During the 6th over of the Punjab Kings innings, Krunal Pandya bowled an yorker to Chris Gayle. It hit KL Rahul who leaped but was still hit by the ball. Later Rahul was accidentally run out by the bowler but Hardik Pandya decided to not appeal for dismissal. He himself spoke to the umpire and got support from his skipper Rohit Sharma for the same. The batter was also seen appreciating the gesture of Krunal.
Not just cricketers, the fans cannot stop showering praise for the senior Pandya. Meanwhile, KL Rahul was gone for 21 off Kieron Pollard. Mandeep Singh who replaced Mayank Agarwal was dismissed by Krunal Pandya for 15. From 48/4, Aiden Markram (42) and Deepak Hooda ( 25*) took the score to 109 to provide some stability. Punjab Kings still look in deep trouble against a side against Mumbai Indians but they still have Hooda in the middle, fortunately.
