Bangalore pacer Umesh Yadav has been a subject of constant criticism for his dreadful display in the Indian Premier League. Against Punjab on Thursday, the bowler was at it once again, bowling arguably the worst ball of his career. Up against the Punjab skipper, KL Rahul, the pacer over-pitched his delivery to an extent that not even Rahul, but wicketkeeper Josh Philippe couldn't help but to watch the ball sail towards the boundary.
And while the pacer was getting the heat, Bangalore captain Virat Kohli showcased a shocking display on the night. The skipper dropped KL Rahul on two different occasions; one at mid-wicket and other at covers. The Punjab captain capitalized on the given opportunities and went on to score 132 off just 69 balls. His knock included 14 fours and seven sixes. Riding on his back, Punjab posted 206/3 on board.
Fans, meanwhile, had a go at the duo. This is what they are saying:
