WATCH: Ben Stokes and Stuart Binny involved in a comedy of errors in the field for Rajasthan Royals

The ongoing edition of the IPL never seems to be short of on field drama as Ben Stokes and Stuart Binny grabbed the headlines for their sloppy fielding in the match between The Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. It was a comedy of errors from the two Rajasthan Royals all rounders on the field costing the home side two extra runs which took the skin out of the Delhi Capitals run chase.

It all happened during the 19th over of the innings when Joffra Archer was bowling to Rishabh Pant with Delhi needing 16 runs from 9 balls. Archer bowled a slower bouncer to Pant, who tried to hit it out of the ground but failed to get the timing right. The ball went straight up in the air and two Rajasthan Royals fielders seemed interested for a moment. Luck however wasn’t on the Royals’ side as the ball landed in no man’s land and Rishabh Pant had already settled for a single by the time any of the fielders got near the ball.

Things turned worse for the Royals’ when Stuart Binny, who came charging in from deep mid wicket, slipped on the field giving away the extra run as Pant and Collin Ingram ran through for a second. Ben Stokes chased the ball down but the ball slipped out of his hand before he could make the throw at the wicketkeeper’s end. He himself slipped as well in the process of going for it and the batsmen had already come back for a third before the throw eventually came at the wicketkeeper’s end.

Watch the video here:

Earlier, Ajinkya Rahane roared back to form with a scintillating century to propel the Rajasthan Royals to 191/6 in their 20 overs. Rahane remained unbeaten on 105 off 63 balls with 11 fours and 3 sixes while skipper Steve Smith contributed with 50 off just 32 balls. It was however Rishabh Pant’s breathtaking 78 unbeaten off 36 balls along with valuable contributions from Shikhar Dhawan (54) and Prithvi Shaw (42) that saw the Delhi Capitals gun down the 192-run target with four balls to spare.
