Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) opener Aaron Finch was brought back into the playing XI against Delhi Capitals (DC) but his stay at the crease was cut short by Chetan Sakariya.
DC won the toss and expectedly opted to bowl first. Venkatesh Iyer returned to the top of the order after being tried as a finisher in the previous game where it didn’t work out.
After a great first over from Mustafizur Rahman, Finch decided to attack Sakariya but he paid for it with its wicket. Known to be weak against swing, Finch tried to clear his leg and make room.
However, his wild slog made no connection with the ball and it crashed into the middle and leg stump. It was the perfect start that DC was hoping for after winning the toss.
