IPL 2024: Virat Kohli, Faf get angry on umires over ball change issue

During an IPL 2024 match, Faf du Plessis, Virat Kohli, and Lockie Ferguson argued with umpire Akshay Totre about not changing a ball they thought was bad. Despite their complaints, Totre refused to change it. Then, the second umpire, KN Anantha Padmanabhan, got involved but also decided not to change the ball. This left the players very frustrated.

Virat Kohli, known for being very passionate, became very angry with the umpires. This was similar to a recent incident at Eden Gardens during the KKR vs. RCB match, where Kohli was upset with the umpires over a no-ball call.


While this was happening, Rachin Ravindra hit a six on a free hit and scored his fifty. This excited the crowd and helped his team.

These events show the high emotions and pressures in the IPL, where player and umpire disagreements are common.
