Vijay Hazare Trophy 2018: Naman Ojha Engages in an Ugly Altercation With the Umpires
The Vijay Hazare clash between Madhya Pradesh and Delhi took an ugly when Madhya Pradesh skipper Naman Ojha got himself in a nasty tussle with the umpires.
Meanwhile, the incident took place when the official erred in his decision. The unhappy Naman Ojha halted the game for 20 minutes while arguing with the umpire regarding the decision.
The incident broke out with the dismissal of Nitish Rana, who was looking good at the crease. Against the run of play, the umpire adjudged him out following a loud appeal from the bowler. However, a strong protest from Rana forced the umpire to reverse his decision. This left Naman Ojha furious, who kept on arguing with the umpires to make things worse.
