Delhi Capitals’ star spinner Kuldeep Yadav dismissed CSK all-rounder Moeen Ali in the IPL 2023 game on May 10. Moeen Ali had smashed Kuldeep Yadav for 26 runs in IPL 2019 and the DC spinner was finally able to get revenge after 4 years after which there were some interesting reactions by cricket fans on Twitter.
Moeen Ali came out to bat at the number 4 position and was expected to take control of the situation as CSK openers Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway failed to make an impact on the game. However, he failed to deliver as per the expectations of Chennai Super Kings’ team management.
Kuldeep Yadav gets rid of Moeen Ali in CSK vs DC game, avenges his IPL 2019 assault
Moeen Ali was having a tough time in the middle on a spin-friendly wicket at the Chepauk Stadium. He had scored just 7 runs after facing 11 deliveries against the spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel.
In the 10th over of CSK innings, Kuldeep Yadav bowled a tossed-up delivery outside the off stump and out of reach of the CSK batter. However, Moeen was looking to go for a big shot as he stepped out to loft the ball over the cover fielder but could only manage a thick outside edge.
The ball went flying towards the backward point fielder as Mitchell Marsh took a simple catch and Moeen had to take the long walk back to the pavilion. After the dismissal, Kuldeep Yadav raised his arms in triumph as he knew he had completed the revenge of IPL 2019 when he had conceded 26 runs against Moeen Ali in the RCB vs KKR game.
After Kuldeep Yadav completed his revenge against Moeen Ali, there were some amazing reactions by cricket fans on Twitter. “Kuldeep Yadav wins the battle this time against Moeen Ali,” wrote one of the users on Twitter.
In the 3 innings faced against Kuldeep, Moeen Ali had smashed him at a strike rate of 276.5. The DC spinner eventually finished with the figures of 1 for 28 in his four-over spell and constantly kept the pressure on CSK batters.
Chennai Super Kings could only post a total of 167-8 on a tricky Chepauk wicket. However, Delhi Capitals could not chase down the target as they only scored 140 runs in their 20 overs allowing CSK a victory by 27 runs.
