The game between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Lucknow Super Giants witnessed a heated moment when Josh Hazelwood got lucky as referee Chris Gaffney didn’t call his ball wide which he certainly was. Striking hitter Marcus Stoinis was fuming with anger after this incident with the umpire.
Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Lucknow Super Giants by 18 points to record their 5th win of IPL 2022. Skipper RCB FAF from Plessis and Australian fast bowler Josh Hazelwood were the stars of their team as they turned the tide of the game with their performances. However, what caught everyone’s attention was a controversial decision made by referee Chris Gaffney during the game.
The incident happened on the first ball of the 18th when Josh Hazelwood played wide for Marcus Stoinis which trailed a little in its fold. However, Chris Gaffney didn’t give a wide and Marcus Stoinis was fuming over the incident. Speaking of which, Josh Hazelwood admitted he got lucky with that call.
“I tried to turn around and get back to my mark as fast as I could. I got lucky on that one [on the ball not called a wide before Stoinis wicket] so I might have to get him a beer after that,” Josh Hazlewood said during the post-match presentation.
Josh Hazelwood finished with numbers of 4/25 in the game against Lucknow Super Giants.
