In a shocking new development, Umpire C Shamshuddin won’t take any further part in the continuous Ranji Trophy last being played among Bengal and Saurashtra. He had a growth in his lower guts after he was hit by a toss from a Bengal defender. The occurrence occurred during the opening day of the match, compelling him to pass up the procedures on Day 2 as his agony exasperated.
In his nonattendance, the other on-field umpire, KN Ananthapadhmanabhan, administered from the two finishes for a full meeting. Since BCCI guidelines express that a nonpartisan umpire ought to direct from the two finishes, Piyush Kakkar, a nearby umpire who hails from Rajkot, was consequently precluded from administering at the opposite end and remained at square leg during the aggregate of that meeting.
On the off chance that it was a gathering match or the underlying matches in the knockout stages, S Ravi, who was the third umpire, would have taken the field.
In any case, with constrained DRS in play in the last, Ravi needed to pause. He came on for a short period after lunch when Shamshuddin assumed control over the job of the third umpire.
We wish umpire C Shamshuddin a speedy recovery. 💪💪
