On Wednesday, Gujrat has beaten up Punjab team with a victory of 110 runs in the ongoing 86th season of the Ranji Trophy. Meanwhile, in the match, Pubjab’s pacer Siddarth Kaul bowled a beauty to Samit Gohel to dislodge the stumps in the air.
Punjab’s bowler Kaul has taken nine wickets in the match, however, unfortunately, bad luck was in the favour of Punjab throughout the match. During the third day of the match, Siddarth bowled a beauty to off the stumps while Samit Gohel was batting. However, the umpire’s decision to check for a no-ball saved the batsman as Kaul was found guilty of overstepping.
It all happened in the very first delivery of the over when Gujarat opening batsman Samit Gohel was absolutely clueless against a jaffa from Kaul. It was absolutely a brilliant delivery from the pacer, however, unluck made him bowl again the same delivery.
BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) has shared the video of the incident on their official website. They have added the video with the title, “Samit Gohil’s lucky escape.” Here we are attaching the video of the same at the below of this article.
