Mumbai Indians registered a narrow nine run win against Punjab Kings in a match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Friday.

After the completion of the match, a video has emerged over various social media platforms in which the Hardik Pandya-led franchise has been accused of doing ‘DRS Cheating’.

In the video, Mumbai’s Tim David could be allegedly seen signaling Suryakumar Yadav to take DRS for reviewing a wide ball, before realising that he is on camera.

The video has reportedly gone viral over various social media platforms within no time. The incident prompted accusations of cheating against the Mumbai Indians. In the video, Punjab Kings’ stand-in captain Sam Curran could be seen complaining the same to the on-field umpire. However, no action was taken.

Fans were left fuming over the development. They questioned the standards of umpiring in the league this season.

In his response over the development, former Australia cricketer Tom Moody took to social media questioning the umpiring.

“It’s time we considered having specialist 3rd umpires, too many questionable decisions being made. Some umpires are better suited on field, the 3rd umpire requires experience and a certain skill set,” Moody wrote on X (earlier known as Twitter).
