IPL 2017: In the match between Delhi Daredevils and Kolkata Knight Riders on Friday, Delhi Daredevils’ Sanju Samson and Amit Mishra made a mess of a very simple and crucial catch. KKR’s star batsman Robin Uthappa, who has been in terrific form in iPL 2017, mistimed a pull shot of Kagiso Rabada’s bowling and it went straight up in the air.
Both, Mishra and Samson came running towards the ball and backed off at the same time. It was a very funny moment as both the fielders saw the ball coming to the ground and they just kept looking at it.
Uthappa, who has been striking the ball very well, was batting on 9 runs when this catch dropped and he went on to score 59 runs off just 33 balls. It was his partnership with captain Gautam Gambhir that took the match away from Daredevils.

Delhi Daredevils is probably the most youngest team in the tournament. There have been a few good individual performances but they haven’t really made a mark in the tournament as a team. It is true that they suffered some big injury blows before the start of the tournament, but in a tournament of this level, this can’t be used as an excuse.
DD’s captain Zaheer Khan, who recently got engaged to Bollywood actress Sagarika Ghatge, was very unhappy with the fielding effort and he can be seen clapping sarcastically in the video. After the match, Zaheer asked for a better from his teammates.
