Speaking of the cool and poised virtuosos of cricket, Muttiah Muralitharan is certainly one of them who manages to stay calm under immense pressure. On very rare occasions you have seen legends like Murali lose their cool. However, if you’ve seen it happen in IPL, you know that the tournament has reached its much-needed heights.
With 22 needed from the final for the Gujarat Titans, the partnership of Rashid Khan and Rahul Tewatia knocked four sixes off Marco Jansen to send the ship home for the Titans. The bowler is always advised to avoid fuller throws towards the end of the innings as the batters will take the air route.
This is what happened between Muttiah Muralitharan and Marco Jansen
In one such instance, Jansen ended up bowling full to Rashid Khan and the latter smoked all over the coverage area. Breaking the sacred code of not bowling the fuller deliveries in the final overs went up in smoke as the Sunrisers’ dugout looked on in disbelief.
In another rare instance, Muralitharan got up from his couch and was visibly frustrated with Marco Jansen for doing something that was downright off the charts and ended up paying the price.
When it comes to the shorter version of the game, there are a few things you need to follow as a bowler. There is no second way and that is exactly what Marco Jansen missed in the last one. However, players like Muralitharan and Rahul Dravid are considered synonyms of composure in cricket.
When players like these who have ruled the sport with an iron fist lose their cool, you know something is definitely wrong. Twitter rose in unison, citing that the IPL has kissed its desired peak as the most unexpected incidents plague the tournament’s fate.
