Pant, Thakur and Amre were involved in the last over drama that marred the RR vs DC encounter.
Needing 36 runs from the final over, Powell hit three successive sixes from the first three deliveries off Obed McCoy. DC needed another 18 more from the final three deliveries.
At this juncture, Kuldeep, who was at the non-striker's end, gestured to the umpires demanding that the last delivery be checked for a possible no-ball on height.Powell joined in the discussion with the umpires too but the officials stood their ground, saying the delivery was legal.
Pant then gestured Powell and Kuldeep to walk out though assistant coach Shane Watson tried to reason with him.
The incident also saw DC coaching staff member Praveen Amre walk into the playing arena but he was told to go back by the umpires.RR legspinner Yuzvendra Chahal tried to stop Kuldeep from walking out, while Royals opener Jos Buttler, who hit a match-winning 116, was also seen having words with Pant near the boundary line.
