Fielding has not been that impressive for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) this IPL season. There have been several instances of dropped catches and misfields.
During a game CSK and Kings XI Punjab on Sunday, on the fifth ball of the 9th over, Manoj Tiwary pushed the delivery from Shardul Thakur towards mid off. Ravindra Jadeja came running in from the deep mid-off position and tried hitting the stumps at the non-striker’s end. The bullet throw missed hitting the stumps and went through.
Dwayne Bravo was backing up and he threw the ball towards MS Dhoni at the striker’s end. The throw from Bravo was wide and it went past Dhoni’s gloves and past Ambati Rayudu as well.
Finally, Sam Billings caught hold of the ball and threw it towards the non-striker’s end but not before Manoj Tiwary and David Miller completed three runs. This comedy of errors left the CSK skipper fuming in anger. However, he decided not to react too much to it.
Here’s the video of the incident:
