The history, cultural conflict, language differences and struggles of the Spanish Civil War make this sporting rivalry intense and fierce.

When it comes to cricket, there is the Ashes contest between England and Australia that has a 140-year history of competitiveness. However, in the Indian Premier League, in its short 13-year period, there is one rivalry that has managed to grab the attention of billions of fans in the country.

Conway wanted to take a review but was told that there was no DRS available due to a power cut at the stadium.

A perplexed Conway had no choice but to walk back to the pavilion for a duck. Non-striker Ruturaj Gaikwad had a word with the umpires. Even MI captain Rohit Sharma joined the conversation as Conway continued his slow walk back to the pavilion.

Replays showed that the ball in all probability would have gone on to miss the leg stump and Conway would have survived had the DRS technology been avail, But it was not so late when people started to find the fixture
by Mumbai and the way umpires helped them, because when Ac, lights, TV’s in the pavilions and the hospitality rooms has the power to work, But no power for DRS, made it even more suspicious.

And the funny statement “that DRS is not available due to a power cut issue in the stadium” became a viral meme. The meme engineers started their work, by creating the memes of the situation.

And the game ended with Mi winning it.

But at the end of the day, MI could have won the match, But CSK has won the hearts of its fans by playing honest and giving a good fight till the end.CSK missed their chance to qualify for playoffs but will come back stronger next year….By this, the match comes to an end and earning it the title, the worst match of Ipl history.
