Delhi Capitals co-owner Parth Jindal has received backlash after giving an aggressive reaction after the wicket of Sanju Samson. The franchise official was seen shouting “Out Hai” “Out Hai” following the controversial dismissal of the RR captain.

Sanju Samson was on top of all the Delhi Capitals bowlers and was taking the game away from the opposition. However, at the crucial junction of the game, he went wide and the game tilted after that. He became part of the controversy as his catch of Shai Hope near the boundary ropes drew a lot of criticism.

Sanju Samson played a flat shot towards length. Shai Hope, who was stationed there, took the catch inches inside the boundary ropes. The third umpire made a quick decision and overturned the matter. However, RR management was not impressed by this.

“It was lovely interacting with Manoj and Sanju; it was amazing to witness his power hitting the Kotla. It worried us all a lot, hence the lively reaction when it came out! I also had the pleasure of congratulating him. Great win for our boys!”
