In the tenth match of the IPL 2019 played between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in Delhi on Saturday, KKR middle-order batsman Shubman Gill was dismissed in a bizarre fashion.
The incident occurred on the first ball of the 10th over when Gill played a Sandeep Lamichhane delivery towards the sweeper cover area. It once looked that the ball will reach the boundary but it didn’t. And the excellent bonding between Kagiso Rabada and Harshal Patel near the boundary rope earned Delhi a wicket.
In a bid to complete the third run, Gill was found short of the crease at the non-striker’s end. The replays gave signs of the batsman being guilty of assuming that the ball had gone for a boundary. As a result, when KKR captain Dinesh Karthik called for the third run, Gill couldn’t reach the non-striker’s end on time.
Lamichhane, the Nepali wrist spinner, was all over the moon after removing the bails and running out Shubman Gill.
