The current season of IPL has seen some worst umpiring moments ever in the history of cricket. Be it Nitin Menon or the on-filed umpire Chirra Ravikanthreddy during the last night’s match between CSK and MI, have just disappointed the cricket audiences in every way possible. Tweeple are even questioning ‘are umpires not eligible for fines?’
Ever since the on-filed umpire declared Hrithik Shokeen as out, he had to face the wrath of tweeple and MI fans. However, later the batsman got saved by the DRS but that’s where the CSK fans felt the game became unfair for their team. As later when Devon Conwey was again given out by the on-field umpire, he didn’t get to use the DRS due to power cut.
That’s when tweeple again trolled the umpiring standards of IPL 2022 and CSK fans called the game unfair. The fans of Chennai Super Kings have more reason to sulk as now after last night’s loss the team just like Mumbai Indians is also out of the tournament.
Mumbai Indians defeated Chennai Super Kings with five wickets at the Wankhede Stadium and registered their third win in twelve games of IPL 2022. MI won the toss and chose to bowl first. MI pacer bowled out CSK batters for just 98 runs, giving them the second lowest total to fight.
On the other hand, MI batters also struggled to bat against CSK pacers but with the help of Tilak Varma’s unbeaten knock of 34 runs off 32 balls, Mumbai Indians managed to score 103 for five in 14.5 overs and registered their third win of the season.
Mumbai Indians was already out of the tournament and now with this defeat, Chennai Super Kings can also not qualify for the play-offs. Both the teams are positioned at the bottom two positions and can only affect the chances of other teams to enter the play-offs.
The most successful teams of Indian Premiere League, Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings couldn’t keep their best foot forward and seems like the Mega Auction 2022 came as a nightmare for both the teams.
