Rishabh Pant, in an attempt to take on Rashid Khan during Delhi Capitals’ run-chase against the Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday, lost the grip of his bat, as it flew towards the short mid-wicket region. Kane Williamson, who was fielding at the position, retrieved the bat to his counterpart.
The Capitals, chasing a victory target of 135, were placed strongly at 97/2 in the 15th over, when Pant tried to take on Rashid for a boundary. The ball, pitched on the back of a length, skidded through wide outside off, and the left-hander went for a cut, only to lose his bat which went flying away to the mid-wicket region.
The Capitals eventually took the game by eight wickets, with Pant finishing unbeaten with a 21-ball 35.
