Former Mumbai Indians player Krunal Pandya was ecstatic after dismissing Kieron Pollard which ended rivals’ hope of winning their first game of IPL 2022. He even kissed the helmet of the West Indies all-rounder. Playing for Lucknow Super Giants, Krunal took three wickets and conceded just 19 runs from 4 overs.
However, after dismissing Pollard, he was over the moon and revealed the reason.
“I thank God for getting the wicket of Pollard, or else he would have talked about it a lot for taking my wicket – so it is 1-1”.
While Krunal scored 1, Pollard managed 19 runs. The game went in favour of LSG, who won the match by 36 runs.
The captain of Lucknow, KL Rahul, was named the Man of the Match for scoring an unbeaten 103, his second century of the season.
Chasing 169, MI lost regular wickets and could manage just 132/8 in 20 overs. The five-time champions are still winless in the tournament.
