Ball-tracking betrayal! Shadab Khan left fuming in PSL 2024 after DRS howler

Islamabad United captain Shadab Khan blamed technology for being at fault for his side's defeat to Quetta Gladiators in PSL 2024

The Shadab Khan-led Islamabad United were the latest victims of ‘technology’ as they lost the game to Quetta Gladiators in PSL 2024. The incident occurred as Salman Agha was bowling to Rilee Rossouw in the 11th over. A fuming Shadab pinned the blame on technology for the crucial loss.

Rossouw attempted a sweep off Agha, but missed it completely as the ball went on to crash into his pads. The on-field umpire gave his decision as ‘out’ after an appeal following which the Gladiators batter reviewed.

However, much to the shock of the United players, the ball-tracking system showed that the ball went on to completely miss the stumps. A close look at the ball-tracking animation revealed the error, with the impact point used for the decision a distance from where the ball had hit the pad. 

What does Shadab have to say?

I think technology was at fault for this loss. We were shown a different ball as to the review ( the review of Rossouw). I bowled 4 overs as a leg spinner, it wasn’t turning much. This one showed impact outside off and spinning away further. In a big tournament like this, there shouldn’t be such mistakes,” Shadab said after the loss.

The Gladiators won the game by three wickets, with Rossouw going on to win the Player of the Match. He stayed unbeaten on 38 runs as his side finished the game with 1.4 overs left to spare.
