SRH vs RR: Watch - Sandeep Sharma's bizarrely hilarious fielding blunder upsets Avesh Khan

Sandeep Sharma made a strange mistake on the field during the ongoing second qualifier match between Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

The incident took place in the seventh over when Avesh Khan was bowling to Travis Head. On the fifth ball of the over, Avesh bowled a long ball outside off stump and Head clipped the ball to the left of Sandeep Sharma, who was standing at third man.

Sandeep Sharma started running towards his right and it looked like a regulation save for him. He arrived on time but strangely failed to get hold of the ball. The ball hit the back of his thigh before escaping for four. What looked like a single turned into a four for Head and SRH. Seeing this, Avesh Khan was upset.

For RR, Trent Boult starred in the ball, taking three wickets in the powerplay, while Avesh Khan also claimed three. Sandeep Sharma, on the other hand, got two wickets.

“Understood what we were up against. A batting line-up that likes to hit boundaries. There was a mix of boundaries and a mix of wickets, which is a bit unusual. We took wickets throughout the game and that restricted us. a score in which we are quite confident”, Boult said after the innings.

“You always try to be aggressive, the hardest thing is to adapt to the terrain. The last two wickets we played were probably the best two of the entire tournament, which is great for this time of the tournament. We held up very well.” “As a group and the way we finished at the death along with the spinners in the middle, we have restricted them to a good total,” he added.

The winner of the ongoing game will face Kolkata Knight Riders in the final, scheduled for Sunday.
