DRS, April 22: Drama ft. Virat Kohli, ‘expensive’ Starc and finisher Rahul Tewatia

Welcome to our special segment DRS or the Daily Review System. In this, InsideSport will provide you with the top stories of IPL from a day before that you might have missed in the hustle and bustle of your busy life

What could be more controversial than a decision that involves a third umpire and Virat Kohli? Yes, that was the highlight of the double-header on Sunday. RCB lost to KKR at the Eden Gardens by a heartbreaking one run, not so heartbreaking if you are a RCB fan for the last 16 years. One can feel sad for Virat, but rules are rules and everyone shall abide by it when it comes to cricket. On the other hand, there’s IPL’s most-expensive buy Mitchell Starc, who also happens to be one of the most expensive bowler in IPL 2024 so far.

In the second game – PBKS vs GT – it was all about the Titans, their bowling and Rahul Tewatia. GT clinched a comfortable three-wicket win against PBKS, thanks to the cameo played by Rahul Tewatia. The GT finisher turned to clock back as he got his side across the line, seemingly effortlessly. Let’s revisit some of the top headlines that grabbed eyeballs on Sunday.

Virat Kohli adds fuel to DRS fire

Virat Kolhi was absolutely furious with the umpires after his dismissal in KKR vs RCB. The RCB opener was given out after being caught and bowled off a delivery that looked like it was above the waist height. On reviewing the decision, ball-tracking showed that the delivery would have been below waist height had he maintained his original stance.

Most ‘expensive’ Mitchell Starc

PL’s most expensive players Mitchell Starc once again proved too expensive, giving away 55 runs in 3 overs. Needing 21 runs in the last over, Starc was hit for 3 sixes by tailender Karn Sharma before Starc took his wicket to end RCB’s resistance.

Tewatia emerges from the ashes

Rahul Tewatia turned the clock back as he once again proved why he is one of the best finishers the IPL has ever seen. The GT star’s cameo ensured a smooth 3-wicket win for the side against PBKS. Tewatia dealt in boundaries as he helped the Titans chase down the target, striking 7 boundaries en route.

Too slow, Iyer!

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) find themselves at the center of this problem once again, with captain Shreyas Iyer facing a potential fine of INR 24 lakh for his second offense. During their recent nervy win over the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB), KKR failed to bowl their allotted 20 overs within the stipulated 90 minutes. 

Gambhir at it again!

KKR mentor Gautam Gambhir and coach Chandrakant Pandit were seen arguing with officials ahead of the 19th over. As per reports, the discussion was regarding allowing Rahmanullah Gurbaz to take the field in place of Sunil Narine. The incident occured in the game against RCB at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Unwanted records continue to mount for RCB

Another day and another hefty defeat for the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB). The side, which has had T20 legends like Ab de Villiers, Chris Gayle, Glenn Maxwell, and Virat Kohli, has chased a total of over 200 just once in the last 17 years.
