IPL 2019: Kagiso Rabada, unfortunately, got the ball to slip out of his hands as there is dew and Andre Russell was hurt and down in the ground in agony and pain. It happened in the death overs of the match when Russell looked to get a hang of Rabada. Rabada when he found that Russell was in pain he walked up to him to enquire the magnitude of the pain by giving his hand to help him get up on his feet. Russell acknowledged the gesture and the game carried on. Amidst all the controversies that have grabbed headlines this is a gesture that would bring to the fore the Spirit of Cricket.
Here is the video:
Earlier in the day KKR lost the toss and were put into bat. Without Lynn and Narine at the top, Joe Denly playing his first match of the season was out for a golden duck. Gill registered his highest IPL score as he hit a brilliant 65 and top-scored for KKR as the home side set 179 for Delhi to win.
Morris, Rabada and Keemo Paul picked up two wickets apiece.
At the time of filing the copy, Delhi had lost Shaw for 14 off seven balls and were 45/1 in four overs. It is a great wicket to bat on and hence it seems KKR were 20 runs short.
Delhi Capitals: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer (Captain), Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Colin Ingram, Chris Morris, Axar Patel, Keemo Paul, Rahul Tewatia, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma
Kolkata Knight Riders: Joe Denly, Robbie Uthappa, Carlos Brathwaite, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik (Captain/wicket-keeper), Andre Ruseel, Kuldeep Yadav, Piyush Chawla, Lockie Ferguson, Prasidh Krishna
