Karthik narrowly escaped with Rishabh Pant’s bat
Rishabh Pant tried to play a quick shot on the first ball of the 17th over of the Delhi Capitals (DC) innings, but due to poor bounce, the ball hit his pads and went towards the stumps. Rishabh Pant swings his bat vigorously to save the ball from hitting the wicket, which keeps Karthik going. By showing understanding, Karthik saved Pant’s bat from hitting his own face and fell on the field.
