However, during the match, Hardik Pandya's wife Natasa Stankovic captured a hilarious moment in which Suryakumar's wife Devisha Shetty was seen viewing something through a binocular. Natasa funnily captioned it, "@devishashetty_ looking for a third umpire."
You might not be aware of it if you missed the match, but Suryakumar Yadav was given out on a really close call by TV umpire. During the 14th over, right after he crossed the 50-run mark, Suryakumar attempted a ramp shot over fine-leg, but due to lack of pace from Sam Curran, he miscued it and Dawid Malan took the catch at fine-leg.
However, that catch wasn't conclusive but the on-field umpire gave the soft signal 'OUT' based upon Malan's reaction, who claimed to have caught it. When it was the time for replays for TV Umpire, the ball clearly looked to have bounced in front of Malan, who later had to scoop it up. Owing to lack of conclusive evidence, the TV Umpire had no choice but to stay with the soft signal, which was OUT.
