IPL 2021 KKR vs DC: Big fight between R Ashwin & Tim Southee- Heart of the matter?
DC skipper Rishabh Pant and Ashwin had picked a second run off the last ball of the 19th over and that seemed to have irked the KKR outfit as some consider it to be against the guidelines of Fair Play to take a run when the ball thrown by the fielder ricochets off the batter.
It finally needed former KKR skipper Eoin Morgan to come and stop the heated chat. DC coach Ricky Ponting was also seen speaking to umpire Nitin Menon during the innings break. While one isn’t sure about the topic that was discussed by the two, it could be the same point.
