IPL 2020: This is Why Two Reviews Were Taken When SRH Appealed for KXIP’s Mujeeb-Ur-Rahman Dismissal 

A bizarre incident took place during the 22nd  match of IPL 2020 between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab. SRH fast bowler Khaleel Ahmed was bowling the 14th over and on the fifth delivery of the over, something unusual happened.

KXIP’s Mujeeb-Ur-Rahman was on strike and Ahmed bowled a fuller delivery, which the batsman tried to play by bringing his bat down. But, the ball moved past the bat and landed in wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow’s gloves.

SRH made a loud appeal for caught behind, but the umpire did not seem convinced and gave Rahman not out. Viewers would have thought that SRH captain would go for the review, but he did not do so.

Much to the surprise of players and viewers, the on-field umpire referred it to the third umpire to confirm if it was a bump ball. But things became complicated for the third umpire as he could not have access to the Ultra Edge because the review was asked by the on-field umpire, not the SRH captain. The soft signal was not out.

As the third umpire did not get access to the Ultra Edge, the batsman was given out. However, while returning towards the pavilion, he got a signal from the dressing room to go for the review and he took.

This time, the TV umpires could make use of the Ultra Edge as the review was asked by a player. The Ultra Edge suggested that the bat was involved and Rahman was given out. This led to KL-Rahul led Punjab losing a review.
