Funny selfie moment
Pat Cummins and Shivam Mavi were at the crease and Chris Morris, was bowling. The score had only reached 127 runs with, just 6 balls remaining. Morris bowled a length ball and Cummins, smashed the ball for a huge six over wide long off.
Cummins had smashed 65 runs in previous game and was, looking dangerous again. Hence, his wicket was important, if Rajasthan had to stop Kolkata under 140.
Then, on the next ball, Morris ran in again. It was a short delivery and Cummins, again looked to hit it for a six, by pulling it over deep mid wicket. However, the timing was not great and so, the ball could only go as far as, the fielder stationed at mid wicket.
Then, Riyan Parag took the catch easily and did a mock selfie celebration with his team mate Rahul Tewathia. It was a rather funny moment as both the players actually held the ball like it was a camera, and then both of them stood in front of the ball and posed in a smiling face.
It was a comical and hilarious moment of the match.
