There was a match between Mumbai Indians and Punjab Kings on Thursday. But regarding this match, it is being said that Mumbai Indians have committed foul against Punjab Kings. So did he really gain 5 runs wrongly? In the video going viral, Mumbai Indians, captained by Hardik Pandya, are seen doing something which is not in accordance with the spirit or rules of IPL. On the other hand, Punjab Kings captain Sam Curran expressed his disagreement against it. But the umpire seemed to ignore his objections.

Now it is not known how much truth is there in what was shown in the video. But at first glance, this raises questions about the Mumbai Indians team. This incident related to Mumbai Indians, who are being accused of dishonesty, happened during their 15th over. Whatever happened was seen on the last ball of that over.

The decision to seek review came from the dugout.

During Mumbai Indians' innings in the 15th over, due to what happened on the last ball, Suryakumar Yadav signalled for review on a wide ball from Arshdeep Singh. This means that Yadav had asked for a review of the wide ball. After watching the TV replays, teammate Tim David is seen signalling Suryakumar from the dugout whether a review should be taken or not.

This is against the rules because the decision to take a review should be given to the player on the field. However, there are indications from the Mumbai dugout that a review should be done. When Punjab Kings captain Sam Curran saw this, he protested against it. But the umpire ignored Karan's objections.

MI got 5 runs due to a foul?

In the end, Mumbai took the review. The field umpire consults the third umpire, and it is determined that the ball is actually wide. Punjab bowler Arshdeep had to bowl the ball again, on which Suryakumar Yadav hit a four. This means that Mumbai Indians gained 5 runs due to the review decision from the dugout.

In this match, Mumbai Indians batted first and scored 192 runs in 20 overs. While chasing this target, Punjab Kings' momentum stopped 9 runs short.
