In his first bowling over of the match, Shardul Thakur made a stunning comeback and took a crucial wicket for Kolkata Knight Riders against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
After playing 7 matches without making any significant contribution as a bowler, Thakur proved his worth in the game against SRH. Abhishek Sharma, who had scored a fifty in the previous game, was caught out by a brilliant catch from Andre Russell, making it a big wicket for KKR.
Thakur’s ball was a slow length delivery aimed at the stumps, which Sharma tried to hit with a big heave. However, he made poor contact and ended up sending the ball high into the sky. Russell, positioned at deep backward square leg, had to run in and make a forward dive to complete a stunning catch.
With this wicket, Thakur has shown that he still has what it takes to make an impact as a bowler for KKR.
