The Indian Premier League (IPL) is currently underway and cricket fans are being treated to some exciting matches every evening. Apart from the intense cricket battles, it is also engaging, for some fans to listen to what the cricket experts and broadcasters have to say about the match and what is their opinion on the game.

However, a Hindi commentator made a blunder on air, when he referred to the left-arm pacer from Delhi Capitals Khaleel Ahmed as Khaleel Yadav. The broadcaster might have got carried away and mixed the names of left-arm chinaman Kuldeep Yadav and Khaleel Ahmed, both of whom were in great wicket-taking form during DC’s win over Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday.

A video of the commentator making the mistake while describing the fall of a wicket has surfaced.

Have a look at it here:

DC eventually registered a comprehensive 44-run win over KKR in this game. Other than Yadav and Khaleel, David Warner and Prithvi Shaw were the star performers for their side who both scored half-centuries. At the slog overs, Shardul Thakur gave them the much-needed impetus as he finished with an unbeaten 29 off 11 balls.

For Kolkata, who won the toss and opted to bowl first, Sunil Narine was the pick of the bowlers scalping 2 for 21 in his 4 overs. Shreyas Iyer too smashed a half-century but found little support from the other batters in their chase of over 200.

“We would have fielded first but didn’t think much. As a batting unit we wanted to put pressure on the opposition. In these conditions, when the dew is not there, if teams score 170-180 it is decent and the pressure is not as much as it is when the score is 200 or more,” winning captain Rishabh Pant said after the game.

The victory has taken DC to the sixth position in the points table with 2 wins and 2 defeats in 4 games. KKR though remain at the second position after their second defeat in five matches.
