Brian Lara points out technical flaws in Virat Kohli’s dismissal against KKR

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) didn’t have an ideal start in the second leg of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as they lost their reverse fixture against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by nine wickets.

KKR’s mystery bowler Varun Chakravarthy and all-rounder Andre Russell picked up three wickets each as the two-time champions bundled out the Challengers for a mere 92.

RCB skipper Virat Kohli had a poor outing as he could only manage to score five runs. Kohli opened the innings and got out LBW off seam bowler Prasidh Krishna.

Discussing about Kohli’s dismissal, West Indies legend Brian Lara pointed out the technical flaws in the way RCB captain lost his wicket. Lara recalled Kohli’s dismissal from the 2019 World Cup semi-final clash against New Zealand, stating the Delhi-lad had a similar head position against KKR.

“In the World Cup 2019 semi-final against New Zealand, LBW again – you look his head position. The ball before (vs KKR) he struck it through extra-cover – maybe the best shot of the match. Head was on top of the ball. The next delivery, his head was almost in the same position as the previous ball, but the line was completely different – it was coming down from middle and off, angling into middle and leg,” Lara told Cricket.com.

Lara mentioned that many right-handed batters face this problem and lose their balance while getting on the front foot. The former West Indies captain reckoned the batsmen need to wait a little longer before executing the shot.

“That is an issue we know that a lot of right-handed batsmen get on the front foot and fall over. Just need to wait a little bit longer maybe, keep a stiller head and have that balance so that you can go down the track, instead of going towards the off stump when the ball is angled towards leg,” added Lara.

Twitter reactions: Kartik Tyagi seals a win for RR from jaws of defeat – IPL 2021

In an absolute nail-biting contest, Rajasthan Royals (RR) defeated Punjab Kings (PBKS) by two runs at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Tuesday.

Chasing 186, Punjab got off to a flying start as the duo of KL Rahul, and Mayank Agarwal completely dominated the first half. Rahul and Mayank didn’t allow RR bowlers to pick early wickets by smashing quick runs at a tremendous run rate.

Mayank scored a terrific half-century as the pair formed a devastating 120 runs partnership for the opening wicket. As things were going out of Sanju Samson’s hand, RR bowlers bounced back by dismissing both the openers in quick succession.

Left-arm pacer Chetan Sakariya drew the first blood by removing Kings skipper Rahul for one short of his fifty in the 12th over. Soon, Rahul Tewatia sent back Mayank in the very next over to reduce Punjab to 126/2.

Then, debutant Aiden Markram and explosive batter Nicholas Pooran stitched a crucial 57-run stand for the third wicket and almost pulled off the victory with four runs needed in the final over. However, Kartik Tyagi, who came to bowl the last over, turned things around by defending four runs and picking two wickets to guide Rajasthan to a thrilling win.

Earlier, Yashashvi Jaiswal and Mahipal Lomror helped RR score quick runs before Arshdeep Singh brought Punjab back into the game to restrict Rajasthan for 185.

Yashasvi scored 49 off 36 balls with the help of eight boundaries, including a couple of sixes. Similarly, Lomror also thrashed bowlers with a quickfire 17-ball 43 at a breathtaking strike rate of close to 253. Evin Lewis and Liam Livingstone chipped in with valuable contributions of 36 and 25 to help Rajasthan reach a massive total.

Arshdeep performed outstandingly well to pick up a sensational five-wicket haul for 32 runs in his quota of 4 overs. The left-arm pacer bagged the prized scalps of Lewis, Livingstone and Lomror, along with cleaning up the tails in the form of Sakariya and Tyagi.

Apart from Arshdeep, senior pacer Mohammed Shami picked up three wickets in 4 overs while conceding only 21 runs. Debutant Adil Rashid, however, didn’t have a good outing with the ball. The England spinner ended up giving away 35 runs off his three overs.
