Marcus Stoinis and Josh Hazlewood were at the centre of controversial scenes in the IPL on Tuesday night, with the former left seething after being dismissed by his compatriot.

Stoinis and Hazlewood went head-to-head as Royal Challengers Bangalore battled Lucknow Super Giants in Mumbai.

Stoinis was in fine form and shaping up to lift Lucknow past RCB's 6-181, hitting 24 off 13 balls and eyeing the 34 needed off two overs left.

However he was dismissed in controversial fashion one ball after the umpire failed to call what appeared to be a wide from Hazlewood.

The very next delivery Stoinis shuffled across his crease but only managed to smash the ball straight onto his stumps after Hazlewood fired one in towards his pads.

Stoinis let out a frustrated scream - apparently directed at the umpire - after his attempt to outfox Hazlewood went horribly wrong.

Stoinis thought the previous delivery should have been called a wide and appeared to try and counteract the no-call on the next ball.

The Aussie all-rounder screamed an obscenity clearly audible on the stump microphone - which could lead to a ban - before storming off the field.

Fans were also fuming that the previous ball to Stoinis hadn't been called a wide.

Hazlewood finished with a match-winning 4-25 from four overs as Lucknow ended on 8-163, with RCB winning by 18 runs.

His haul included the key wicket of Quinton de Kock in the third over, well caught at slip by international teammate Glenn Maxwell.

Maxwell took a crucial wicket himself, dismissing LSG's top scorer Krunal Pandya for a 28-ball 42.

RCB's tally was built around a brilliant 64-ball 96 from Faf du Plessis.

The South African had seen opening partner Anuj Rawat and Virat Kohli dismissed in successive balls in the opening over.

But with Maxwell smacking 23 from 11 balls to ensure the power play was not wasted, Du Plessis was able to settle in before punishing the Super Giants attack.

Having seen his only over go for 14, Stoinis hoped to gain revenge with the ball, but Hazlewood had the final say.

“Faf had a few lean games but tonight he took his time, kept the score going and finished with a bang, so credit to him,” Hazlewood said after the game.

Bangalore are now level with Gujarat Titans at the top of the table on 10 points, however Gujarat has a game in hand.

Lucknow is now fourth with eight points from seven matches.

Sri Lanka fast bowler Dushmantha Chameera struck twice in the day's first over, including the key wicket of Kohli for a golden duck.

Kohli, who has a top score of 48 this season, was caught at point.
