Former Indian legendary cricketer and veteran cricket commentator, Sunil Gavaskar, hilariously trolled Delhi Capitals (DC) while commentating during match 11 of IPL 2021 against Punjab Kings (PBKS). Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings locked horns in the 11th match of IPL 2021 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
DC won the toss and elected to field first. The Punjab openers, KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal began the innings with a bang as both the batsmen scored scintillating half-centuries. They stitched together a 122-run partnership for the first wicket as their batting ensured that Punjab finishes on a high score of 195 runs for the loss of 4 wickets in their 20 overs.
Watch: Sunil Gavaskar Hilariously Trolls Delhi Capitals’ Dugout
As Delhi Capitals took to the crease, both the openers, Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw gave a scintillating start to the Men in Blue and stitched a partnership of 59 runs for the first wicket. Prithvi Shaw departed soon but Shikhar Dhawan carried on his onslaught as he smashed yet another half-century and did his bit in the DC chase.
A hilarious incident took place after the 13th over when the second strategic timeout was taken as a lot of people from the DC dugout swarmed to the ground. Sunil Gavaskar saw the witty side of this and as the timeout came to a close, Sunil Gavaskar said, “Shaayad ye baat kar rahe honge kya mai aur 10-12 logon ko le aau kya!! Are kya yaar, strategic timeout ke liye itne log!!”
“Kaptaan, coach, aur assistant coach, batting coach aa sakte hai!! Vaha pe poori duniya thi!! 10-12 logo ko aur le aana tha!! Shaayad baithe baithe thak gaye honge excersise ke liye baahar nikle honge!!” Sunil Gavaskar stated.
This in English read, “They might be probably thinking of bringing in 10-12 more people. Who brings so many people just for strategic timeout? The captain, the coach, the assistant coach, and the batting coach can be there but the entire world was there on the field!!”
“They should’ve brought 10-12 more people. They might have been tired sitting on the bench and hence, they might have decided to exercise a bit!!” Sunil Gavaskar stated.
