Indian Premier League: Yuzvendra Chahal Advocates For This Big Rule Change In Cricket | Cricket News

In the match against Delhi Capitals, Rajasthan Royals spinner Yuzvendra Chahal proved to be really unlucky when he foxed David Warner and the ball hit the stumps, but the bail did not fall and the left-handed Australian survived. In the end, Warner remained undefeated at 52 when he guided the Delhi Capitals to a victory. Now Chahal has advocated a rule change and said that if the ball hits the stumps and the jumper shines but does not come loose, it should still be released.

“We can do it because at a crucial time, and it’s a big event or match or final, something like this happens, because if the ball hits the wicket, it should be out. If it’s issued not just because the bail has not “dropped off, then it could cost you a match. It will definitely affect the (bowling) team,” Chahal told ESPNcricinfo.

In the ninth over of DC’s hunt for 161, Warner was thrown by Chahal. However, the bail did not fall and Warner managed to survive. The event shocked everyone.

“Because it was the first time this happened to me, I was even shocked because the ball hit the wickets and the bail did not fall. If something like this happens at a crucial time, especially with a batsman like Warner, who does not offer too many chances. so if he had gotten out at that time, the match result could probably have been different, says Chahal.

Speaking about his plan against Warner, Chahal said: “” The way he plays with a short backlift [trying to hit squarer of the pitch]I wanted to create the gap [between the bat and the ball] because if the ball turns, I have to go for the wicket. “

The LED stump technology is now used to judge three forms of dismissals – bowling, stumpings and run-outs. According to the current rules, the guarantee must fall from the top of the stumps for the batter to be out.

In the game between DC and RR, Mitchell Marsh scored 89 of 62 balls to help the Rishabh Pant-led side record an eight-wickets win to keep their IPL playoffs alive.


The Australian all-rounder shared a match-winning grandstand with 143 runs with compatriot Warner, who got undefeated 52 out of 41, when Delhi won by 11 balls over.

Speaking of Chahal, the leg spinner is currently the joint highest wicket-taker during the current season, with Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Wanindu Hasaranga both taking 23 wickets each.
