Controversy: TV Umpire Was Shown Wrong Replay Video for Ben Cutting’s Wicket

Peshawar Zalmi overpowered Quetta Gladiators in a one-sided contest on Thursday. While it was very difficult for Gladiators to chase down a big target of 171 in just 15 overs, Zalmi’s win was marred by controversy.

It was due to a blunder on the part of the technical team while checking Wahab Riaz’s no-ball. Quetta’s only hope, Ben Cutting, was given out on a ball that was adjudged as a legal delivery by the TV umpire.

It wasn’t without a twist though. The footage recorded from the stumps, which everyone saw on TV for Ben Cutting’s dismissal, was not the original ball. It was the footage of a previous delivery and Ben Cutting can be clearly seen at the non-striker’s end.

Here’s the video:

Even the fielders and spectators thought it was a clear no-ball and the umpire had also called back Cutting to the pitch. However, it was later given as a legal delivery to the anguish and disappointment of the Australian all-rounder.
