- In IPL 2021, there was a match between Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings
- Funny incident in the 11th over of Punjab Kings innings
- If the six hit the bouncer, Sunil Gavaskar said – the line was not right
- The replays showed the line was correct, Ben Stocks tweeted
Rajasthan Royals (RR) player Ben Stocks has returned to England after a finger injury. However his attachment to IPL 2021 has not diminished. He keeps a close watch on every match. On Sunday, the stock watching the contest between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) tweeted a tweet about commentator Sunil Gavaskar. Stocks did not directly name Gavaskar, but during his commentary, he made an emoji smacking the forehead on one of his comments.
When the Punjab Kings team was batting, Sunil Gavaskar was present as a commentator in the 11th over. Mayank Agarwal had hit two sixes to DC’s Kagiso Rabara. Rabada then bowled a short ball to PBKS captain KL Rahul. Rahul hooked him and played in the backward square area. Gavaskar, commenting, said, ‘What a bad bouncer! If you have to throw a bouncer then it should be above the off stump. The replays showed that the bouncer’s line was just above the off-stump.
How did fans react to stock tweets?
Stocks also created a head-banging emoji, tweeting the same thing. On this, many Indian users said that they thanked the stock for understanding their ‘pain’. Many criticized Gavaskar’s commentary and called it ‘boring’.
Delhi capitals won by 6 wickets
Sunday was KL Rahul’s birthday but his team lost the match. The Punjab Kings, batting first, scored 195 runs for 4 wickets, which Delhi Capitals achieved by losing 4 wickets with 10 balls left. This is Delhi Capitals’ second win in three matches. She has now reached 4 points and has reached number two in the points table. Punjab Kings suffered a second defeat in three matches.
