Former Pakistan cricketer Hasan Raza has made another controversial remark, saying that India is manipulating the Decision Review System (DRS) in the 2023 World Cup. On Sunday, November 6, India beat South Africa by 243 runs at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Ravindra Jadeja was India’s star performer with the ball, picking up five wickets, including the wicket of Rassie van der Dussen.
Raza said that Jadeja’s dismissal of van der Dussen was suspicious, as the ball appeared to be hitting the leg stump. The on-field umpire turned down the appeal, but India took the review and the decision was overturned.
“The impact was in line, but the ball was headed towards the leg stump,” Hasan Raza said. “Like everyone else, I am just sharing my opinion. I am saying that such things should be checked. DRS is being manipulated and that is clearly visible.”
Raza also spoke about the match between South Africa and Pakistan, where Tabraiz Shamsi was given not out off Haris Rauf when the match was hanging in the balance.

“It was not the first time,” Hasan Raza said. “The review in the match between Pakistan and South Africa and the last wicket partnership. They did not even apologise. Home conditions and home advantages come into play.”
Earlier, Raza sparked controversy when he said that the ICC and BCCI were giving India different balls, helping them get more swing than usual. Former Pakistani pacer Wasim Akram later lashed out, asking Raza not to tarnish the reputation of cricket in Pakistan. Raza’s comments have been met with mixed reactions.
Some fans have agreed with him, saying that there is a lot of suspicion surrounding India’s use of DRS. Others have defended India, saying that Raza is making excuses for Pakistan’s poor performance in the World Cup. It is important to note that Raza’s comments are purely speculative and there is no evidence to support his claims. The ICC has not commented on Raza’s allegations.
