Apologies to PCB for the Rossouw lbw error, Hawk-Eye

According to ESPNcricinfo, Hawk-Eye acknowledged a mistake made during Islamabad United’s three-wicket loss to Quetta Gladiators on Thursday and sent a letter to the PCB apologizing for it.

The Gladiators’ innings were in their eleventh over when the incident happened. Off the final delivery of the over, Gladiators captain Rilee Rossouw moved across and attempted to sweep Salman Ali Agha but missed, with the ball hitting his front pad. Aleem Dar upheld an enthused appeal from the fielding side, and Gladiators promptly reviewed it.

In the end, Hawk-Eye concluded that the ball had struck the left-hander outside the stump line and that it had the potential to miss off stump as well. The slow-motion replay seemed to show the ball straightening instead of gripping and turning, which clearly surprised both the fielding side and umpire Dar when they saw it on the big screen. A possible discrepancy between where the ball had struck Rossouw and where Hawk-Eye’s tracking indicated it had struck was also hinted at by static images of the impact on the pad, with the former much more likely to be in line with the stumps.
