South Africa and Delhi Capitals pacer, Kagiso Rabada, once again proved just why he is one of the great fast bowlers of the modern era as he knocked over ‘Universe Boss’ Chris Gayle after having been smoked over a mighty six.
It all happened in the final over of the powerplay when Chris Gayle, in an attempt to make the most of the fielding restrictions, smoked a sharp, pacy bumper by Kagiso Rabada for a disdainful six over deep-backward square-leg.
Rabada, however, came back brilliant as he knocked over Chris Gayle on the very next delivery.
Kagiso Rabada was probably aiming for a pacy yorker but he missed it by a mile as he dished out a sharp swinging full-toss.
Expecting another sharp bumper from Kagiso Rabada, Chris Gayle got himself into a position for another pull-shot but to his absolute dismay, the ball swung from leg-stump at the very last moment and proceeded to make a mess of his middle and off-stump.
Gayle’s dismissal is the second wicket for Kagiso Rabada in as many overs. In his first over, he has dismissed Prabhsimran Singh, who in an attempt to carve the South African bolter past extra-cover, ended up getting caught thanks to Steve Smith, who took yet another freakish catch.
