Experienced Umesh sacked by KKR for ‘this’ letter; Returned to the fleet after 1 year, attacked Pandya in the tent
The 39th match of the 16th season of the IPL was played on Saturday (April 29) at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. In this match, Kolkata Knight Riders Vs. Gujarat Titans teams were facing each other. The Gujarat team led by Hardik Pandya won this match by 7 wickets. However, one thing about this match is currently the most talked about. Let’s find out what it is…
An important change was made in the Kolkata Knight Riders team during the coin toss in this match. Captain Nitish Rana gave a chance to the young player. Interestingly, Rana dropped veteran bowler Umesh Yadav from the playing XI and gave a chance to young player Harshit Rana. Kolkata’s bowling department is constantly undergoing changes. The reason for this is that KKR’s fast bowling department seems to be weakening. Although Umesh Yadav has been played consistently as a batsman, he is yet to make a special innings for the team.
So, it can be seen that the musical chairs of the bowlers of the Kolkata team are going on. Sometimes he is being played, sometimes he is being played. In this match against Gujarat, Umesh’s position in the team was changed and the bowler Harshit Rana was dropped. As it happened, as the player Rasikh Salam was injured, the team paid Harshit 20 lakhs to join the team. However, he could not get into the field in any of the previous matches. Umesh Yadav’s poor performance gave Harshit Rana a chance in the match against Gujarat.
Looking at Harshit Rana’s IPL performance, he got a chance in just 2 matches last season, in which he managed to take only one wicket. But after a year he got a place in the playing eleven. In this match he took 1 wicket while bowling 3 overs against Gujarat for 35 runs. He took the important wicket of the skipper Hardik Pandya.
