The 7th match of the Vivo IPL 2019 was played between Mumbai and Bangalore at the Homeworld Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore, The Bangalore team lost the match by a very small margin of 6 runs but a story on the social media became viral.
RCB was required just 7 run to win on the last ball, but the last ball which Malinga thorwn was a no ball on which the umpire’s attention was not taken. Malinga has clearly overstepped but umpire S Ravi didn’t pick it, Kohli is red-faced and the crowd were in total disarray.

Virat Post Match Reaction
Virat Kohli: We are playing at the IPL level and not playing club cricket. The umpires should have had their eyes open. That is a ridiculous call at the last ball. If it is a game of margins, I don’t know what is happening. A bit of a mistake from me to take him on at that stage. Mumbai is lucky to have him. And also Malinga. And if Jassi is in good form, it is good for India.
Apart from Virat Kohli reaction Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma too said that such mistakes should not take place on the cricketing field and hoped that these mistakes should be rectified.
