The drama continued in the next over as well when MS Dhoni missed a opportunity to stump Suryakumar Yadav in just the 2nd ball of the 2nd over. Few balls later, a miss communication between Ravindra Jadeja and Dwaine Pretorius led to a dropped catch of Dewald Brevis, who was then dismissed in the very next over by Mukesh Choudhary.
However, this was still not the end as then Dwayne Bravo dropped Tilak Verma’s catch at slip and went on for four. Twitter have reacted to the frantic start of the ‘El Clasico’ is cricket.
