The ongoing season of IPL 2021 keeps on getting better and better as the fans witnessed another nail-biting contest on Thursday. However, it was a rather difficult roller-coaster ride for the fans of Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals to digest.
Playing on a batting-friendly wicket in Mumbai, it was expected to be another high-scoring match, but things turned out to be completely different as Delhi Capitals were restricted to a modest total of 147/8 in 20 overs. Jaydev Unadkat, who returned to the RR side for the second match, silenced all his critics as he produced a heroic spell of 3/15 in 4 overs.
It was expected to be an easy run-chase for Sanju Samson's side but they lost early wickets and were reeling at 42/5 in 9.2 overs. This is when David Miller (who replaced the injured Ben Stokes in playing XI) played an explosive knock and smashed 62 runs off 43 deliveries. In the end, it was the INR 16.25 crore signing Chris Morris (36* off 18) who kept his nerves and took Rajasthan over the line, securing their first win of the season.
From Unadkat's heroics to Morris' redemption, Twitterati had a busy day as they expressed their excitement in the form of some hilarious memes.
Here are some of the best tweets:
