Kolkata Knight Riders’ speedster Shivam Mavi was spotted giving an ‘abusive’ send-off to Delhi Daredevils’ opening batsman Colin Munro after he picked-up his wicket during Match Number 26 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) season 2018 between DD vs KXIP at Ferozshah Stadium in New Delhi on April 27.
The incident happened during the 7th over of KKR’s innings when Munro failed to read Mavi’s low full-toss delivery, bowled at 143 kmph, and the ball hit the stumps after hitting the edge of the bat.
Mavi got rid of the danger man Munro who was looking in fine form.
Following the dismissal, U-19 speedster from Noida was spotted giving an ‘abusive’ send-off to Munro as he walked back towards the pavilion.
