Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli, on May 15, was seen getting involved in an altercation with umpire Kumar Dharmasena after the match officials continued the last two overs of Sunrisers Hyderabad’s (SRH) innings despite heavy rain. 

In an all important clash at the Uppal, rain played a spoilsport and as a result, the match got reduced to 11 overs-per-side. It was during the 10th over of SRH’s innings that Kohli misfielded on Mitchell Starc’s bowling and tried to draw the attention of umpires that it was getting tough for him and his players on the field. He also made a point about the pitch get wet due to the heavy downpour. 

When the over ended, Kohli looked infuriated and he walked towards Dharmasena asking him about why the match wasn’t stopped when the rain got heavier. The other match official Anil Chaudhary tried to calm Kohli down as even Dharmasena seemed unhappy. It didn’t help as wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik continued the argument before Chaudhary intervened to cool things down. 

Here is the video of it: 

 

RCB won the match by 6 wickets (by D/L method) and Kohli stole the show with his unbeaten knock of 44 off just 19 balls. With 15 points and NRR of +1.04, RCB have all but qualified for the play-offs and their last match against Delhi Daredevils (DD) on May 17 might turn out to be a formality if Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) beats Rajasthan Royals (RR) on May 16. But if the reverse happens then RCB will qualify under two conditions: 

1. Either they beat DD, or 

2. Lose by a small margin
