Chris Morris lambasts Chetan Sakariya for his fielding effort
South African all-rounder Chris Morris was an angry man after his teammate Chetan Sakariya's lazy fielding effort during the game. The incident happened during the penultimate over of CSK's batting when MS Dhoni's side were searching for quick runs in the end.
Dwayne Bravo looked rock-solid from the word go as he took the bowling attack to the cleaners. During the 19th over of the game, Chris Morris was brought into the attack to keep the batsmen silent. Morris bowled a brilliant delivery outside the off-stump and to which Bravo hit the ball towards Chetan Sakariya who was stationed at the point.
As it happened, Sakariya had to put in a full-stretched dive to stop but the ball but by doing so, he failed to get his hand on the ball. Meanwhile, Morris was absolutely furious with Sakariya's fielding effort as the ball raced towards a boundary.
