Prasidh Krishna finished the match with figures of 2/16, and former India head coach Ravi Shastri praised the tall fast bowler after the game.
For the RR, Krishna was particularly impressed with the new ball, conceding only 2 runs in his first two overs while dismissing SRH skipper Kane Williamson (2) and Rahul Tripathi (0).
Rajasthan Royals bowlers Prasidh Krishna, Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Ravichandran Ashwin all bowled at an economy rate of less than six, completing their four-over quota.
Sanju Samson’s team put up an all-around performance at the MCA Stadium in Pune, scoring 210/6 while batting first and leaving the SRH reeling at 37/5 at one point until Aiden Markram (57*) and Washington Sundar (40) led the side to a decent score of 149/7.
‘He Made Sure Batsmen Have Their Driving License In Pockets’: Ravi Shastri
“He was tough.” When you’re bowling at lengths, the hard lengths, you expect some weird balls when you beat the bat and get the edges (that may go loose). “But he was rude, he provided nothing.”. On Star Sports’ post-match program, Ravi Shastri observed.
“He double-checked that the batters had their driver’s licenses in their pockets.” ‘I don’t want to see your driver’s licenses, and I’m not going to offer you anything right away,’ he said. I’m going to ping you on the back foot and take you out.’
Shastri remarked that he was particularly impressed by Krishna’s use of the bounce on the surface to dismiss Williamson.
“Take a look at how he got Williamson out.” (Usually, bowlers would go) Get the nick off the top of the off-stump. ‘I’ll take that nick to a foot-and-a-half, top of off-stump,’ he added, knowing there was bounce there. He’s got the height, he’s got the wrist, and he’s got the high seam. “It’s great to see an Indian taking on a world-class player,” the former Team India head coach Ravi Shastri stated.
