Star Rajasthan Royals (RR) pacer Prasidh Krishna castled Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) bowling all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga in Qualifier 2 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on Friday, May 27.
Prasidh Krishna had a very poor outing in Qualifier 1 of the Indian Premier League 2022 as he got smashed for 3 consecutive sixes in the last over of the match by Gujarat Titans batter David Miller.
However, Krishna made a strong comeback in the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore and he picked a huge wicket of Virat Kohli in his first over.
Then, Krishna dismissed wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik and all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga in the 19th over of the match.
On the first ball of the over Krishna dismissed Karthik and on the second delivery he bowled a fierce 147.5kph toe-crushing yorker to Hasaranga and the RCB all-rounder had no answer for that delivery. Hasaranga was very late in bringing his bat down and the middle and leg stumps were uprooted.
