During the match between Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders on Tuesday, Steve Smith shuffled across while trying to execute a scoop shot, however, he edged the ball into his inner thigh, lying flat on the ground in pain for few seconds. Smith was later dismissed on the very next ball.
Steve Smith got the chance in the playing XI in place of an injured Prithvi Shaw. The Australian scored 39 runs off 34 runs in the match, also stitching a partnership of 32 runs with his opening partner Shikhar Dhawan. Earlier, KKR won the toss and asked Delhi Capitals to bat first. Shreyas Iyer (1), who looked in fine form in Delhi Capitals' previous matches in the UAE leg of IPL, was clean bowled by Sunil Narine.
Lockie Ferguson does the damage again, he gets Smith for 39 from 34 balls, this was the first match for Smith after his elbow injury. Lockie is turning out to be the go to man for Morgan. #IPL2021— Johns. (@CricCrazyJohns) September 28, 2021
