IPL 2022: Match or joke… Batsmen could not take DRS, there was a ruckus due to no electricity on the field

New Delhi: The Indian Premier League may be the most expensive T20 cricket tournament in the world, but on Thursday night it was postponed. Cricket was put to shame due to the arrogance of the organisers. The two batsmen returned to the pavilion only because they did not have the option of taking DRS due to power cut. Earlier the toss was also delayed.

The battle for supremacy continued on Thursday night between the two most successful, but most woeful teams of the current season, Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians. Chennai Super Kings were batting first after losing the toss in the match being held at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, but on the second ball of the match, in-form batsman Devon Conway was given out by the umpire. Daniel Sams’ ball hit his pad. Conway wanted to take dias on the ball going outside the leg-stump, but due to lack of powercut on the ground, he could not do so and bowed his head and returned to the dugout.

Uthappa could not even take DRS

According to media reports, when Conway was given out LBW by the umpire, the light in the stadium had gone out. Due to which he did not have the option of taking DRS. Devon Conway, who scored a half-century in the last three matches, went on to zero. Jasprit Bumrah brought the next over. Robin Uthappa missed the fourth ball completely. On a loud appeal, the umpire again raised his finger. Uthappa also wanted to take DRS, but the umpire told that the problem of DRS has not been resolved yet.

Dhoni was watching from the dressing room
Dhoni was keeping an eye on the whole ruckus from the dressing room. They were watching the falling wickets of their players on TV and then the drama going on on the field. However, both the captains were made aware of the problem even before the start of the match. The toss was also delayed due to the same reason. Then three or three umpires were coming and talking to Dhoni and Rohit Sharma. Although the DRS option was available in the third over, by then Chennai had lost three wickets for five runs.
