Mayank Agarwal played captaincy innings
Mayank scored an unbeaten 99 off 58 balls with 8 fours and 4 fours. For Delhi, fast bowler Kagiso Rabada took the maximum 3 wickets. There was a time in this match when the fans could not stop laughing.
How is this run out?
In fact, this was the 14th over of the Punjab Kings innings. On the front of the batting were Mayank Agarwal and Deepak Hooda. Axar Patel was handling the responsibility of bowling. Akshar’s third ball was hit by Mayank Agarwal towards extra cover and ran for a run. Deepak Hooda from the non-strike end also exited the crease.
But after running three or four steps, Deepak felt that he would not be able to complete the run. In such a situation, he started returning to his crease, but Mayank did not stop. So both the batsmen reached the same end. After this it seemed that there was a race to reach the crease between the two. Hooda could not reach the crease even after applying full strength.
Fielder Shimron Hetmyer swiftly caught the ball and threw it towards the non-striker end. Akshar scattered the gills without losing time. Both batsmen came at one end, then Akshar threw the ball towards wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant and Pant also blew the balls.
The field umpire referred the third umpire for the result. The TV umpire found that Deepak did not cross half the pitch and Akshar Patel dismissed him. Deepak returned to the pavilion on a personal score of just one run.
