IPL 2020: DC beat KXIP; Preity Zinta, Sehwag fume at umpire’s controversial “short run”call

The DC vs KXIP IPL 2020 clash at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium was a nail biting experience when Punjab needed just one run off the final 3 balls. however, Delhi Capitals beat Kings XI Punjab. The scenario wouldn’t have even come to fruition had the umpire not called Chris Jordan for a short run.

Before the match went into Super Over, TV footage showed that square leg umpire Menon had called a “run short” when Chris Jordan took a couple of runs off Rabada in the 19th over while playing towards long-on area.

The TV replays showed that Jordan legally completed the first run and the bat was inside the crease. However to KXIP’s horror, Jordan was declared a “short run” which means he didn’t enter his bat inside the crease which wasn’t the case.
