Matthew Wade has been filmed in an angry dressing room blow-up after copping a howler of a decision in the IPL on Thursday.

In action for Gujurat Titans against Royal Challengers Bangalore, the Aussie batter was given out lbw on 16 from the bowling of compatriot Glenn Maxwell.

However Wade was certain that he'd edged the ball onto his pad and immediately called for a DRS review.

Ultra-edge showed a tiny spike when the ball passed Wade's bat, and the ball could also be seen deviating markedly before hitting his pad.

Nevertheless, the third umpire didn't see any of that and upheld the on-field decision of out.

‘Wow, wow, wow, wow!” Danny Morrison said in commentary.

“It appeared the ball changed direction there, so I’m not sure what’s happened.

"The unfortunate nature of it is that he has to disappear. He’ll be frustrated and rightly so I feel.”

Wade screamed out in anger as he left the field before TV cameras captured him throwing his helmet and bat in the dressing rooms.

“He’s furious Matthew Wade, and you can see why," Morrison added.

It continued a lean run with the bat for the Aussie World Cup hero, who has just 114 runs at 14.25 with a top score of 30 this season.

Glenn Maxwell and Virat Kohli star for Bangalore

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli finally rediscovered his scoring touch, smashing 73 off 54 balls to lead Royal Challengers Bangalore to an eight-wicket win.

Maxwell also thrashed an unbeaten 43 off just 18 balls as Bangalore cruised to the target of 169 with eight balls to spare.

The victory over the table-topping Titans keeps Bangalore's playoff hopes alive.

Set a target of 169 to win their final league game, Kohli opened the innings and hit eight fours and two sixes to give Bangalore a platform to chase down the total and move up to fourth place.

The former India captain has had a nightmare season by his standards, including three ducks in the tournament.

Thursday's knock was only his second fifty in 14 IPL innings, although he has passed 7000 runs for the team.

"I was disappointed that I haven't done much for my team and that is what bothers me," Kohli said.

"Today was a game where I was able to create an impact for the team.

"I have worked really hard. Before this game, I batted non-stop in the nets for 90 minutes. I came in very free and relaxed."

Maxwell said the team will be watching the Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals game "pretty closely" on Sunday.

Delhi, who have a better net run rate, could move level on points and reclaim fourth spot if they beat the bottom side.

"We feel like we deserve to be in the final four and hopefully Mumbai will do the right thing by us and get us into the final four," Maxwell said.

Gujarat, already assured of first place with 20 points, had earlier made 5-168 after captain Hardik Pandya won the toss and scored 68 not out off 47 balls.

Maxwell could have been out first ball, but Rashid Khan's sharp delivery failed to dislodge the bails and went for four byes after hitting the leg stump.

The Australian then blazed five fours and two sixes and carried Bangalore home.
