RR vs KKR IPL 2019 match was a one-sided affair with visitors Kolkata Knight Riders dominating pretty much for the entirety of the game. None of the Rajasthan Royals batsmen, besides Steve Smith, could attack the opposition and despite losing just three wickets.
RR scored only 139 runs in 20 overs. KKR chased down the target without sweating a bit. While the game might have been drab affair for many fans, one incident piqued the interest of the entire cricketing fraternity.
Chris Lynn has survived in the fourth over of KKR’s chase despite the ball hitting the stumps. Surprisingly, the bails lit up as the ball came in contact with the leg stump but did not fall.
The Australian right-hander got an inside edge off Dhawal Kulkarni and the ball bumped into his leg stump but raced to the fine-leg fence for a boundary.
Former England skipper Michael Vaughan took to Twitter to suggest a rule change to counter the issue.
“Simple rule change … If the Zinger bails are going be used which I like .. If the Ball hits the stumps and the Bail lights up then it must be OUT … We can’t be having Bowlers Bowl a Batsman out then the bails not to come off but the Zingers be flashing.” He tweeted.
This is not the first time something like this has happened in IPL 2019.
Similar instance has happened during Kings XI Punjab versus Chennai Super Kings match at Chepauk. KL Rahul received the fortune in that match as the bails refused to come off.
