IPL 2019: It was a gesture that once again highlights that cricket is a gentleman’s game. Suresh Raina was spotted tying Rishabh Pant’s shoelaces during Qualifier 2 at Vizag. Pant had just walked into the middle and was looking to get set. Pant is young whereas Raina is a veteran, hence to see the veteran help a youngster was heartwarming. The incident took place during the first innings. Pant walked into bat when the Capitals were reeling at 75/4 in the 12th over when the youngster came in looking to resurrect the innings. Wickets fell at the other end, but Pant kept his cool and his head. Here is the moment.
Chennai Super Kings skipper M.S. Dhoni won the toss and elected to field first against Delhi Capitals in Qualifiers 2 here on Friday.
While Delhi remained unchanged from their last game, Chennai made one change with Shardul Thakur coming in for Murali Vijay.
At the time of filing the copy, the Capitals were 118/7 in the 18th over. Pant is on 31* and he has Keemo Paul for company. Bravo and Harbhajan picked up two wickets apiece and were the pick of the bowlers.
