During the second match of the 11th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) between Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Daredevils at Mohali, Axar Patel dismissed Shreyas Iyer to register revenge against the 23-year old right-hand batsman. After being put in to bat by Ravichandran Ashwin, Kings XI Punjab’s captain, Daredevils got off to shaky start. The visitors lost Colin Munro (4) in the third over. Iyer, who was retained by Delhi Daredevils ahead of the auction, walked in to join his captain at No. 3.

Shreyas Iyer dismissed by Axar Patel

Ashwin handed the fourth over of the innings to Axar Patel. Gautam Gambhir seized the opportunity and hit 17 runs off the left-arm spinner. He scored a couple of fours followed by a six.

Patel did not get to bowl in the powerplay after his expensive over. He bowled the first over after the powerplay. With a single to deep midwicket on the first delivery, Gambhir gave the strike to Iyer, who hit a towering six over the bowler’s head. Within no time, Patel had conceded 24 runs in eight balls.

On the penultimate delivery of the over, Patel came back from behind to take revenge from Iyer. Having seen the flighted delivery, the batsman had stepped out only to miss the ball and get stumped by Lokesh Rahul. Patel provided his team with the much needed wicket. Iyer ended up scoring 11 (11) with the help of one six.
