The focus was on Rishabh Pant’s decision not to take a review. After Tim David appeared to nick the ball behind as MI defeated DC by five wickets to end the latter’s hopes of making the IPL 2022 playoffs. The umpire ruled it not out, and Pant eventually decided against the review after a lengthy discussion with bowler Shardul Thakur. Replays revealed that the ball was indeed edged by David, who went on to punish Delhi by smashing 34 off 11 deliveries to secure his team’s victory.
MI vs DC: Ravi Shastri was perplexed by Pant’s decision to forego the DRS.
Shastri said that common sense demanded that he take the review with two reviews remaining and five overs to go.
“What does common sense call for? Okay, so there’s Rishabh Pant and Shardul Thakur, but what about the others? Common sense dictates that you have five overs left, two reviews, Tim David has just come in. You’ve taken a wicket, and you have a great chance of quickly taking two wickets. There are still five overs to go. And you had the advantage, so you had to take it. ” Shastri said on Star Sports after the match, before adding, “It’s a no-brainer.””
“This is a difficult pill to swallow. It’s as if a balloon burst above them. They’ll be up all night worrying about this one because it’s a place for the play-offs that you missed out on “He stated.
The defeat kept Royal Challengers Bangalore in fourth place, while Delhi missed out on the two points needed to qualify for the play-offs.
“They are solely responsible for their actions. You can’t make excuses, you can’t hide behind anything, you lost it more than the Mumbai Indians won it. You did not deserve to qualify, but RCB did “According to Shastri.
In the playoffs, RCB will face Gujarat Titans, Rajasthan Royals, and Lucknow Super Giants.
