IPL 2023: KKR takes successful DRS to dismiss Harry Brook for a duck

In a crucial moment of the match, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) successfully took a Decision Review System (DRS) against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), resulting in the dismissal of Harry Brook.

Anukul Roy bowled an in-drifter to Brook, who missed it while trying to paddle it away. The ball hit his thigh pad and trickled to fine leg, prompting a huge appeal from the KKR fielders. However, the umpire thought there was bat on it and did not give it out.

KKR, sensing an opportunity, went for a review, which confirmed that Brook had not made any contact with the bat. The ball had hit him in line and was going on to hit the top of leg stump, according to the ball tracker. As a result, Brook had to depart for a 4-ball duck, a significant blow for SRH.

Brook had scored a century in his previous game against KKR, making his wicket even more valuable.

The KKR fielders were quick to celebrate, knowing that they had made a crucial breakthrough at an important moment in the match.

The successful review highlighted the importance of using the DRS judiciously, as it can often be the difference between winning and losing in a closely contested match.
