Hawk-Eye Confirms DRS Error in PSL 2024 Quetta vs. Islamabad

The cricket match between Islamabad United and Quetta Gladiators in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2024 at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on February 22 became controversial due to issues with the Decision Review System (DRS).


In the 11th over of Quetta Gladiators’ batting, Rilee Rossouw was at the crease, having scored 13 runs from 18 balls. When Agha Salman from Islamabad United bowled, Rossouw attempted a sweep shot, but the ball hit his pads. The on-field umpire declared Rossouw ‘Out’ after Islamabad United appealed.


Rossouw wasn’t sure about the decision, so he asked for a review using the DRS. Islamabad United’s players were surprised when the replay showed that the ball didn’t even come close to hitting the stumps. According to the DRS, the ball was spinning away from the stumps, indicating it wasn’t a clean hit.


Because of this mistake in the DRS, Islamabad United lost the advantage. Rossouw, taking advantage of the situation, played a tough innings of 33 runs off 38 balls, helping his team chase down the target of 139 runs with three wickets remaining and 1.4 overs left.


The error caused a lot of criticism from players and cricket experts. To make matters worse, Hawk-Eye, the technology used for ball tracking in the DRS, admitted to making a mistake in judging Rossouw as not out against Salman Ali Agha.


It’s important to note that Hawk-Eye is the only technology approved by the International Cricket Council for ball tracking. It has been a key part of the Decision Review System since it was first tested in 2008.
