Rishabh Pant is known for his flamboyant way of stroke-making. The Delhi Capitals captain hasn't quite found his top form but every time he is on the strike, there is something or the other happening. In the second ball of the 11th over of the DC innings in the ongoing match against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai, Pant managed to hit a reverse sweep for four but dropped his bat in the process.

The bowler was mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy and even though the ball reached the boundary as it went over the short third man fielder, for a moment Pant would have had his heart in his mouth. The 24-year-old lost grip of his bat while playing that shot and it flew off his hand, only narrowly escaping the stumps.

Have a look at the incident here:

However, Pant could not make the best use of this lucky escape and got out in the 13th over for 27 from 14 balls. His brief innings included 2 fours and a couple of sixes. The half-centuries from Delhi openers Prithvi Shaw and David Warner have given Delhi a great platform from where they are eyeing a total in excess of 200.
