IPL 2019: Colin Ingram and Axar Patel completed one of the most stunning relays catches you will ever see in cricket. It was also a crucial catch because that dismissed Chris Gayle, who was looking ominous. But leave all that aside, KKR’s Carlos Brathwaite has an intriguing question. He wants to find out who gets the best catch of the match, will it be Ingram who did all the hard work to hold onto the ball and pass it to Axar Patel or will it be Axar who took a dolly and completed the catch. In all probability, by the rulebook, it will be Axar who will get it if that certain catch is selected.
Brathwaite’s post read, “Who gets the Vivo_India phone for catch of the match Ingram or Axar?”
Here is the talked about the catch.
Meanwhile, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) rode on Chris Gayle’s 28th Indian Premier League (IPL) fifty to register 163/7 in 20 overs against Delhi Capitals (DC) at the Feroz Shah Kotla here on Saturday.
Even as the DC bowlers looked to keep things tight after Gayle’s dismissal, the visitors still managed to pick up 45 runs in the last five overs as Harpreet Brar finished with an unbeaten 20 off 12 balls.
For DC, Axar Patel and Sandeep Lamichhane were the stars of the show. While Axar finished with 2/22 from his three overs, Lamichhane picked up three wickets even though he was slightly on the expensive side, giving away 40 runs from his four overs.
Put into bat, KXIP looked to start positively. But Lamichhane struck in the second over itself as he had K.L. Rahul stumped by Rishabh Pant for just 12. The score read 13/1 as Mayank Agarwal joined Gayle in the middle.
