The 30th match of the IPL 2022 is being played between Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. In the second innings, RR pacer, Prasidh Krishna was seen giving a verbal send-off to the KR opener, Aaron Finch after the latter’s dismissal.
Earlier in the game, KKR skipper, Shreyas Iyer won the toss and chose to bowl first which has been the case in all the matches of the IPL 2022 so far. After many matches, Rajasthan Royals’ openers gave them a terrific start, with mainly Jos Buttler doing the heavy scoring in the powerplay. Padikkal and Buttler added 97 runs in 9.4 overs before Padikkal was bowled by Sunil Narine.
Sanju Samson then came to the party and smashed 38 runs in 19 balls, but the whole RR innings was about Jos Buttler. Jos reached his second IPL century this season off 59 balls. He got out for 103 in 61 balls and caught off the bowling of Pat Cummins, but it was an excellent inning. Once Buttler got out, RR batters started throwing their hands at every ball and eventually, RR reached a daunting score of 217/5 owing to the late blitz from Shimron Hetmyer.
During the chase, KKR suffered an early blow on the first blow as Hetmyer’s direct hit sent back Sunil Narine for a duck. However, Aaron Finch and skipper, Shreyas Iyer stitched a brilliant partnership of 107 runs for the second wicket before Prasidh Krishna dismissed Finch in the 9th over.
KKR had already scored 14 runs in the over but Aaron Finch played an upper cut on a short, wide ball but it finds the bottom of the bat and the ball went high up in the air and Karun Nair made no mistake in completing the catch. However, after the dismissal Krishna was seen giving verbal send-off to Finch, who amassed 58 off 28 balls.

Prasidh Krishna getting the treatment he deserves for ending playoff hopes for KKR in 2019 & 2020. Biggest fraud in T20 (vs KKR)
