Chris Lynn gets bowled like MS Dhoni

Chris Lynn gets bowled like MS Dhoni: The Knight Riders batsman received a reprieve early in his innings against Royals at Jaipur.

During the 21st match of the ongoing 12th season of the Indian Premier League between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders at Jaipur, Kolkata Knight Riders batsman Chris Lynn received a reprieve early in his innings.

It all happened on the second delivery of the fourth over when Lynn inside edged a Dhawal Kulkarni delivery to his leg-stump. Despite glowing, the bails didn’t fall-off which eventually went in the favour of the batsman as he was adjourned not-out.

With the ball running to the boundary, KKR received four additional runs as leg byes, something which came as salt on Rajasthan’s wounds.

It is worth mentioning that Royals batsman Rahul Tripathi had dropped Knight Riders all-rounder Sunil Narine on the previous delivery. With Kulkarni remaining wicket-less after creating two chances on consecutive balls, the 30-year old cricketer should consider himself highly unfortunate.

Chasing a 140-run target, Knight Riders got off to a brisk start as they scored 65 runs without losing a wicket in the powerplay.

Earlier, Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni had been involved in a similar dismissal after the bails didn’t fall-off despite the ball hitting them. As recent as yesterday, Kings XI Punjab batsman Lokesh Rahul received a second chance after the bails didn’t fall-off after Dhoni put on display a direct-hit.
