The 22nd match of IPL 2020 is being played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab. The match saw a comical incident when Kings XI Punjab batsman Mujib ur Rehman demanded DRS even after the third umpire was given out.
This incident is of the 14th over of Punjab’s innings when Khalil Ahmed was bowling. The fifth ball of the over was caught by Johnny Bairstow behind the Mujib wicket. The umpire did not give out earlier on Khalil and Bairstow’s appeal and waited for Warner to ask for DRS.

By the time Warner was talking to the players, DRS had 15 seconds to finish. The on-field umpire was skeptical of his decision and then turned to the third umpire.
The third umpire used all his technique and found that Mujib’s bat was hit and he dismissed Mujib. Mujib then asked for DRS and got the third umpire to once again examine his decision. The third umpire again found that the ball had gone to Johnny Bairstow’s glove with the outside edge of his bat. The third umpire then called him out.

Mujib ur Rehman’s decision to take DRS again was a really laughable one.
Not to mention, Hyderabad has given Punjab a target of 202 runs while batting the puzzle in this match. For Punjab, David Warner (52) and Johnny Bairstow (97) added 160 runs for the first wicket but after that the entire team collapsed like cards. Hyderabad could score only 41 runs in the last 5 overs.
