Sanju Samson had to bear the brunt of protesting against the umpire's decision, BCCI took major action

Sanju Samson's catch at the boundary by Shai Hope in the Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals match on Tuesday night at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi is in controversy. Rajasthan captain Sanju Samson, who was batting explosively, shot for a six but was caught by Shai Hope on the boundary line. After watching the replays, the umpire gave Sanju Samson out. At the same time, Sanju Samson, after watching the replay, protested against the decision in front of the umpire. Regarding this protest, BCCI has now taken major action by finding Sanju Samson guilty of violating the IPL code of conduct.

Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson has been fined 30 percent of his match fee for violating the IPL code of conduct. He was found guilty of a Level 1 offense under Article 2.8 of the Code of Conduct, which relates to dissenting from an umpire's decision. He pleaded guilty and accepted the match referee's punishment.

Samson scored 86 runs in 46 balls, which was the highest score for RR. In the 16th over, while chasing 222 runs, Shai Hope caught him at long-on off the bowling of Mukesh Kumar. Hope caught the ball close to the line, staggered a little, and then got back on his feet. The on-field umpires were unsure if Hope's foot had touched the boundary cushion, so they called in TV umpire Michael Gough, who determined that Hope had made a clean catch.

Sanju Samson protested against the decision in front of the on-field umpires before leaving the field. Sanju Samson's dismissal was a crucial moment as RR's hopes of achieving the target largely rested on Samson's shoulders. Before his dismissal, Rajasthan needed 60 runs in 27 balls.
