IPL 2019 Eliminator: Amit Mishra is not someone you associate with breaking the rules of the game, but this IPL has seen MS Dhoni lose his cool and Ashwin’s Mankad, hence anything is possible. With the Capitals needing two to win off three balls, Mishra obstructed the field in a controversial manner, he was given out but the gesture did not go down well with the netizens who slammed Mishra for the act. The incident did not have an impact in the final outcome of the game as Delhi beat Hyderabad by two wickets to set up a date with Chennai Super Kings.
Here is how Twitter reacted:
“Delhi played very well, they are a strong outfit and I think they deserved this win, think they will go all the way. We believed it was a winning total and it looked like it for a long time, they started well and had all the momentum, they had some quality players, as expected on this wicket we squeezed them back and got ourselves ahead, we weren’t not very clinical with the catching or in our bowling, we weren’t great today,” said Kane Williamson at the post-match presentation.
