Twitter reacts as Rahul Chahar gives an unusual send-off to Yashasvi Jaiswal against RR


The five-time champions Mumbai Indians were taking on Rajasthan Royals in the 24th match of the IPL 2021. Rohit Sharma opted to field first after winning the toss.

Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal opened for Rajasthan Royals and gave a good start to the innings. They added 49 runs in the powerplay overs without any loss of wicket.

In the 8th over of the game, Rahul Chahar removed the dangerous Jos Buttler before reaching his fifty. He continued the same in his next over by removing the youngster Yashasvi Jaiswal after conceding a six off the previous delivery.

In addition to that, Rahul Chahar gave a fiery send off to the youngster as he jammed the ball straight to the bowler.

Sanju Samson and Shivam Dube's crucial partnership in the middle:

After that, the skipper of Rajasthan Royals, Sanju Samson played a vital role with Shivam Dube and built a good partnership in the middle. They added 47 runs for the 3rd wicket partnership before Samson was cleaned by the New Zealand-based cricketer Trent Boult.

Shivam Dube followed his skipper in the next over bowled by Jasprit Bumrah as the left-hander tapped the ball back to the bowler which ended in a simple catch.

At the end of the first half, Rajasthan Royals posted a quite challenging total of 171 runs on the board. Once again Jasprit Bumrah showed that why he is called the best bowler by conceding just 15 runs in his spell and picked up a wicket as well. 

Quinton de Kock back to the form:

Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock came to the crease to chase the target posted by the opposition. Chris Morris once again proved his worth by sending the hitman back to the dressing room for 14 runs.

Then, the South African pacer removed Suryakumar Yadav in the 10th over of the game. However, Quinton de Kock stood strong on the other end and smashed the likes of the opposition bowlers all around the park.

Kieron Pollard played a quick cameo and finished the game in favour of the Mumbai Indians. Now, the Mumbai Indians have to face Chennai Super Kings in their upcoming encounter on Saturday.
