The 67th match of the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League is happening right now at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, where table-toppers Gujarat Titans are locking horns with three-time runners-up Royal Challengers Bangalore. Matthew Wade lost his wicket in a questionable manner during the game against the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Speaking about the match between the Gujarat Titans and the Royal Challengers Bangalore, the Ahmedabad-based franchise won the toss and opted to bat first. Here’s what Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya said at the toss:
“We will bat first. It’s just the kind of situation we are in. We have done well as a group this season but we have not capitalized while batting first, so we’ll look to do that. We have made one change. Lockie comes in for Alzarri. We asked all the boys. They were all pumped to play all the games.”
Gujarat Titans got off a fantastic start as Wriddhiman Saha smashed 14 runs off the first over of the innings bowled by birthday boy Siddarth Kaul. However, RCB bounced back as Glenn Maxwell took a one-handed catch to send Shubman Gill back to the dressing room.
Matthew Wade, who has struggled to make an impact in the Gujarat Titans’ colors, failed to make an impact this time as well. He looked in good touch as he smashed two fours and a six in his brief knock, but when he nicked a delivery from Glenn Maxwell onto his pads, the umpire ruled him out.
The Gujarat Titans star immediately asked for a review because he knew he had nicked it. However, the third umpire did not detect anything on the ultra edge. Since he did not have proper evidence, he did not overturn the decision.

Here’s how fans on Twitter reacted to Wade’s dismissal and how he threw his bat and helmet to take out his frustration in the dressing room:

There was a visible deflection as the ball passes the bat/glove, I really can't understand how ultra edge works. Not surprised that Matthew Wade was so shocked.

What a comedy lol. Matthew Wade told it hit the bat and immediately took the review. All RCB fielders went back to their positions before Ultraedge showed a straight line 🤣 #RCBvGT
