A controversial decision took place in Match 59 of the IPL 2022, which was played between the Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium on Thursday. After MI won the toss and put CSK into bat, opener Devon Conway was adjudged LBW and on the second ball but was unable to use DRS due to power issues inside the stadium. While the DRS returned from the fifth over, Conway’s dismissal triggered a CSK top-order collapse. Fans were not happy after Conway’s dismissal and took to Twitter to express their disappointment.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the DRS controversy:
“Unlucky for Devon Conway, the ball was missing leg stump. He couldn’t take the DRS due to powercut in the stadium,” a user tweeted.

CSK were eventually bowled out for a paltry of 97, with MS Dhoni top-scoring with a 33-ball 35.
In reply, MI also suffered a top-order collapse, but Tilak Varma’s unbeaten 34 and Tim David’s 7-ball 16 cameo propelled them to a five-wicket win.
