Spidercam halts RR-LSG IPL clash for a brief period just after two balls | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: In a bizarre and first-of-its-kind incident, the IPL match between Rajasthan Royals and Lucknow Super Giants halted for a brief period, which lasted seven minutes, due to the wire of the spidercam snapping and falling onto the outfield.
The incident happened in the very first over of the Rajasthan innings, after skipper Sanju Samson won the toss and chose to bat at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Sunday.

It was a spidercam error, as the cable wire fell on the outfield soon after the two balls were bowled into the match. The engineers swiftly responded to the situation, rushing onto the ground to retrieve the fallen wire of the spidercam and remove it from the field of play.
Hosts RR are playing with three overseas players in Jos Buttler, Trent Boult, and Shimron Hetmyer. India wicketkeeper-batter KL Rahul returns from a quadricep injury to lead LSG.
The two teams have clashed three times in the IPL so far. Lucknow Super Giants emerged victorious once, while Rajasthan Royals secured wins twice. In their latest encounter, Lucknow Super Giants triumphed over Rajasthan Royals by a margin of 10 runs.
