It is not said that cricket is a game of uncertainties… A living example of this was seen in Qualifier-2 between Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders played on Wednesday at Sharjah Cricket Stadium. There was a normal target of 136 runs on the small ground. At one time Kolkata was one-sided heavy, but in the last 4 overs, the game turned such that it was saved from losing in the last over.
KKR needed six runs in the last two balls and Ravichandran Ashwin had the ball in front. Ashwin was on a hat-trick after taking wickets in the third and fourth balls of this over but Tripathi smashed Delhi’s dream of winning the IPL for the first time with the fifth ball crossing the boundary.
Most exciting last four overs in IPL history
KKR captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and decided to field first. Batting first, Delhi scored 135 for 5 in 20 overs. Chasing the target, KKR won the match by scoring 136 for seven in 19.5 overs. Now KKR have to play the final on 15 October against Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings.
