Emotions! Drama! Thrilling finishes! Our Knights, led by DK finished third in the VIVO IPL 2018, signing off with some great victories studded with quite a few match-defining moments. Some of those flashes are bound to remain etched in the minds of all the fans around the world.
We picked five instances that we thought left a mark.
DK’s stumping to dismiss Ajinkya Rahane
There’s no better feeling than dismissing the opposite skipper. And DK’s acrobatic flip to dismiss Ajinkya Rahane was a treat to watch, reminding everyone of his sharpness behind the stumps.
Rana’s double blow against RCB
To get the wicket of guys like AB De Villiers or Virat Kohli is like a dream to many bowlers. But, to get them in back-to-back deliveries is fantastic & our Knight Rana achieved this in our opening game of IPL 2018.
Shivam Mavi’s debut IPL wicket of Gautam Gambhir
After years of success with KKR, this time Gautam Gambhir was leading the Delhi Daredevils at Eden Gardens. His stay at the crease was short lived, as the Under-19 CWC 2018 star, Shivam Mavi, cleaned him up for his maiden IPL wicket.
The first of many for Shubman Gill
We know how good he was in the U19 Cricket World Cup. Our Knight, Shubman Gill played his best inning of the IPL, scoring a fifty against CSK that took us home in one the best chases we’ve seen in this IPL.
Bowlers' comeback vs RR - Eliminator
It’s all about holding your nerves. After 109/1 in 14 overs, RR were well and truly in the game. But the pressure of playing in the playoffs got better of them as they succumbed to it in the last 6 overs and lost the Eliminator without much fight in the end.
