In the 14th match of the 11th season of Indian Premier League (IPL) on Tuesday, Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by 46 runs at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
However, other than the fact that it was MI’s first win, the umpires and broadcasters have also been making the headlines.
First, Hardik Pandya was given not-out in review despite the snickometer showing a slight edge.

Now, the broadcaster is in the line of fire for running a wrong replay during the review. Jasprit Bumrah sent Umesh Yadav back to stands and on-field umpire immediately asked to see if he Bumrah had overstepped. However, in the replay that was shown to the umpire, Umesh can be seen at the non-striker’s end, and Bumrah’s delivery was okay.
So I was just watching the replay of Umesh Yadav getting out. When they checked for the no ball, they showed Umesh Yadav on non strike. @imVkohli @IPL @StarSportsIndia #Fail #Cheat @RCBTweets pic.twitter.com/WVBO1s9YrP

Nobody noticed this until a Twitter user @ronak_169 brought it to the notice of ESPNcricinfo.
