In Match 13 of VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL 2019), Kings XI Punjab’s costliest buy Sam Curran proved his worth with an incredible spell at the back end as the home team pulled off a miraculous 14-run victory against Delhi Capitals left stunned by an inexplicable batting collapse in Monday’s IPL encounter.
KXIP’s ‘million dollar man’ Curran picked up 4 for 11 in 2.2 overs including a hat-trick and was ably supported by Mohammed Shami as Delhi Capitals were shot out for 152 in 19.2 overs in pursuit of 167. From 144 for 3, Delhi lost their last seven wickets for 8 runs, something that will haunt them for days to come especially after Rishabh Pant and Colin Ingram set up what looked like an easy win.
On winning the match captain of Punjab Ashwin said “Not may times you defend at that stage of the match. When Rishabh hit the six, we just needed to hang in there. Credit to Shami and Curran. We were probably 25 runs short. We backed ourselves to defend with three spinners. All in all, dew also came in and played a factor. We were gonna bat first. We thought Chris wasn’t there. We wanted to give him all the license up front. We thought there was grip there. We are quite a bunch with experience and a lot of youngsters. We have to keep ourselves fresh. We are having a very good experience. I have never seen a crowd like this in Mohali. It was extremely loud.”
Meanwhile Kollywood Dance master Sathish who rose to fame through “Manada Mayilada” reality show who watched the match compared Ashwin’s captaincy with Dhoni’s captaincy.
In his tweet Sathish said “I saw msd in Ashwin. Wat a win . Sam Curran on target 🎯.” Check out his tweet here :

Many of his followers expressed their disappointments on his statement as they did not like the way he compared a legend in captaincy with a beginner. Check out some of their comments :
