It is the Kolkata Knight Riders who will fight against Chennai Super Kings in the final of the Indian Premier League 2021. The Knight Riders scripted a last-over victory over the Delhi Capitals by three wickets in the second semi-final. KKR made a thriller out of a well-paced chase but eventually managed to get over the line with a ball to spare.
In the end, the equation boiled down to KKR needing seven runs off six deliveries. Ravichandran Ashwin had the ball in his hand with Rahul Tripathi and Shakib Al Hasan in the middle. Ashwin showed exceptional skills in the final over as he took two back-to-back wickets in the form of Sunil Narine and Shakib.
“Rule to Tripathi hi karenge” – Twiterratis come up with hilarious memes over Rahul Tripathi’s heroics
However, it was KKR who had the last laugh as Rahul Tripathi managed to hit a maximum over long-off to help Kolkata win by three wickets. Following his heroics, Amazon Prime came up with a hilarious tweet as they used a Mirzapur reference to hail Tripathi for keeping his cool.
Netizens upped their game as they came up with hilarious reactions to the tweet. And Tripathi deserves all the appreciation for he has been the pillar of the batting line up which lacks stability in the middle order. The young batsman stepped up when his team needed him the most and is a big reason why KKR is in the final of IPL 2021.
