What happened on Yuzvendra’s ball that angry Irfan demanded to change the rule, said this is wrong

New Delhi. Be it cricket or any other sport, the rules are made very carefully. Despite this, many times such situations come to the fore in the game, in front of which the rules (ICC Rules) become helpless. The same happened in IPL 2022 as well. In this match between Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals, something happened on the ball of Yuzvendra Chahal that commentator Irfan Pathan demanded the ICC to change the rules. He said that this is wrong and the ICC should come forward to rectify it.

This match of Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals was played on 11 May. Batting first in this match, Rajasthan scored 160 runs for 5 wickets. Delhi started well in reply and when they scored 56 for one in 8 overs, Yuzvendra Chahal came to bowl. Chahal hit the batsmen a lot in this over and even the sixth ball went on the wicket, but the rich David Warner escaped from getting out. Irfan Pathan’s comment came on this ball.

The ball hit the stump, but Warner was not out
Actually, David Warner was completely dodged on this ball of Yuzvendra Chahal. The ball hit the stump and the light of the bails got lit. However, lucky Warner survived the dismissal as the bails did not fall. On this Irfan Pathan said that this is wrong. If the light of the bells goes on then it should be given out. Irfan Pathan said that the ICC should change its rules regarding this. The former all-rounder gave examples from DRS to Rabada’s fast ball in favor of his point.

Bells do not fall in the decision of DRS…
Irfan Pathan said that when DRS is taken for LBW, technology does not tell whether bails will fall or not. If the ball is seen hitting the stumps in the review, it is given out. If this way out can be given under DRS, then when the ball is hitting the straight stump and the light of the bails is on, then how can it be given not out. Irfan also tried to explain the speed of the ball. He said, ‘It is not that the bails did not fall due to the slow delivery of Yuzvendra. We have seen that Kagiso Rabada’s ball also hit the stumps and the bails did not fall. So it is not a matter of speed.

Irfan Pathan has power
Cricket lovers know that not only the nuances of the game have changed with technology, but its equipment has also changed. Like the bales that were earlier, they were light due to being of wood. That’s why after hitting the stump, she falls quickly. With the change of technology, lights were installed in the bells. These plastic bails became heavy due to this and it often happens that after the ball is stumped, it either falls late or does not fall many times. As it happened on Chahal’s ball. In such a situation, Irfan’s argument of LBW decision under DRS seems right.
