However, amidst their formidable stand, a heated verbal exchange highlighted a brief hiccup in their coordination. During the 12th over of the innings, a miscommunication between the two batters almost led to a calamitous run-out situation. As Shreyas played a delivery towards backward point, he hesitated momentarily, while Salt committed to a quick single.

The ensuing confusion resulted in a tense confrontation between the two on-field partners, as Salt expressed his frustration at the near-missed opportunity for a wicket. Despite the disagreement, both players refocused and continued their innings, ultimately steering KKR to victory.
