Delhi vs KKR: In the IPL 2021, the Qualifier-2 match played between Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday saw a wonderful sight. Two different batsmen were ‘catched out’ in two balls but both were not actually out. This thing sounds a bit disturbing but everything is possible in IPL.
A wonderful thing happened in the second qualifier of IPL 2021. Two Delhi batsmen got out in two balls, but the first ball turned out to be a no ball and the second was a free hit. Know how amazing this happened..
What happened in Varun Chakraborty’s over?
Actually, Varun Chakraborty was bowling in the 17th over when Delhi Capitals was batting against Kolkata. When he bowled the fourth ball of the over, Delhi’s Hetmyer played a big shot and Shubman Gill took a very brilliant catch on the boundary. Hetmyer had also gone towards the pavilion, but the umpire stopped and later it was found that it was a no ball. In such a situation, Hetmyer, who was out, got life support.
But after this it happened once again, when Hetmyer came back, he had changed the crease with Shreyas Iyer. In this case, the next ball after the no ball was a free-hit. Shreyas Iyer wanted to play a big shot on this ball, but Eoin Morgan caught him near the point. Now because it was a free hit, it also remained not out. Because only runout is valid on free hit.
In such a situation, Kolkata got two wickets in two balls, but not a single batsman got out. Shimron Hetmyer hit sixes after getting the lifeline. In this match played in Sharjah, the pitch was very slow, in such a situation it was difficult to hit big shots. This was the reason why Delhi Capitals’ batting failed completely.
