Actually, Punjab won the toss and batted first in the match. The opening was handled by Gill and Sanveer Singh.
Sanveer walked off in the second over and Shubman Gill was also out soon after. Caught by the keeper behind the wicket, Shubman, unhappy with the umpire’s decision, refused to leave the crease. Shubman refused to leave the ground. Umpire insulted Muhammad Rafi. This was Rafi’s first match as an umpire. After so much pressure, the decision was changed after talking to the leg umpire.
Delhi didn’t like the opposition team overturning the umpire’s decision by putting pressure on them. Bowlers rejected bowlers. The entire team left the field under the leadership of captain Nitish Rana. Finally the match referee P. Ranganathan intervened and restarted the match. By then Shubman Gill team had made its debut in India. He played two matches but could not play a big innings despite giving his life. Then 20-year-old Shubman Gill fell prey to Simarjit Singh.
