Might Cost A World Cup: Fans Call For Cricket Rule Change

IPL 2020: the ICC was called to make a modification to a rule after Mumbai Indians were restricted a run in a match. It was the boundary-hitting West Indian batsman Kieron Pollard who was at the crease and made a whopping 47 runs off 20 balls. 

It was during Mumbai’s previous match against Kings XI Punjab when the viewers noticed that Kieron had his single run restricted during a DRS review. Mohammad Shami who was bowling the 17th over of the match appealed for an LBW against Pollard. 

Pollard on the other hand challenged back to the appeal made by Md Shami. Fans were surprised when Pollard’s challenge was ultimately successful as the replay showed Pollard got an inside edge on the ball.
