3 Batsmen Who Have Been Dismissed On The Unfortunate Score Of 99 In IPL History:
The latest batting sensation Ishan Kishan who had an amazing debut for India in T20s recently was dismissed on 99 in the previous IPL against RCB in the league stages. It was a match that went into the wire and super over was the only solution to the action-packed match which got tied. RCB batted first and got to 201 for the loss of three wickets which was a huge score.
In reply, Mumbai was struggling at 78 for four wickets but Ishan Kishan and Kieron Pollard turned the match around with a magnificent partnership. Ishan Kishan was unfortunate to be dismissed on 99 in 56 balls in a knock that comprised of 9 sixes and 2 fours. His dismissal led to Mumbai having a hold on the run chase and eventually they lost the game in the super over.
