Gujarat Titans batting Matthew Wade will have to face punishment after his emotional outburst as he was seen throwing objects into the Wankidi Stadium dressing room. Although it is not known if it caused any damage, the British Chamber of Commerce and Industry, which administers the IPL, has imposed penalties on the Australian hitter and that is ahead of it, according to a press release. This all happened after it was delivered wrongly. He beat the ball that Ultra Edge didn’t catch and that led to his departure.

“Wade has admitted a Level 1 offense under Section 2.5 of the IPL Code of Conduct and has agreed to the penalty. For Level 1 Code of Conduct violations, the decision of the match referee is final and binding.”
The left-hander is seen throwing his helmet away and then smashing his racket several times inside the GT locker room after being pushed back into the suite. Even RCB’s Virat Kohli was seen comforting the Australian goalkeeper. Wade was sure he underestimated a powerful blow from Glenn Maxwell and took no time to review the decision on the field, which was out.
However, despite the apparent deviation in the ball’s path before hitting the liner, UltraEdge did not detect it and the television referee remained with the referee’s call on the field. Wade had no choice but to reluctantly walk to the bunker. Kohli consoles him and taps his back as he takes his long walk in frustration.
The smoldering Virat Kohli is back at his level with a fantastic half century as the royal challengers Bangalore survived the IPL qualifying race with a landslide victory of eight wickets on the Gujarat Titans table toppers here on Thursday.
This was after captain Hardik Pandya scored 47 grit 62 taking the GT to 168 competitive for five after racket selection.
Kohli (73 of 54) and captain Fa du Plessis (44 of 38) made a 115-game winning podium before Glenn Maxwell (40 out of 18) went to the ballistics to secure the team’s home run at 18.4.
Thanks to this win, RCB moved to fourth place in the standings with 16 points but will have to wait for the Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians match on Saturday to find out their fate. Losing Delhi would secure RCB playoff berth.
