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.

This needs to be investigated. At 3.4 overs @RishabPant777 is heard to be saying "Ye tho waise bhi chauka hai" and next ball goes to a boundary..

What Rishabh pant just said "Yeh toh aise bhi 4ka hai". Are IPL players involved in any kind ko fixing. Anyone certainly have doubts comming around in their minds after all. #Ipl #KKRvDC #fixing #spotfixing #rishabhpant #kkr #Dc #DelhiVsKolkata #DCvKKR #DCvsKKR #dcvskkr pic.twitter.com/bxE6f2j66i— shubham verma (@shubhamvrm34) March 30, 2019

Some even tagged the BCCI asking what is happening here?
Put into bat, Kolkata had posted 185 runs. But Delhi managed to reach the runs scored but fell a run short of victory.
The game went into super over where the Delhi had put up a target of 11 runs, which the Dinesh Karthik led-side failed to score.
