WATCH : Mumbai’s chase hit a snag with flying kite crashing the party


The Delhi Capitals had a blast on the field after Mumbai skipper Hardik Pandya chose to bat first. Jake Fraser McGurk led their batting onslaught with a sensational 84 off just 27 deliveries.

Shai Hope also chipped in with a brisk cameo of 41 runs off 17 balls, while Tristan Stubbs provided a late surge with 48 off 25 deliveries, powering the hosts to a formidable total of 257/4 in 20 overs.

However, when Mumbai’s openers Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan came to bat, a comical interruption occurred, adding an unexpected twist to the game.

In his debut appearance, Lizaad Williams opened the bowling for Delhi upon the instructions of skipper Rishabh Pant. The Proteas’ pacer started well, conceding just four runs off the first four deliveries. However, as Williams prepared to deliver the fourth ball, a stray kite drifted onto the field, landing near Rohit Sharma.

Acting swiftly, Sharma retrieved the kite and handed it to Pant. Amidst the light-hearted moment, Pant, known for his on-field humor, attempted to fly the kite. But the situation took an unexpected turn when leg umpire Navdeep Singh Sidhu intervened, retrieving the kite from Pant and removing it from the playing area.

The incident sparked amusement across social media platforms, with Twitter buzzing about this unexpected interruption.
