IPL 2022, GT vs RCB | Internet reacts as Matthew Wade given LBW despite clear deflection in a bizarre incident
Matthew Wade was dismissed in a controversial manner against RCB
DRS was introduced to increase the accuracy of umpiring decisions but in spite of turning out to be a boon, it has proved to be a curse sometimes. One such incident happened in the game between Gujarat and Bangalore as Matthew Wade got LBW in spite of replays showing clear deflection of the bat.
Gujarat Titans have opted to bat first against Royal Challengers Bangalore but they lost a couple of wickets in the powerplay. Wriddhimam Saha was looking in good touch for the team but Shubhman Gill and Matthew Wade were sent back to the pavilion on low scores. While Gill was dismissed by the brilliant fielding of Glenn Maxwell, Wade was dismissed courtesy of an error in DRS.
Glenn Maxwell was bowling the fifth over of the innings and he aimed a delivery in the stumps on the second ball. Wade attempted a sweep on the ball but missed it and it seemed like an under edge onto pads. Umpire raised his finger but the batter opted for DRS immediately in response. The real-time replay was showing a clear deflection but UltraEdge showed something different.
As the ball passed near the bat, UltraEdge didn’t show any spike and the third umpire continued with the on-field decision. Wade was seen livid with the decision and a flaw in the technology was exposed.

Mathew Wade is so poor at cricket.— Aqeel (@AqeelViews) May 19, 2022
Technology is there to eliminate errors in judgement but it is the opposite these days 3rd umpire should check all the things, bad luck Mathew Wade there was clear deviation of the bat but 3rd umpire couldn't saw it. #RCBvGT #AavaDe #RCB pic.twitter.com/QGMrN7c7Uu— Taif Rahman (@taif_twts) May 19, 2022
