IPL 2019: KXIP bowler Ankit Rajpoot winked at Keiron Pollard after bowling during the match at Wankhede between MI and Punjab. It was not the best of outings for Rajpoot who went for 52 runs in his quota of four overs. He only managed to pick a solitary wicket. Pollard was the man for MI as he smashed a breathtaking 83 off 31 balls to help MI beat KXIP by three wickets. But it was not the Pollard show that got the fans talking on social space, but the wink by Rajpoot. Fans are comparing it with the iconic wink of Priya Prakash Varrier that set the whole nation raving.
Here is how social media reacted to the wink by Rajpoot:
“I would like to thank God. Need to thank him for giving strength to me for doing the things that I do. Also love to thank my wife, it’s her birthday today and I want to dedicate this to her. I went up the order because I enjoy batting at Wankhede. Plan was to attack Ashwin as spin wasn’t doing great,” said Pollard at the post-match presentation while receiving the Man of the Match award.
