IPL 2019: It was hilarious to see Kagiso Rabada lift Shikhar Dhawan after the Delhi Capitals opener took a catch to send Shivam Dube packing. It was an important wicket as the game was in the balance and it was the wicket that tilted things in favour of the home side. Dube was dismissed for 24 off 16 balls. The wicket came at a time when the batsman looked well-set. After taking the catch, Dhawan first did his signature ‘thigh-five’ before Rabada lifted him. The incident took place in the 13th over of the match.
Here is the hilarious video of Dhawan being lifted like a kid:
It is a must-win game for RCB to stay afloat in the league. Rabada had earlier picked up the wicket of Parthiv Patel (39), who was looking dangerous from a DC point of view.
Earlier in the day, Delhi Capitals rode on half-centuries by opener Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Shreyas Iyer to post a challenging 187/5 in their 20 overs against Royal Challengers Bangalore in their Indian Premier League (IPL) clash at the Feroz Shah Kotla.
The hosts finished on a high, amassing 60 runs in the last five overs.
At the time of filing the copy, RCB was 154/5 in 17 overs. Bangalore need 35 runs in 17 balls.
