The junior wicketkeeper almost hit the senior wicketkeeper with the bat while trying to save his own wickets during the match between Kolkata and Delhi. We are obviously talking about Rishabh Pant, the captain of Delhi Capitals was almost singlehandedly trying to save the DC innings against KKR.
In the first ball of 17th over, delivered by Varun Chakrabarthy, Rishabh Pant was seen hitting the ball first and then trying to save the from falling back on the stumps. In the process, he was seen hitting Dinesh Karthik, former KKR captain. They shared a smile after and fans got a light moment to laugh at, but that certainly gave an understanding of the pressure DC skipper was in!
Eventually Delhi Capitals were restricted to 127 by Kolkata Knight Riders in 20 overs. For KKR, this is almost a must – win contest but at present things are not looking great at Sharjah for Eoin Morgan – led team.
