Shardul does not have a ball.
Despite a strong start in this match, the Indian team was unable to take advantage of the opportunity. During the South African innings, a funny incident occurred in the ninth over. This was being bowled over by Shardul Thakur. A ball from this over came close to Quinton de Kock’s bat and straight into wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant’s hands.
The players of Team India appealed, but the field umpire did not rule in their favour. After that, a few seconds before captain KL Rahul was about to take the DRS, the third umpire gave it a no ball. As a result, Rahul was unable to take DRS.
After that, there was a free-hit ball. Dekock hit Shardul’s ball with a shot, and the ball went straight into Venkatesh Iyer’s hands. De Kock, on the other hand, was not penalised for a free hit. That’s how Dickock managed to stay alive. Following this, Lord Sharduk became the subject of a slew of social media memes.
Virat Kohli and Temba Bavuma’s brawl
Virat Kohli and Temba Bavuma, the South African captain, had a spat during the match. Hui. In the 35th over of the African innings, Kohli fielded and threw a quick throw to wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant. As a result, Bavuma became enraged and began yelling at Kohli. Kohli was asked where he was going to keep quiet, and he pointed to Bavuma before returning to his field position. After that, Bavuma fell silent as well. This video is currently trending on social media.
