Controversial run out of Faf du Plessis: The 68th match of IPL 2024 is between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium. After getting the chance to bat first, RCB batsmen have given an excellent start to the team. Virat Kohli and captain Faf du Plessis scored 78 runs for the first wicket. Virat Kohli was out after scoring 47 runs and captain Faf du Plessis was also out after scoring 54 runs.

Did the third umpire call a controversial run out?

Actually, on the last ball of the 13th over of RCB, Rajat Patidar hit a sharp shot in front of Mitchell Santner, but Santner tried to stop the ball and the ball touched his finger and hit the stumps at the other end. Meanwhile, Faf du Plessis, standing at the non-striker end, tried to put his bat inside the crease. Chennai players appealed and the on-field umpire requested assistance from the third umpire. The third umpire reviewed the run out several times using replays before making his decision and ultimately accepted that Faf du Plessis’s bat was in the air when the ball hit the stumps, so he was run out.
