VIDEO: Lord Shardul tries to show his Football skills but fails to save the Boundary!

IPL 2022, 45th match of the ongoing season Delhi Capitals are taking on Lucknow Supergiants at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. LSG won the toss and chose to bat first. Starting off well they set a target of 196 for DC.

Shardul Thakur who is fondly called “The Lord” by fans, has been titled for his wonders he does on the cricket field. But today his football skills went wrong and missed a very much stoppable ball which raced to the boundary in the 8th over. The Pacer tried to stop the ball at the long off boundary which came from the bat of KL Rahul with his leg but it went for a boundary.

DC skipper Rishabh Pant was seen doing a lot of changes in the bowling from the start of the innings and his sixth change in bowling came in by bringing Kuldeep in the eighth over. Kuldeep who’s having a great season is the highest wicket taker for DC in the ongoing season. The first ball Kuldeep delivered a flighted one which came off well from Rahul’s bat and went racing to the long off boundary where Shardul was fielding. Thakur chased the ball but acknowledging it’s beyond his reach he threw his legs to stop but the ball went to the boundary after hitting his leg.

Again a very fine innings was seen from the LSG’s skipper KL Rahul as well as their inform batsman Deepak Hooda. Both scored half centuries to take their team to a comfortable total. It’s now DC’s responsibility to take themselves to the victory to escalate their position in the points table.
