With the Indian Premier League (IPL) back, unstoppable cricketing action is back in India. The second match of the 15th edition of the tournament is underway between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals. After opting to bowl first, Delhi capitals have managed to keep MI’s scorecard in check with regular wickets.
Kuldeep Yadav has been the leader for DC with three crucial wickets. While he dismissed Rohit Sharma and Anmolpreet Singh as his first two scalps, he got the dangerous Pollard for his third wicket in the game. Although it was Kuldeep who was bowling, it was more of a fielder’s wicket, considering the effort put in. Tim Seifert made a full-stretched side jump to take a gem of a catch off Kuldeep’s bowling.
