After securing victory in a nail-biting match against Punjab Kings in the ongoing IPL 2024 tournament, Mumbai Indians have entered into a controversy as the netizens are accusing the team of ‘DRS Cheating’. In a video being widely shared on the internet, netizens claim that Mumbai Indian's Tim David could be seen ‘signalling for DRS’ to be taken.

A large number of social media users have been sharing the video accusing the Hardik Pandya franchise of doing ‘DRS Cheating.’

 

The incident also led sharp reactions from former cricket players and commentators. Reacting on the incident, former Australia cricketer Tom Moody urged for the inclusion of a third umpire for better decision and expertise.

“It’s time we considered having specialist 3rd umpires, too many questionable decisions being made. Some umpires are better suited on field, the 3rd umpire requires experience and a certain skill set," wrote on X.

What was the controversy all about?

During the MI vs PBKS IPL 2024 match, Arshdeep Singh's delivery was full and way outside off-stump, very close to the tramline in the 15th over. Suryakumar tried to chase the innings. At that time, the umpire deemed it a legal delivery. 

However, the camera shifted the attention to MI dugout, where the head coach, Mark Boucher, was seen gesturing to Suryakumar that it was a wide and Tim David, along with the batting coach Kieron Pollard, was seen urging the batter to take a review, by making the 'T' sign using his hands, as per Wisden.

What does the rule book say?

A player on the field is forbidden to "seek assistance from any person off the field of play in order to decide whether to request a referral to the TV Umpire", PTI cited Wisden, the Article 2.15 (b) of the IPL Code of Conduct for Players and Team Officials.

Though the rules did not allow for it, the decision was sent upstairs to the third umpire for a review. PBKS skipper Sam Curran was seen pointing his finger at the dugout before the decision was referred to the third umpire.

Later, the decision was overturned and MI batters were allowed to take a wide. Afterwards, Suryakumar hit Arshdeep for a boundary on the very next ball.
