The Indian Premier League has seen a plethora of mixed emotions on the field so far. Be it tense, nerve-wracking moments, the league has seen it all. Besides that, the league saw hilarious moments as well.
Both the RCB players lacked proper communication on the field as they made a big blunder. KKR captain Eoin Morgan hit the ball high in the air when both Siraj and Chahal attempted to take a catch.
As it turned out, the duo went on to recreate the infamous Ajmal-Malik drop. The video clip of the incident went viral on all social media platforms. Chahal couldn’t believe what had happened after the missed opportunity.
A couple of balls after Chahal-Siraj miss a regulation catch due to miscommunication, the KKR captain does depart. Harshal Patel altered his pace and got rid of Eoin Morgan as Kohli took a good catch.
Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Eoin Morgan made his way back to the pavilion after scoring 29 off 23 balls. He smashed 1 four and 2 sixes to his name at a strike rate of 126.09.

The drama unfolded during the second ball of the 15th over bowled by Harshal Patel. Morgan tried to hit the ball with force but failed to time the ball properly. Meanwhile, the ball went towards between the short third-man and the backward point region.
Siraj and Chahal didn’t communicate with each other as none of the fielders made a proper attempt to take a catch. But Morgan didn’t make most of it as he departed after a couple of balls later.
