Kolkata Knight Riders vs Mumbai Indians, IPL 2022: MI skipper Rohit Sharma’s lean patch in the Indian Premier League continued as he was dismissed on just 2 against Kolkata Knight Riders on Monday at Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai. However, Rohit’s dismissal raised questions over the Ultraedge technology as some fans were unimpressed with the third umpire’s decision.
His dismissal, however, created a controversy as the majority of IPL fans felt that he was not out there and that the umpire hurried to take the final decision
In the review process, the television officially first checked the ultra edge to verify whether Rohit Sharma got the edge or not. The ultraedge showcased a huge murmur and the decision looked like a straightforward conclusion.
But a close look at the whole process was telling of an obvious technical glitch, as the murmur came on screen well before the ball hit the right-handers willow and stayed that way when the ball went closer to the bat, leading to massive doubts.

Unfair decisions by on field umpiring are somewhat acceptable than getting these kind of unacceptable technical error. #RohitSharma #IPL2022 #MIvsKKR #KKRvsMI #MumbaiIndians pic.twitter.com/Vm2DCL3Qz7— Sathish Pandiyan (@sathishpandi25) May 9, 2022
