IPL 2022: Kuldeep Yadav took a brilliant catch to send Umesh Yadav packing.© BCCI/IPL
Kuldeep Yadav displayed a performance that was one for the ages as he returned with figures of 4-35 in his quota of four overs and this helped Delhi Capitals defeat Kolkata Knight Riders by 44 runs in the 19th game of IPL 2022 season at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. Kuldeep dismissed Shreyas Iyer, Pat Cummins, Sunil Narine and Umesh Yadav and this spell broke the back of KKR’s innings and they fell 44-run short in the chase of 216. Apart from this spell, Kuldeep took a stunning caught and bowled to dismiss Umesh — one of the best efforts in the history of the cash-rich league.
In the 16th over of the KKR innings, Kuldeep bowled a flighted delivery and Umesh tried to smash out of the ground but only managed to get a top-edge. The ball ballooned up and Kuldeep ran a fair distance before putting in a dive to complete a sensational catch.
