It was seen on television that the ball hit the bat for the first time. The third umpire dismissed Mathews. However, once again the third umpire saw the review as Mathews did not go off the field. It clearly shows that the ball has touched the bat for the first time. Then the third umpire changed his decision and declared Mathews not out.
This is said to be the first time in cricket history that the third umpire changed his own decision. Also, due to this, the review system is also being questioned.
