The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) fast bowler, Khaleel Ahmed earned a name for himself in the IPL 2019 by scalping 19 wickets in the season, but ever since, he has failed to prove his worth. He has often been criticized for his bowling inconsistencies and he has also seen himself become unpopular amongst fans owing to his somewhat passive-aggressive attitude.

In comparison to 2020, Khaleel has had a decent outing in this season so far, but Sunday, the left-arm fast bowler once again left the SRH fans frustrated – this time, though, it was his fielding that was responsible for it. On the third ball of the 16th over, with RR cruising, a returning Bhuvneshwar Kumar managed to find the edge of Jos Buttler’s bat. Buttler decided to got hard on a wide delivery and looked like it was going straight to the hands of the short third man.

Eventually, the pace on the ball took the ball away from the fielder but still, nevertheless, it looked like a boundary should have been prevented as the ball was landing just yards away from the southpaw pacer. However, an atrocious effort from the fielder, Khaleel Ahmed, ended up gifting four valuable runs to the Royals.

As the ball took the outside edge of Buttler’s bat and flew, Khaleel, having no clue where the ball was, started jogging almost like he had no clue. The ball bounced in front of him and should have been stopped, but Khaleel, for some reason, ended up running all over it.

The SRH fast bolwer comically tried stopping the ball from reaching the boundary but his initial mess-up proved to be too costly as the pace on the ball, and the pace of the outfield, ended up taking the ball to the boundary. Khaleel sure did not earn any brownie points with that effort.
