Mumbai Indians withdraw KL Rahul run-out appeal

In recent years, KL Rahul happens to be one of the best batsmen in the league. Hence, teams chalk out plans to get him out. Especially, with the situation that the team is in, Mumbai Indians would be desperate to get the Punjab Kings skipper out. However, they let go of an opportunity, although it was genuine.

In the sixth over of Punjab’s batting innings, Krunal Pandya bowled a yorker to Chris Gayle. Gayle hit the ball straight, and it ricochetted off KL Rahul

to fall in the hands of Krunal. He quickly took the bails off and appealed for the run-out. However, both Krunal and Rohit Sharma withdrew their appeal after knowing that KL was hurt by it and objected the appeal. This was in line with the Spirit of the Game. KL Rahul, too, responded to the gesture. He quickly gave a thumbs up to Rohit Sharma. In the next over itself, KL Rahul got out Kieron Pollard.

The defending champions win hearts after the gesture
