Eventful KKR warm-up game for Shakib
Shakib Al Hasan has had an ideal outing in Mumbai during his IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders’ third intra-squad warm-up match.
Shakib had a silent day in the second match, where he first took part after completing mandatory quarantine.
Just two days ahead of the start of IPL 2021, Shakib has shown glimpses of getting into the act. He bowled four overs taking two wickets for just eight runs for Gold team.
The Bangladeshi recruit’s fourth over was a maiden, in which he sent back Pawan Negi off the first ball. New Zealand’s Tim Seifert was his first wicket. Shakib also ran out Purple team’s captain Ben Cutting, the Australian all-rounder.
Shakib faced ten balls for his 17 runs as he held out to long on. He hit a four and a six.
Team Gold: Nitish Rana (captain), Venkatesh Iyer, Karun Nair, Shakib Al Hasan, Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik, Kamlesh Kagarkoti, Sunil Narine, Sandeep Warrier, Shivam Mavi and net bowlers.
Team Purple: Tim Seifert, Rahul Tripathi, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Sheldon Jackson, Ben Cutting (captain), Pawan Negi, Harbhajan Singh, CK Varun, Parsidh Krishna, Vaibhav Arora and net bowlers.
