WATCH : Shreyas Iyer-Phil Salt kerfuffle after chaotic mixup


Kolkata Knight Riders chased down Lucknow Super Giants’ first-innings total of 161 with ease, securing victory with eight wickets and 32 balls remaining. Phil Salt led the charge with a dazzling 47-ball 89, while Shreyas Iyer provided solid support with a run-a-ball 38.

Their unbeaten partnership of 120 runs proved decisive. However, their partnership was not without drama, as they found themselves in a heated verbal exchange due to a close call between the wickets.

In the 12th over, KKR’s captain nudged a delivery from Mohsin Khan towards backward point and set off for a single. Meanwhile, the fielder inside the circle swiftly fielded the ball, prompting Shreyas to turn back casually.

However, Salt had already sprinted halfway down the pitch and had to quickly change direction, with little chance of reaching the crease in time. Fortunately for Salt, the throw was off-target, allowing him to escape unscathed.

Despite this stroke of luck, Salt expressed his frustration to Shreyas, who stood his ground, resulting in an animated exchange between the two teammates. The incident amused Twitter users, who swiftly shared their reactions on social media.
