The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 has been a spectacle of emotions, passion, and occasional controversy. One such incident that sparked widespread debate was the controversial dismissal of Rajasthan Royals (RR) captain, Sanju Samson, during a high-stakes match against Delhi Capitals (DC) at the Arun Jaitley Stadium.

The incident occurred in the 16th over of RR’s chase when Samson hit a shot down the ground. DC’s Shai Hope took a brilliant catch to dismiss him. However, the replay showed Hope was close to the boundary cushions but didn’t touch them. Samson initially began to walk off but returned after viewing the replays on the big screen.

Samson had to depart for 86 runs from just 46 balls as the RR captain missed his fourth IPL hundred by just 4 runs. The replays were not able to prove beyond doubt that Hope’s catch was clean. It was a big dent in RR’s chase as Samson’s wicket opened the gates for DC to make a comeback.
