The 67th match of IPL 2022 is being played between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Gujarat Titans. GT captain Hardik Pandya won the toss and decided to bat first. The Royal Challengers Bangalore team is the first to go bowling. Gujarat has had a brilliant performance this season and the team has made it to the playoffs. While Royal Challengers Bangalore are currently in fifth position in the points table. It’s very difficult for him to make the playoffs.
RCB will have to win this match at all costs to reach the playoffs. Faced with such a situation, the team has made its intentions clear from the first ball. While the RCB bowlers bowl brilliantly, the outfielders save runs with their lives. After Shubman Gill was dismissed in the third over, Matthew Wade came to bat. But he failed to play a big inning and returned to the arena after scoring 16 runs on 13 balls. Maxwell sacked Wade lbw on the second ball of the sixth over.
However, Wade was not happy with the on-field referee’s decision and took DRS. Review showed that with Maxwell’s round arm action, the long ball came in at an angle from the stump, Wade wanted to sweep the turn and missed the ball completely. The ball didn’t hit the bat and neither did the globs. The third referee found that the ball would have hit the middle and the stump of the leg. In such a situation, he confirmed the decision of the field referee. Though Wade didn’t look happy even after this. Arriving in the locker room, he dropped the helmet and hit his bat as well. The video of him is now becoming more and more viral on social networks.
