WATCH : Jordan Cox walks back to pavilion despite arrogantly opting for DRS


Multan Sultans ignited the match with a dazzling start, electing to bowl first after winning the toss. In the early exchanges, Islamabad United’s top-order batsmen, Alex Hales and Colin Munro, faced adversity, departing just before the powerplay with the scorecard showing 32/2.

The focus then shifted to Jordan Cox, poised to inject momentum into the innings. Despite his valiant effort, contributing 41 runs off 27 balls, his dismissal sparked confusion, compounded by an ill-advised DRS review, adding a layer of intrigue to the unfolding cricket saga.

In the third delivery of the 12th over, Cox attempted a reverse sweep, narrowly missing the ball. The Sultans appealed fervently, and umpire Chris Gaffaney upheld their plea, signaling Cox’s departure. Ball-tracking technology supported the decision, confirming impact with the off stump.

Despite clear evidence and Cox’s initial acceptance of the decision, he opted for a DRS review before leaving the field. Interestingly, as the replay unfolded, it became apparent that Cox was already resigned to his fate, continuing to walk off the field and briefly pausing near the boundary rope only to confirm his dismissal on the screen.

The cricket community on Twitter openly pondered one question: “What prompted Cox to go for the DRS when he was already certain of his dismissal?”
