Shardul Thakur’s send-off of Quinton de Kock did not go down well with Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma in the final against Chennai Super Kings
Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper Rohit Sharma was not a happy man after Chennai Super Kings (CSK) pacer Shardul Thakur gave an animated send-off to Quinton de Kock in the final clash of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Sunday. Thakur, who was slammed for a six over deep mid wicket on the previous delivery by the left-hander, bounced back with a well-executed short ball and was seemingly pumped after the dismissal as he exacted his revenge.
The incident happened in the 5th over of the Mumbai Indians’ innings when de Kock, who was batting on 29, failed to time his pull shot and ended up edging the delivery. CSK skipper MS Dhoni took the catch and what followed was a send-off from Shardul, who used his finger to show de Kock the way to the pavilion. Rohit, who was batting on the other end, was seemingly infuriated by the act and could be seen walking over to the umpires to have a word with them. Umpire Ian Gould then walked over to the young pacer and had a chat with him, asking him to calm down.
