‘He should be benched next game’: Fans slam Mitchell Starc even as Aussie bowler defends 21 runs against RCB in last over

The KKR vs RCB match turned out be a thriller with Shreyas Iyer's men stealing victory by a single match to climb to the 2nd spot of the IPL table.

The KKR vs RCB turned out to be one of the best games IPL 2024 season with KKR clinching victory by a run at the end of an enthralling chase by RCB. IPL’s most expensive players Mitchell Starc once again proved too expensive, giving away 55 runs in 3 overs. Needing 21 runs in the last over, Starc was hit for 3 sixes by tailender Karn Sharma before Starc took his wicket to end RCB’s resistance. In spite of defending the runs, Starc faced a lot of flak for getting hit by Karn Sharma.

The KKR vs RCB match had twists and turns in every nook and corner. When Rajat Patidar and Will Jacks scored half centuries each, it looked like the game was out of reach for KKR. But then, Andre Russell sent the duo back to the pavillion in a single over. However, RCB were never off the game.

When Dinesh Karthik got out to Russell in the last delivery of the second last over, it looked all over for RCB. But Karn Sharma reignited hopes by hitting three sixes in the final over before being caught and bowled. With 3 runs needed in 1 ball, RCB batters ran hard but fell short as Phil Salt produced a brilliant run out.
