KKR vs RCB: Kuldeep Yadav Breaks Down On Field After Moeen Ali's Onslaught

It is rare to see one of the best bowlers in the world breaking down like that

In the high voltage clash between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Kuldeep was left on the field on the verge of a meltdown after Moeen Ali’s 3 sixes and 2 fours in his final over.

Kuldeep gave away as many as 59 runs in four overs. The chinaman created an embarrassing record for the joint-most runs in an innings for a spinner in Indian Premier League’s (IPL) history. He joined Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) Imran Tahir on top of the list. He is also the second-most expensive bowler for KKR in IPL history.

But, the 24-year-old had it rough in his fourth over when he faced the onslaught from Moeen Ali, smashing Kuldeep with fours and sixes. In the end, Kuldeep got the wicket of the Englishman but gave away as many as 27 runs in the 15th over of RCB’s innings.

It has been a tough season for the KKR spinner but never in his career has he been hit for so many runs in a single over. Looking visibly distraught, Kuldeep was seen welling up on the field after that performance.

While many trolled him on Twitter for the expensive spell, others tried to act sensibly and support him:

The left-arm spinner has had a forgetful IPL 2019 so far as he has claimed only 4 wickets in the season and leaked runs at an economy rate. With the upcoming World Cup 2019, the ODI bowler, who is ranked 7th, should ideally be physically and mentally prepared to take on the challenges.
