Old IPL Video Of Ambati Rayudu’s Run Out
Meanwhile, old IPL videos are circulating on the web during ‘no cricket’ period. One of the videos is of Ambati Rayudu’s hilarious run-out from Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Daredevils match in 2018 season. The incident happened during the 5th ball of 19th over. MS Dhoni faced a Trent Boult’s which hit his gloves and went towards keeper Rishabh Pant. However, Pant couldn’t hold on to it.
In the meantime, Rayudu the non-striker had reached at striker’s end but Dhoni hadn’t moved an inch. The skipper was in no mood of taking a run. Now again Rayudu started running to non-striker’s end. But Trent Boult’s direct throw on to the stumps ended his innings on 41 runs. Following the dismissal of Rayudu, the camera immediately panned towards the CSK dugout where Fleming and Bravo were seen grinning while Rayudu walked back. Here is the video of this old IPL incident.
