Trust issues? Hell, yeah!!
While you must beware of trust issues in a relationship, but Mujeeb Ur Rahman got some on the cricket field too. And all this happened when Rahman decided to take a DRS against the ‘third umpire’ decision.
Mujeeb Ur Rahman, during the 14th over of the match, had knicked the bowl to the wicket-keeper, Johny Bairstow, behind the stumps. It was then when SRH appealed and the umpire decided to go upstairs.
The third umpire, after rolling in, rolling back, and some rolling-in again and then rolling back, finally gave the OUT decision. However, Mujeeb Ur Rahman was in no mood of heading back to the dugout so he decides to go for a DRS. Yes, a DRS within a DRS.
Needless to say, it was a lot to digest and cricket fans were left confused. Was it a DRS within a DRS questioned many.
As all this happened, many people came out to explain what really happened.
Actually, the umpire went up to check if Bairstow has taken a clean catch as the on-field umpire thought it was a bump catch. A bump ball in cricket is simply a ball that bumps of the ground before landing into the fielder’s hand.
However, while checking for the bump ball, the third umpire didn’t check for ultra edge thus Rahaman choose to take DRS again.
It was an umpire referral. And when the batsman was given out, he had the opportunity to call for a referral. Hence why there wasn’t ultra edge for the first one.— Ashwen Ojha (@ojhaashwen) October 8, 2020
That wasn’t DRS, it was umpire call to review his decision in which they didn’t use ultra edge. And the DRS taken by batsmen was also not reviewed properly. I still think Mujeeb was not out. If one see from other angle, the bat was hitting the gound.— Anupam Rastogi (@twt2Anupam) October 8, 2020
It was done in the right way. The umpires had reviewed the decision of whether it was a bump ball or not,it turned out it was not. So, He was given out. Then,Mujeeb decided to review the decision of whether he hit the ball or not, which he did. Correct decision #IPL2020 #SRHvKXIP— Kartik O 🏏⚽🔗 (@KOCricket528) October 8, 2020
