Watch: Rajasthan Royals player David Miller exhibits juggling skills in IPL 2021
Rajasthan Royals would be feeling little better after all they had gone through this season. Besides losing three England stalwarts - Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer and Liam Livingstone in their squad, they have also lost 3 games this season. However, nothing terrible has happened as they still have a lot of time to heal their process.
Meanwhile, they took on Kolkata Knight Riders at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The Royals who won just 1 game against Delhi Capitals ensured to provide a good start to the game after winning the toss. Eoin Morgan's side were put in to bat first where they failed to capitalize on the chances to better effect.
Nitish Rana and Shubman Gill didn't steer the team in the right direction as they lost the plot straight away. However, Rahul Tripathi proved his worth by smashing 2 sixes and a four and went on to score 36 off 26. His domination didn't continue any longer as he was dismissed by Mustafizur Rahman.
Kolkata Knight Riders could garner just 133/9 in their full quota of 20 overs. Chris Morris, who is the most expensive player in the Indian Premier League once again stepped up and delivered the goods when it mattered the most. The Proteas pacer was the pick of the bowlers as he accounted for 4 dismissals in his quota of 4 overs.
Proteas player David Miller shows off his juggling skills
South African player David Miller did not play the team's first rubber against Punjab Kings. However, he was named in the playing XI against Delhi Capitals in the second game. The southpaw scored a match-winning 62 off 43 balls including 7 fours and 2 sixes at a strike rate of 144.19.
However, he failed to make his presence count in the next two games against Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore as he departed for 2 and 0. In the recently-concluded game against KKR, he made the headlines for showcasing his juggling skills in the dugout.
Miller perfectly showed off his juggling skills as he didn't let even a single ball fall from his hand. The video clip spread like wildfire on social media platforms. Meanwhile, Miller scored an unbeaten 24 off 23 balls where he struck 3 boundaries and combined the game alongside his captain and steered his team to victory. RR chased down the target with 7 balls to spare and won the match by 6 wickets.
