Hemang Badani felt the officials should have delayed the resumption of the game a little further.

Chepauk Super Gillies coach Hemang Badani had a bone to pick with the match officials after his team suffered its fifth consecutive loss in as many games in the current edition of the TNPL.

While pointing out that the team played badly and its exit from the tournament was only due to its “poor cricket”, he voiced his disapproval about the officials' decision to resume the match sooner than was necessary after the rain interruption.

According to the rules, there would be no reduction in the number of overs if the play resumes in an hour. The break lasted all of 32 minutes.

Badani said he inspected the ball after the game and observed that it was wet.

“You don’t see a left arm spinner a waist high full toss, you don’t see a left arm spinner playing a head high full toss. That clearly tells that the ball was not....we were really able to hold the ball. At some point of time common sense should prevail. The common sense is that we have an extension for an hour, wait it out, let' s not hurry the game,” he said.

Tuti Patriots' Anand Subramanian, who weighed in on this topic, agreed that his team was at an advantage after the rain interruption.

“Maybe the bowling side would have had a little more difficulty because the ball got wet and it was more difficult for them. It was an advantage for us, to be fair,” he said.
