In this pursuit, the controversial moments can often transpire in achieving their set goals.
On some occasions, the players may get involved in heated encounters with the opposition players. Moreover, the bad performances invite further controversies to break into the team as well. In this article, we will look at those 5 moments which created controversies this IPL season.
1. A wrong LBW decision against Virat Kohli
In Match 18 of IPL 2022 between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), the latter chased down the target with nine balls to spare. However, the first ball of the penultimate over witnessed the youngster Dewald Brevis dismissing Virat Kohli LBW for a well-made 48.
Although it looked plumb to the naked eye, the former Indian captain immediately opted to take a review. The ultra-edge displayed simultaneous connection of ball with the bat and the pad, but with not enough evidence to overturn the decision, he was deemed out.
Kohli smashed his bat on the ground in distress as he made his way back to the dressing room. The social media and cricket fraternity went abuzz with their reactions to the dismissal.
