There was a constant shift of momentum as Kolkata Knight Riders locked horns with Sunrisers Hyderabad in a crucial game at the Dubai International Stadium. Coming into the match, Hyderabad had nothing to lose as they are already eliminated while the Knight Riders’ chances of making it to the top four in IPL 2021 were hanging by a thread.
Though the Eoin Morgan-led side faced some roadblocks, they ended up on the right side against SRH to collect two crucial points. One of the highlights of the game was the middle-order batter, Nitish Rana, cracking the camera lens. On the fourth delivery of the 17th over, Jason Holder bowled a length ball.
Rana was all set to hit big as he pulled the length ball in front of the square. The ball landed just inside the field and went over the ropes after one bounce. In the process, it also hit the moving camera on the boundary line. The entire incident left the fielder Rashid Khan amazed as he gave a priceless reaction.
Nitish Rana departs at 25
The spectacular hit gave Nitish Rana some confidence and the fans were hopeful of him taking KKR home. However, the batter couldn’t prolong his stay on the match field as on the last delivery of the same over, he lost his wicket. Rana was dismissed when he was playing at 25 runs off 33 deliveries.
On the sixth delivery, Nitish tried to pull a short ball by Holder. However, it caught the top-edge and Wriddhiman Saha took a clean catch to send Rana back to the pavilion. In the end, it was Dinesh Karthik who played a quick cameo of 18 runs off 12 balls to take the Knight Riders home.
