Dinesh Karthik was miffed with himself as he missed two chances of scoring boundaries in the last over against Avesh Khan as Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) clashed with Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in the Eden Gardens in the Eliminator match of the IPL 2022 in Kolkata on May 25, 2022.
Karthik, along with Rajat Patidar added 92* runs for the fifth wicket in 41 balls for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) as they put up a massive 207/4 in 20 overs against a hapless Lucknow Super Giants bowling attack.
In fact, Karthik was so much into his zone that when he missed two back-to-back chances of scoring boundaries in the 20th over bowled by Avesh Khan, he couldn’t help but let out his frustration which was caught on the stump mic.
The incident happened when Karthik missed a chance to uppercut a slow wide bouncer from Avesh on the 3rd ball of the last over, which De Kock collect. The next ball was a wide full delivery, for which Karthik had shuffled towards offside early and then tried to ramp it over the third man and missed it. He was filthy with himself and burst into anger.
Rajat Patidar’s 112* Highlights Amazing Batting Performance From RCB
RCB’s start in this match was not a good one. Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) captain KL Rahul started off on a good foot, winning the toss and choosing to bowl first. And they lost captain Faf du Plessis for a golden duck as well.
Then Virat Kohli looked good for his 25 runs, adding 66 runs for the second wicket with Rajat Patidar. But Glenn Maxwell (9) and Mahipal Lomror (14) didn’t stay for long. But at the other end, Patidar was smashing LSG bowlers to all parts of the Eden Gardens.
In the end, Karthik and Patidar helped RCB to 207/4 in which Patidar remained unbeaten on 112 in 54 balls with 7 sixes and 12 fours, his maiden ton in T20 cricket and in the Indian Premier League.
