Collin Ingram and Axar Patel combinedly put on an incredible fielding display at the boundary ropes to dismiss Kings XI Punjab opener Chris Gayle after the latter bludgeoned his way to a 37 ball 69 at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi. The Universal Boss struck 6 fours and five sixes en route to his half century knock only to be undone by a bit of brilliance at the boundary from Ingram.
It all happened on the second delivery of the 13th over when Sandeep Lamichhane was bowling to Gayle. Lamichhane, who was conceded 33 runs in his first 13 balls, bowled the wrong one to Gayle who failed to get the power behind the pull and ended up skiing it to deep mid wicket. Ingram, who was positioned at deep mid-wicket, completed the catch right on the edge of the boundary cushion but threw it all the way back to Axar at long on upon realizing that his body weight was going to take him over the ropes.
The back hand flick from Ingram was just as perfect as Axar did not have to move at all in order to complete the catch. Lamichhane, who had travelled the distance a number of times already in the match, must have heaved a sigh of relief to see Chris Gayle heading back to the pavilion. The wicket of Gayle changed the complexion of the game completely as Punjab were looking good enough for 180 at one stage but in the end could only muster 163/7 in their 20 overs.
