While the cricket in IPL 2018 has been of top notch in IPL 2018, umpiring decisions haven t been up to the mark. A blunder from umpire KN Ananthapadmanabhan left Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) cricketers and fans fuming during the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/indian-premier-league-2018-200860/live-scores/kolkata-knight-riders-vs-mumbai-indians-live-cricket-score-match-41-186211-summary.html" target="_blank">Match 41 of the tournament</a>. Mumbai Indians (MI) were blazing all guns and looked set for a huge score. Tom Curran was bowling the 16th over. Ananthapadmanabhan called the fifth ball a no-ball. Curran looked surprised and the replays showed that a part of Curran s foot was behind the line. A free-hit had already been signalled, leaving the KKR players justifiably upset. Curran even suggested a review, but unfortunately there is no such provision in the game. The umpires asked to carry on with the play but Curran still protested. <p></p> <p></p>[link-to-post url="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/ipl-2018-ishan-kishans-blitz-propels-mumbai-indians-to-210-for-6-against-kolkata-knight-riders-710516"][/link-to-post] <p></p> <p></p>Curran calmed down only after skipper Dinesh Karthik intervened and asked him to carry on with the game. The free-hit ball was a full toss and luckily for KKR, it cost the team a single. The commentators criticised the call and fans lambasted the umpiring on social media. <p></p> <p></p>https://twitter.com/LewisAWinter/status/994244494995402759 <p></p> <p></p>Mumbai finished with 210 for 6 courtesy Ishan Kishan s 21-ball 62 that proved to be decisive.
