Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy: Hyderabad, Karnataka embroiled in controversy

The umpires ignored that and awarded only 2 runs to the Karnataka team.

Hyderabad needed 24 off 12 balls. The final nail came when Binny scalped Mohammed Siraj off the final ball of the innings to finish with figures of 3 for 29 from four overs.

The aggressive opening pair of Samson and Vinod got Kerala off to a fiery start as they added 65 runs in just 5.4 overs before the former was dismissed by Girinath Reddy for a 19-ball 32. Their captain Ambati Rayudu and team-mates protested on the ground delaying the start of the next game between Andhra and Kerala.

The Hyderabad skipper said the match should not have been halted after the target was declared.

Karnataka sneaked home to victory over Hyderabad by a hair's breadth in their Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy T20 match at the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy Stadium here on Thursday. "An official report by the Match Referee is awaited, following which appropriate action as per BCCI's Code of Conduct will be taken", the BCCI tweeted from their official handle.

The 131-run second-wicket partnership made the task daunting for Hyderabad, but once Tanmay Agarwal and Akshath got going, it didn't seem as impossible as it did at one stage.

"It was not right by Hyderabad. We did the same, had lunch and left for our hotel", Karnataka team official said.

Meanwhile, according to Karnataka's version of the events, they had notified the third umpire of the fielding faux pas immediately after the replays were shown on the television. "Karnataka and Hyderabad players did not have any argument over those two runs. That is exactly what I wanted to tell and we were waiting for the Super Over which never happened", he added.

"Can you believe it". Only two runs were given eventually and when Vinay Kumar kept arguing during the mid-innings. Well done Vinay Kumar. Needing eight runs in the final over, they lost three wickets while scoring five runs.

Luckily for Bangalore, the two runs were added later on and their score became 205.

Off the second over's fourth ball, Hyderabad's deep mid-wicket fielder Mehdi Hasan's foot touched the ropes. Umpires failed to see this but replays confirmed it and commentators called it. The umpires approached Indian captain Kapil Dev. But his run out, followed by Akash Bhandari's, in the 20th over effectively dashed Hyderabad's hopes.

The decision was taken retrospectively during the innings break after the umpires were informed of an error during the second over of the match. It was not in the spirit of the game.

"There was some confusion in the middle at the start of our innings", Rayudu was quoted as telling reporters by website EspnCricinfo.com "I told the umpire he can't change the score (now) and we are chasing 204. What I went and told the umpire was 'sir you can not change the score, we are batting for 204 as our target, '" Cricbuzz quoted Rayudu as saying. That is exactly what I told him and he said 'we'll see it at the end, let the match start.

The match was stopped again for nine minutes, Rayudu said as the officials deliberated whether to revise the total. Definitely a boundary; the player (Hassan) knows that.
