Ate six first, wicket came on the next and then the accident happened… RCB’s star bowler narrowly escaped

Punjab Kings beat most of the bowlers of Bangalore (RCB) in this innings, but Harshal Patel bowled tremendously and took 4 wickets for Punjab.

Medium pacer Harshal Patel has been performing consistently for Royal Challengers Bangalore since last season. Harshal Patel, who made the record by taking the most wickets in the last season, is continuously achieving success for Bangalore in IPL 2022 as well. Along with the wicket in this season, he has been successful in controlling the wicket runs as well. Harshal also performed strongly against Punjab Kings on Friday 13 May, but during this he had to face a situation where his happiness was soon on the verge of turning into a nightmare. He narrowly escaped from a dangerous accident.

This incident happened in the 18th over of Punjab’s innings. This over was full of ups and downs for Harshal. Harpreet Brar of Punjab hit a brilliant six on the second ball of this over. It seemed that the over would be expensive, but Harshal also got the wicket of Harpreet on the very next ball. A moment’s despair turned into happiness for Harshal and Bangalore. However, something happened with Harshal on the very next ball, which would have turned his happiness into a big shock.

For the fourth ball of the over, when Harshal completed his run-up and was about to bowl after reaching the crease, that’s when his back leg slipped badly and twisted near the ankle. Harshal fell there and the players and team management of Bangalore were shocked. It seemed that Harshal’s leg got twisted and often such incidents have resulted in major injuries to the bowlers, due to which they are out of the field for several days. However, Harshal and RCB had good luck and nothing happened to them. He immediately got back up and the fans including the entire team heaved a sigh of relief.

Harshal not only completed that over, but also returned to bowl in the 20th over and took 2 wickets giving only 3 runs. In this match, Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingston batted for Punjab and scored stormy half-centuries. With the help of both of them, Punjab scored 209 runs for 9 wickets in 20 overs. Despite such thrashing, Harshal’s performance was good and he took 4 wickets for just 34 runs in 4 overs.
