New Delhi: Rajasthan Royals suffered a major setback in the middle of this season, when their star all-rounder Ben Stokes was injured and was ruled out of IPL 2021. Meanwhile, Stokes is unhappy with the commentary of Sunil Gavaskar in an IPL match.
Stokes tightens Gavaskar
Stokes (Ben Stokes) tweeted a forehead emoji on a comment during his commentary without naming Gavaskar (Sunil Gavaskar). Actually, a match was played between Punjab and Delhi Capitals (PBKS vs DC) on Sunday. In this match, the 11th over of Punjab’s innings was brought by Kagiso Rabada. In this over of Rabada, Punjab opener Mayank Agarwal hit two sixes. After this Rabada threw a bouncer to KL Rahul. After this, Gavaskar (Sunil Gavaskar) commented, ‘What a bad bouncer. If a bouncer is to be thrown, it should be above the off-stump.
However, when the replay of this ball was seen, the ball was just above the off stump. After this, Ben Stokes has posted an emoji with a hand on his forehead in a tweet.
Commentator: “Such a poor bouncer, if you want to bowl a bouncer it must be over off stump”
REPLAY: bouncer line directly over Off Stump
