Fairplay! KKR's Suryakumar Yadav signals six after nearly taking a sensational catch – Watch Video
Suresh Raina orchestrated Gujarat Lions chase with a 46-ball 84.
New Delhi: Kolkata Knight Riders might have failed in their bid to climb to top of IPL standings after suffering a defeat to the hands of Gujarat Lions on Friday, but Suryakumar Yadav's decent piece of work on the boundary rope, followed by laudable sportsmanship won the hearts of many in the stadium and those watching all across the world.
The KKR fielder took the catch right in front of the boundary after Ravindra Jadeja had dislodged one off Sunil Naraine delivery, but as he was getting balance with the momentum, he threw the ball in the air, and came back out and completes the catch.
But realising the catch wasn't clean enough to be given out, Yadav himself signaled the umpire that it is a six. Replays showed that he had in fact stepped on the boundary rope with ball in his hand.
Here's how the incident unfolded:-
