Yusuf Pathan Refuses To Walk Off After Umpire Rules Him Out- But why?

Mumbai won 309-run win over Baroda on the last day of their Round 1 match at the Reliance Stadium in Vadodara on Thursday. Chasing a mammoth target of 534 runs, Baroda piled on 224 runs in their second innings, a humiliating loss.

The day the Baroda batsman collapsed badly, Yusuf Pathan refused to go out after being dismissed by the on-field umpire. The incident happened in Baroda’s second innings when Shashank Atari bowled in the 48th over in place of Akash Parkar.

Attard threw a forward defensive shot from Yusuf Pathan on the second ball of the over, which went straight to short leg fielder Jay Gokul Bista.

The umpire looks at him once, but eventually raised his finger, dismissing Pathan. However, the 37-year-old batsman refused to go off the field and held his ground for about a minute, and waved his hands towards the umpire in frustration.

Pathan had to explain a lot to Mumbai’s senior player Ajinkya Rahane to walk back. However, his head was shaken after returning to the pavilion for a long time.

The win gave Mumbai all six points, while Baroda is point-less after their season opener.

Meanwhile, in the second game, Karnataka once again faced Trump against Tamil Nadu in their first match of the Premier domestic tournament, as they defeated them by 26 runs in a thrilling contest.

Chasing a target of 180 runs for victory, Tamil Nadu was reduced to 154 terms in their run chase.

After a strong position on tea, Tamil Nadu faltered in the final session and eventually lost their last wicket on the third ball of the day.
