Quite a while back, Saeed Ajmal and Shoaib Malik gave perhaps the most funny crossroads in cricket history in an ODI versus the West Indies. Endeavouring a tremendous hit down the ground, Chris Gayle skied one off the bowling of Umar Gul, and the ball was going in the open space between mid-on and mid-off.
A straightforward call – essential correspondence – would have brought about one of the two defenders taking a basic catch, yet surprisingly and entertainingly, both Shoaib Malik and Saeed Ajmal wound up ball watching, bringing about the ball dropping right in the middle of them.
It has required a couple of years, yet today in Chennai, the RCB team of Siraj and Chahal put forth a valiant effort to honour Malik and Ajmal. In the second ball of the fourteenth over, as Harshal Patel bowled a lovely off-shaper outside off-stump, KKR captain Eoin Morgan endeavoured a revolting Haick, and wound up totally miscuing it.
The ball was going towards the diminutive third-man/in reverse point locale and on the principal look, seemed as though it would be eaten up by one of the two defenders who were combining.
Be that as it may, what occurred next ended up being humiliating for captain Virat Kohli as the two men, Siraj and Chahal, watched the ball drop. The team didn’t speak with one another and were ball-watching, and this brought about the ball amazingly landing bang in the hole, between diminutive third man and in reverse point.
Fortunately for RCB, it wasn’t exorbitant as Harshal Patel had his man two balls later to recover the purple cap.
With another three in a row win, Royal Challengers Bangalore are now on the top of the table with only team doing this in the 14th edition of IPL.

Morgan tried to get out but Chahal & Siraj missed the catch, so on the very next ball he give an easy catch to Kohli.
And people still think that IPL is not scripted LOL 😂#RCBvKKR
