Arshdeep Singh fires Dinesh Karthik with a Yorker, puts three wickets on the night


Punjab Kings (PBKS) pitcher Arshdeep Singh continued his excellent form by winning three wickets against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Friday. He finished the innings with a wicket on the last ball, dismissing Dinesh Karthik.

KL Rahul was not sure about the track and how she would play in Dubai. He asked the KKR drummers to try first. Shubman Gill was knocked down early enough, but Venkatesh Iyer continued his excellent run in the 2021 IPL season. He scored another wonderful fifty, his second of the tournament.

Its wicket slowed the pace for the KKR, which went from 120/2 in the 15th to 165/7 in the 20th. The last wicket to drop was Karthik, who has played tough rounds so far. He was put out of his misery by Arshdeep, who finished with numbers 3/32 on the night.

As was the case with PBKS, Arshdeep was given the responsibility of bowling on the 20th. He showcased his repertoire of yorkers and slower balls, conceding just seven runs on the first five balls. Knowing that traditional punches didn’t work, Karthik tried the cheeky scoop.

Unfortunately, he moved a bit too much and Arshdeep nailed the yorker to the stump of the leg. Karthik connected with the air and the ball crashed into the stumps, ending a big comeback from PBKS after he looked dangerous at one point.

Previously, Iyer had first received great support from Rahul Tripathi and then from Nitish Rana. The latter hit two huge sixes, which provided the boost KKR needed in the midstage. A late retaliation from PBKS limited them to 165/7 in 20 overs.
