The 61st match of IPL between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the MCA stadium in Pune witnessed some theatrical moments around the ground. Kolkata Knight Riders eventually won the game by 54 runs but in the second inning KKR’s skipper, Shreyas Iyer invented a dance step to take the DRS call. that was some fun moment on the ground.
this incident happened in the 16th over of the match when SRH was at 100/5 and on the first ball of the over SRH batter Shashank Singh got down on his knees to play the paddle-sweep and is struck on the front pad. the field umpire’s decision was not out and KKR’s skipper, Shreyas Iyer decided to send is upstairs and in order to do so, he dabbed like Jesse Lingaard to take his DRS call.
And the DRS replies confirmed that there was no bat or gloves involved and the ball was hitting the wickets at the umpire’s call. So, the onfield umpire’s call stood. the impact was in front of off and ball-tracking showed it to be clipping the top of middle and leg stumps
The incident’s video is here-
