KKR vs MI: Watch: Mark Boucher’s heated exchange with the fourth official over the chaos involving Rohit Sharma and Piyush Chawla

Mark Boucher, Rohit Sharma and Piyush Chawla

Mumbai Indians (MI) head coach Mark Boucher looked furious during the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). The 60th match of the tournament is underway at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Mark Boucher looked furious at the mix-up that led to the Mumbai Indians being questioned by the umpires. After Piyush Chawla walked off the field after completing his overs, Rohit Sharma came out as a substitute fielder for the leg-spinner at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

However, after that, Piyush Chawla returned and Rohit Sharma was still on the field. But this time he stayed on the field as a replacement for Nuwan Untilhara, who left the field after his overs. This created a lot of confusion among the umpires when they questioned the Mumbai Indians.

The umpires were confused as they were not sure whether Mumbai Indians used Rohit Sharma as an impact player or a substitute fielder. Mark Boucher was not impressed as he was seen chatting animatedly with the referee at Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan lead Mumbai Indians to good start

The opening batsman scored 40 runs as Mumbai Indians lost their first wicket at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. With the kind of start they have had, Mumbai Indians look like favorites to win the game. They have already been eliminated from the tournament.
