Former India cricket er Aakash Chopra has been making the ongoing SA20 interesting with his insights and analysis. Chopra brought up an interesting anecdote during the game between Pretoria Capitals and Joburg Super Kings, Chopra as he was sharing the commentary box with RP Singh.
As Alzarri Joseph ran out a non-striker off Phil Salt’s straight drive, Chopra asked RP Singh if he got a non-striker run out due to his straight drive. Singh’s answer surprised a lot of fans as he named Sachin Tendulkar a victim of his straight drive. The pacer revealed that he had said sorry to the Master Blaster back then. Chopra then proceeded to once again apologise to the Mumbai-born legend on his behalf via Twitter.
Reacting to this interaction, Tendulkar tweeted a hilarious reply as he stated how RP Singh has a unique ability to pick up wickets even with a bat in his hands. Sachin also wrote about how, for that instance, a straight drive wasn’t his favourite shot.
Check out Sachin Tendulkar’s reaction here:
Going back to the game, Salt took responsibility for dismissing his partner as he finished the match with a score of 52 in 30 balls and carried Pretoria Capitals to a win. After a brilliant bowling display, the Capitals restricted Joburg to a score of 122. James Neesham and Anrich Nortje were among the top performers as they picked up 3 wickets each.
Then in the second innings, Will Jacks smashed 34 off just 16 balls to give the Capitals a head start. Eventually, the Wayne Parnell-led team sealed the win in 13 overs and secured the top spot in the points table with three wins and one loss in four games.
