It happens very rarely in cricket that a dismissal gets converted into a dead ball. However, one such incident took place in the ongoing match between Gujarat Titans (GT) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). The wicket of the RCB batter, Mahipal Lomror was reversed to a dead ball as the ball had hit a cable of satellite television before landing in the hand of David Miller. Gujarat Titans have been a strong unit in IPL 2022 and they have started strongly against RCB.

RCB skipper, Faf du Plessis won the toss and opted to bat first. Their decision turned out to be very correct as Virat Kohli regained his form with a half-century. Rajat Patidar also scored a half-century and both of them stitched a crucial partnership.

Mahipal Lomror played a cameo of 16 runs from eight balls but he got a lifeline during his stay at the crease. Alzarri Joseph was bowling the last over of the innings and he bowled a full-length delivery to Lomror.

The batter tried to clear the long-on boundary but mistimed it and David Miller caught it near the ropes. However, there was a twist in the dismissal as the batter was sure that the ball had hit a cable of the satellite television.
