Delhi won a spectacular super over to beat Kolkata at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium on Saturday. But fans went crazy when they found something suspicious during the game. 

According to several Twitter users, the game was fixed as Delhi batsman Rishabh Pant had announced the result of the ball in advance. Even in the videos posted on social, Pant can be heard informing the bowler that this particular ball will go for a four. 

After the ball was delivered it actually went for a four, hit by Robin Uthappa. The incident happened in the third over when Kolkata were playing at 16 for the loss of one wicket. 

It was the fifth ball that had to be bowled by Sandeep Lamichhane.

Here are the reactions and videos posted by Twitter users.
