Ben Stokes, an all-rounder from the participating team Rajasthan Royals jabs the legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar, who is currently executing the commentary in IPL 2021.
This whole incident starts from yesterday’s match which was played between DC and PBKS. Ben Stokes trolls the former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar for not being attentional during the match and delivering the wrong commentary to the curious crowd. He took this to Twitter and slams the former Indian cricketer by posting a tweet which only talks about the blunder committed by the commentator during the match and not directly taking the name of former Indian batsman Sunil Gavaskar. He adds his feeling of frustration by adding facepalming emoji to his tweet.
“Commentator: “Such a poor bouncer, if you want to bowl a bouncer it must be over Off Stump” REPLAY: bouncer line directly over Off Stump”, is all that Ben Stokes wrote to express his disgust.

In the last match, Sunil Gavaskar commented on Delhi Capitals’ Kagiso Rabada for not bowling bouncers off-stump. But, he was proven wrong as soon as the bowling was replayed. Kagiso Rabada clearly did bowl his bouncer off-stumps having KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal batting on the opposite side. Sunil Gavaskar did this indifferent commentary right after the two sixes hit by Punjab’s Mayank Agarwal in the 11th over.
However, Delhi Capitals defeated the Kings by six wickets. It seemed to become possible by Shikhar Dhawan’s outstanding performance as he pulled off 92 runs. Rishabh Pant didn’t miss any chance to come out to laud Dhawan’s playing and calls him a great and experienced cricketer. Coming to the loss of the opposite team, Rahul stood quite disappointed and wished to have a good comeback in the upcoming matches.
