IPL 2019: Sidharth Kaul had a day to forget at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium against the Royals. Defending 161, Kaul allowed the Royals openers off to a belligerent start, conceding 20 runs off his first over. He then conceded 10 and 14 from his next two overs. What made matters worse was that he did not even pick a wicket. While some fans asked why was Vijay Shankar not given the ball, others felt that Sanju Samson was a better option than Kaul. In the seven matches Kaul has played thus far, he has picked up six wickets at an economy of 9:15.
