This IPL match is being played at Wankhede Stadium. According to the rule, both the teams get 2-2 reviews. But due to power cut, CSK could not take DRS in the initial overs. Due to this the team got a big setback. Devon Conway, who was in excellent form, was dismissed by left-arm fast bowler Denium Sams on the second ball. He became lbw. But replays showed that the ball was probably going outside the leg stump. But they could not take DRS due to lack of light. Light came after 4 overs.
The ball was going outside the leg stump.
Robin Uthappa also lbw
Sams also got Moeen Ali caught on the fourth ball of the first over. They too could not open the account. On the fourth ball of the second over, Jasprit Bumrah also lbw Robin Uthappa. Former batsman Aakash Chopra, commentating on Star Sports, said that according to me, Conway was not out, but the umpire did not give him out. Due to lack of light, the team had to pay a big price. Former cricketer Irfan Pathan also raised questions on Conway’s dismissal. After this, Rituraj Gaikwad was also caught on the ball of Sams after scoring 7 runs.
