Powell expressed his hope that the third delivery would be called a no ball by the umpire. Obed McCoy, the bowler, had thrown a full ball on his hips that Powell sailed over deep midwicket.
DC captain Rishabh Pant, stunned and enraged by the on-field umpires' failure to designate the third ball of the over a no-ball, directed DC batsmen Powell and Kuldeep Yadav to continue disputing with the umpires. However, when nothing happened, the wicketkeeper-batter signalled Powell and Kuldeep to return to the dugout.
"To be honest, I was pretty confident (at hitting six sixes in an over). After I got the first two, I was like what can happen from here, and then I got the next one. I was just hoping that it was a no-ball, but the umpire's decision is final, and we as cricketers take that and move on."
"It felt good. I've been searching for that for the last few games, and it's finally good to see a few come out in the middle. It's just for me to take the confidence from that game leading up to the rest of the matches, and just transfer it to the next phase of the competition."
On-field umpires Nitin Menon and Nikhil Patwardhan refused to budge when assistant coach Praveen Amre visited the field to suggest that the umpires move to the third umpire. Pant was fined for his actions, but Amre was given a two-match suspension.
