SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) captain David Warner not a happy man on Tuesday. Already dismissed and in the dug out, the Australian was seen fuming as SRH continued to fight against Chennai Super Kings' (CSK) in the 29th match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2002.

SRH eventually failed to chase CSK's 167, losing the first reverse fixture of the season by 20 runs in Dubai, UAE. But the reason for the skipper's anger towards the end of the match was more to do with a decision from fellow Aussie Paul Reiffel, rather than the team's struggle.

In the penultimate over, bowled by Shardul Thakur, the second ball was delivered wide off the tramline even as Rashid Khan goes for the shot. Then Reiffel, who was in the process of stretching his arms to signal a wide, pulled back after seeing MS Dhoni's reaction behind the wickets. Apparently!

Watch it here:

It left fans wondering what really happened. Here are some reactions.
