When Khaleel Ahmed missed a routine caught and bowled chance, Twitter erupts in outrage.
When a bowler misses an incredibly straightforward catch off his own bowling, it is an uncommon occurrence, but Khaleel Ahmed has added to the list of such occurrences. The bowler gets equally pissed because he misses the chance of a wicket, something similar happened between DC and RR’s match which witnessed some brilliant batting by both sides courtesy of Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, and DDP, Rishabh Pant, Lalit Yadav, Powell. However, Khaleel lost a routine high catch of Sanju Samson, who was bowling dangerously and slamming the ball all over the park, on his own bowling attack.
Rajasthan Royals have won four games in the Indian Premier League 2022 thus far, and they are off to a great start against the Delhi Capitals. As a result of winning the toss, RR was given the opportunity to bat first. The rest of the innings was dominated by Jos Buttler, who hit an unbeaten century. Devdutt Padikkal, who scored a half-century, was also a valuable contributor. Sanju Samson, who came in to bat at No. 3 and smashed the ball all over the field, was looking dangerous after coming into the game. Khaleel Ahmed, on the other hand, supplied him with a lifeline.
Khaleel was delivering the 18th over of the innings to Sanju Samson, who was batting at the time. His last delivery was short and wide outside off to Samson, who took it for a four-wicket haul. Samson made a clumsy attempt to time his shot, and it flew straight up in the air. It was a sitter for Khaleel, but he blew the chance of being caught and bowled by putting the catch down before the ball was delivered.
In the end, it was RR who eventually won.
Here is how Twitter reacted:
Pays 5.5 Crs for a bowler to spoil another team's balance
Removes a statpadder who's blocking the run flow one end
Brings dangerous Samson onto the field , concedes 21 runs in an over, Drops a catch 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 #IPL2022 #KhaleelAhmed pic.twitter.com/qx4jE7DMeg
