On Thursday, May 12th, Chennai Super Kings batsman Devon Conway was caught in the middle of an unfortunate umpiring situation. The New Zealand batsman was trapped in the pads by Australian Daniel Sams on the first over while playing against the Mumbai Indians at Wankhede Stadium.
The umpire ruled him out despite the fact that the ball appeared to be going down the leg side. Conway was unable to go for the review because the stadium’s Decision Review System was unavailable due to a power outage.

Devon Conway was unable to appeal the umpire’s decision in the first over of the Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians match, causing controversy. Rohit Sharma won the toss and choose to field first. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Conway stepped onto the field to begin the innings with the goal of putting up a huge total.
Daniel Sams managed to dismiss Conway lbw on the second ball of the game after taking a single off the ball. Despite the fact that the ball appeared to be going down the leg, Conway was unable to review the decision due to a power outage at Wankhede Stadium.
Conway has been in excellent form since his return to the team following his marriage. After scoring three consecutive half-centuries, he was expected to put in another strong showing against the Mumbai Indians. Unfortunately, that was not possible.
For the previous five years, CSK and MI have ruled the IPL, passing the title back and forth. But the tables have turned this time, and fate hasn’t helped either. Their start to the season was dreadful, as they started losing match after match.
CSK needs to win this game in order to keep their playoff aspirations alive. Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, have been eliminated, but if they win this game, they would end CSK’s campaign, which is on the verge of being over.
