KKR vs DC: Watch – Harshit Rana with another controversial farewell, tells Abishek Porel to leave after rattling his stumps

Harshit Rana, Abishek Porel

Harshit Rana grabbed attention earlier this season when he dismissed Mayank Agarwal after dismissing him during the match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad at Eden Gardens last month.

The right-arm pacer gave a goodbye flying kiss on Mayank Agarwal’s face after dismissing him. He faced criticism from various quarters for his behavior towards the senior batsman and the KKR pacer might find himself in a similar situation once again after dismissing Abishek Porel during the ongoing game against Delhi Capitals at Eden Gardens.

The game did not start on a good note for Harshit Rana as he conceded 16 runs in his first over. He was introduced into the attack during the fifth over and the pacer failed to impress immediately. Abhishek Porel took him to the cleaners in that over, hitting him for two fours and a six.

However, Harshit Rana had the last laugh as he dismissed the DC opener in his next over. After Rishabh Pant took a single on the first ball of the seventh over, Harshit Rana bowled two dot balls to the left-handed batsman. On the fourth ball, Porel decided to play an unconventional shot and paid the price for it.

He walked a long way and attempted a ramp shot. However, Porel was unable to make any contact with the ball and the ball went on to tear off his middle and leg stumps. And as Porel immediately turned around to walk towards the locker room, Harshit Rana decided to dismiss him. The KKR pacer asked Porel to leave the field with a hand gesture before celebrating the wicket with his teammates. In particular, Rana also thought about giving him a flying kiss goodbye, but he avoided it.

Harshit Rana would hope he doesn’t get fined for his final farewell. He was fined a hefty fine for sending off Mayank Agarwal as the IPL deducted 60 per cent of the match fees.
