After Andre Russell’s unbeaten 25-ball 64 that helped Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) post 209-run target on the board, it was Harshit Rana who hogged the limelight after he dismissed Mayank Agarwal early in the innings. Rana, who came to bowl his third over and sixth of the inning, gave a frightful send off to Mayanka Agarwal.

Rana, who bowled a 128.1kph bouncer on the third ball of the sixth over, the Indian batter opted to go for a pull shot, which went straight towards the man at deep backward square leg. After he got into the safe hands of Rinku Singh, Harshit Rana gave a stare before giving a flying kiss. Things did not end here as Mayank Agarwal in return dropped a death stare, video of which is now doing rounds on social media.

It is to be further noted that Mayank stood tall and smashed Harsit Rana’s 140.6kph delivery for a maximum in the bowler’s previous over.
