Currently, the man with a golden arm, Rajasthan Royals (RR) young-gun Kartik Tyagi is on fire as he got the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 Orange Cap holder Shikhar Dhawan out.
In the 36th clash between RR and Delhi Capitals (DC), Sanju Samson had won the toss and opted to field first and surely it proved to be vital. Surely the wicket of Dhawan was unlucky for the batsman as the opener was looking to defend with soft hands.
He even does the same, the ball, unfortunately, rolls back and hits the base of the leg-stump. It was a slow-motion dismissal for the prolific left-hander, but the Royals struck early.
