“Why is he bowling full?”- Muttiah Muralitharan fumes as Rashid Khan hits Marco Jansen for three sixes
With the power hitting from Rashid Khan and Rahul Tewatia, Gujarat Titans defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by 5 wickets on Wednesday, April 27 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Chasing the target of 195, Gujarat Titans batting line up showed their brilliant skills and looked effortless in chasing the score in a thriller. But SRH bowling coach Muttiah Muralitharan wasn’t happy with Marco Jansen in the penultimate over of the game. Marco Jansen had the responsibility to defend the 22 runs in the last over. Many a times, bowlers have easily done that but on the crease were Rahul Tewatia and Rashid Khan who looked extremely fearless.
The pressure of the final over in front of dangerous batsmen was too much for Jansen and he kept delivering full length balls which angered the Sri Lankan legend. He totally lost his control when Jansen tried to go wide of Rashid but the latter got under the ball to convert it into a full toss and smashed a huge six.
Muttiah Muralitharan with livid expression stood up from the dugout to say.” Why the hell is he bowling full?” This video is storming the internet as not everyone has seen the legendary cricketer shout.
