Although at one point of time where the match looked to slip away from RR’s hands, some restricted bowling got back the side in the game. However, there wasn’t much drama also in the match, but a moment saw Indian all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin get involved in a banter with Ajinkya Rahane.
The incident took place in the last over of the powerplay. On the second ball of the sixth over, the Indian off spinner aborted his delivery at the very last moment. On the next delivery, Rahane who was at strike backed away, with both sharing some looks.
However, the next delivery saw Rahane smash Ashwin for a six over the covers to bring the drama to rest.
