IPL 2023 | Twitter in splits as cameraman fools broadcasters into gifting Shaw and DC six runs

Cameraman and broadcasters are usually known for their precision while covering a major cricket league but the IPL 2023 has been an exception to it. However, the broadcasters took it up a notch when they mistakenly added six runs to Delhi’s scoreboard after the cameraman’s faulty camerawork.

Delhi Capitals have nothing to lose white playing against Punjab Kings and their batters have capitalised on the opportunity getting to 190/2 from 19 overs. Prithvi Shaw scored a fifty while Rilee Rossouw was tearing apart the opposition bowling unit. DC’s batting made waves but broadcasters stole the limelight on Prithvi Shaw’s dismissal with a horrendous blunder. 

Sam Curran banged the last delivery of the 15th over short and Shaw, who was on strike went for a pull. As the cameraman moved his camera towards the crowd, it appeared as if the ball has sailed miles away and had landed in the stands. However, there was a twist yet to come by followed by another unexpected occurrence. 

The cameraman adjusted his angle after the spectators thought that it was a six, and it was unraveled that Atharva Taide had taken a catch at deep square leg to dismiss the batter. Not just viewers, broadcasters were also fooled by the camerawork and they added six extra runs to DC’s scoreboard as well as Shaw’s personal score. 

The incident sent the Twitterati into splits as such sloppy work from broadcasters is rare to see.
