IPL 2019 Finals: Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar were expected to get Chennai Super Kings to a good start after Mumbai Indians won the toss and opted to bat first. In Thakur’s first over he was hit for a six and just when de Kock was looking to cut loose, Thakur got the wicket of de Kock with a surprise bouncer. It was a short ball, and that did the trick! Right at the body, really brave bowling, de Kock was hurried on the pull and top-edges it – hardly any bat on that and Dhoni comes around, moves to his right, to take the dolly of the century.
Here is how Thakur got roasted:
