In fact, there was a dispute between Rajasthan and Hyderabad on Tuesday over a catch taken in the match played on Tuesday. The famous Krishna came to do the second over of Hyderabad’s innings. The fourth ball of the over went straight into the hands of wicketkeeper Sanju Samson, taking the edge of Williamson’s bat, but the ball was scrapped by Sanju. Devdutt Padikal, who was standing at first slip, caught the ball that was dropped from Sanju. The ground umpire did not understand whether this catch was caught or whether the ball was on the ground. The umpire gave a soft signal for Williamson to be out, but requested the third umpire to check for confirmation. The third umpire also saw replays from every angle and gave Williamson out.
Williamson was seen not out in the first frame itself

After this, people commented on this decision on social media and there was a debate about being out or not out. Williamson’s wicket meant a lot for Hyderabad.
