Harshal Patel deceived Shikhar Dhawan beautifully with an excellent slower ball in the IPL on Friday. The Royal Challengers Bangalore were taking on the Delhi Capitals, with opener Dhawan going well for his 43 off 35 balls. His was a key wicket, with Harshal again showing why he has had such great success in this year’s edition of the competition. Looking to set a defendable target, the Capitals faltered after a superb opening partnership between Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw, reaching 158/4 at the end of the nineteenth over.
👀 But Harshal Patel bites back!
A devilish slower ball and Shikhar Dhawan departs for 43! 👋
Patel has the wickets record for a single season in his sights…
