Viral Video: Ponting, Ganguly Clash with Umpire in DC vs RR

DC vs RR: In the high-stakes clash between Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals during Thursday’s IPL match at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, a surprising alliance formed between two cricketing legends, Ricky Ponting and Sourav Ganguly, as they found themselves on the same side of a contentious umpiring decision.

The altercation unfolded when Rajasthan Royals’ skipper, Sanju Samson, signaled for Rovman Powell to join the field after only the second ball of the first over. Ponting, visibly animated in the dugout, raised objections to this move, prompting an exchange with the on-field umpire. As the tension escalated, the fourth umpire intervened, armed with a piece of paper to clarify the situation to Ponting.

However, the unexpected twist came when Ganguly, positioned just behind the Delhi Capitals coach, inserted himself into the conversation. What began as a disagreement over on-field proceedings evolved into a united front, with Ponting and Ganguly standing shoulder to shoulder in defense of their team’s interests.
