By not giving no ball srh lost an extra run and extra ball (free hit). So when you lose by 4runs it does makes the difference.— shashank (@shashank_2468) April 22, 2018

Whether in the replay videos it was clearly shown that the bowl was totally a no ball. According to the cricket rules, all the bowls that come up to waist all are no ball and after the announcing the no ball, the batsman gets a free hit. However, it didn't happen in the Sunday's match and SRH lost the match by a minor gap of 4 runs. Now the fans cricket experts are criticizing this decision of umpire and claiming that SRH lost the match due to this worst decision.
Moreover, Ambati Rayadu's brilliant knock of 79 runs assured a clear hit win for Chennai Super Kings.
