Watch: Marcus Stoinis erupts after Amit Mishra makes a lazy fielding effort to save a boundary
The IPL 2020 runners-up Delhi Capitals locked horns with the three-time IPL champions, Chennai Super Kings today at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Delhi Capitals won the toss and invited the yellow army to bat first. CSK got off to a sloppy start to the game as they lost openers in quick intervals.
Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad hardly turned up the ante in the starting overs. Former South Africa captain Faf du Plessis was dismissed leg before wicket off Avesh Khan's bowling whereas Gaikwad fell prey to Chris Woakes bowling.
The batsman got an inside edge as the ball travelled to slip where Dhawan took a catch. After losing two wickets, CSK new recruit Moeen Ali and the club's top run-scorer Suresh Raina took the game away from the visitors. The duo stitched together a 53-run stand for the third wicket.
Meanwhile, England all-rounder got out after scoring 36 off 24 deliveries including 4 fours and 2 sixes. Ambati Rayudu came out to bat and went about his business right from the word go. Rayudu and Raina took the attack to the cleaners and added a 63-run stand for the fourth wicket.
Amit Mishra makes a sloppy effort to save a boundary
Rishabh Pant brought Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis into the bowling attack. The all-rounder bowled an uppish full toss to Ambati Rayudu and to which, the batsman smashed the ball for a six towards the leg side. Since the ball was above Rayudu's waist, the umpire declared it a no-ball.
Rayudu was eagerly looking forward to taking advantage of the free-hit ball. The batsman decided to play the big shot but failed to connect the ball properly as it went on to hit his ribs and the ball beat the wicketkeeper and travelled towards the boundary in the follow-through.
Meanwhile, Amit Mishra made a half-hearted attempt as he failed to save the boundary. If it was another fielder he would have at least tried to save a certain boundary but Amit Mishra gave up already as he didn't even make an effort to stop the ball. Marcus Stoinis was not at all happy with the lazy effort as he gave an angry reaction to Mishra's fielding.
