Chennai: When MS Dhoni is batting and the last over of the innings is going on, it always seems that sixes are bound to hit. But if a bowler scatters Dhoni’s stumps in this last over, then everyone would expect that bowler to be extremely happy. Kolkata Knight Riders fast bowler Vaibhav Arora also did something similar. The only difference is that he was not happy.
Now why this happened, we will tell you further. First let us tell what happened in this match. There was a match between Chennai and Kolkata at Chepauk Stadium on Sunday evening. Chennai batted first and the entire team could score only 144 runs. This score of the team could have been a bit more, if Dhoni of this season’s trend had hit some sixes in the last over.
Vaibhav Arora scattered stumps
Dhoni came to the crease after Ravindra Jadeja was dismissed in the last over. He got a chance to face only 2 balls and the inexperienced pacer Vaibhav Arora was in front. Arora’s first ball to Dhoni was wide. In such a situation, he returned to bowling again and bowled a wide yorker, on which Dhoni could not touch the ball but it proved to be a no-ball.
In the third attempt, Vaibhav Arora was successful in bowling the perfect ball and this ball was also very special. This full toss, which came at a very high speed, swung for the inside at the last moment and in an attempt to play a big shot, Dhoni’s stumps were shattered.
Why is Vaibhav not happy?
Although this sight would make any bowler happy and the fielding team would also be filled with enthusiasm, but this did not happen with Vaibhav Arora and KKR. Reason- It was a free hit because the previous ball was a no ball. Despite this, it was a matter of comfort for Arora that he did not allow Dhoni to score any runs. Then Dhoni could take only 2 runs on the last ball. In this way, even without taking Dhoni’s wicket, Vaibhav must have got some relief.
