While Riyan Parag stole the show with his ‘selfie celebration’ in the first innings of the match between Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), it was David Miller whose juggle with the ball in the dugout hogged the limelight in the second innings of the game.
It happened after the 6th over of the Rajasthan Royals’ innings when they were at 50 with the loss of two wickets. During the break between the overs, Miller was spotted flaunting his juggling talent to his teammates in the dugout. While it was indeed an impressive skill, cricketer-turned-commentator Ian Bishop trolled him by saying that “anyone can do that”.

As far as the game was concerned, Rajasthan Royals openers – Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal managed to put up 21 runs in 3.2 overs before Varun Chakravarthy trapped Buttler in front of the stumps for 5 runs. However, the spinner gave away 13 runs which saw RR putting up 30 runs after 4 overs. Sanju Samson was seen in his absolute best as he got off to the mark with a boundary through the gap of cover and point.
On the other hand, young Yashasvi Jaiswal also showed some glimpse of his class in the very first match he has been playing this season. He replaced Manan Vohra in the playing eleven and put up a good show with his 17-ball 22 which also included five boundaries. However, he couldn’t stay long in the middle as a pitched up delivery from Shivam Mavi sent him back to the pavilion.
Riding on skipper Samson’s unbeaten 42, RR eventually got home with 6 wickets in hand and 7 balls to spare.
