Mumbai Indians all-rounder Krunal Pandya might be delivering a mediocre performance with the ball; however, he remains a handy batsman. Krunal Pandya gave the Mumbai Indians the required impetus after being promoted to number four in a run-chase of 172 against the Rajasthan Royals in Delhi. The southpaw’s explosive knock of 39 also contained a six that hit the cameraman.
The six came off the first ball from Rahul Tewatia, who bowled the 14th over in the Mumbai Indians’ innings. Krunal Pandya latched on to the googly at off-stump, hitting it straight down the ground. As soon as the spin-bowling all-rounder struck it, it was apparent that it was going for a six. However, the 84-meter maximum landed on the panel of cameramen.
Left-arm seamer Mustafizur Rahman eventually claimed Pandya’s wicket as the batsman inside-edged it to the stumps in the 17th over. He went for a 26-ball 39, hammering two fours and as many sixes and added 63 off 46 deliveries with Quinton De Kock. De Kock remained unbeaten at 70 off 50 as he took the defending champions to their third victory of IPL 2021 with seven wickets to spare along with Kieron Pollard.
