Kolkata Knight Riders had a wonderful day yesterday when they beat Rajasthan Royals by seven wickets. KKR team captain Dinesh Karthik set an example when thanks to his quick reaction, he stumped RR’s Ajinkya Rahane.
Fans tagged his swift action as something that only Mahendra Singh Dhoni could do. The Tamil Nadu-based cricketer pulled off a wonderful stumping while making the best use of the lost communication between RR’s Ajinkya Rahane and D’Arcy Short. The incident happened during the 7th innings when Rahane was facing Nitish Rana.
As Rahane ran forward to increase his run-rate, the ball hit his pads and went sideways. Karthik, who kept a keen eye, like that of an eagle, quickly grabbed the ball and hit the stumps in a near-miss moment. Rahane was left spellbound by seeing the wicket keeper’s swiftness as he headed back to the pavilion.
