Yesterday, Mumbai Indians has posted a five-wicket victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore. There was a strange incident happened during the 18th over of Mumbai Indians innings at the Wankhede. Aniket Choudhary was bowling the crucial over and the Mumbai Indians needed 25 runs off 13 balls.
Before Ankit has bowled his last delivery, he walked up to AB de Villiers for advice. On the other hand, Captain Virat Kohli shouted out instructions to Ankit after his talk with De Villiers.
Ankit bowled a short ball and Pandya smashed it for a six. As per reported by Hindustan Times, after the match, Ankit said: “In the last training session, I was practicing with AB and he said I was bowling well. In this match also, he was backing me from the first ball. As far as the last ball was concerned, I was wondering whether to bowl (Hardik) the slower one or a fast one. Maybe it was a match-changing point. So I asked him (AB) ‘what should I bowl?’
“He said ‘maybe he’s ready for the slower one, you should go with the hard length.’ When someone as great as AB tells you to do something, it’s hard to go against it. Virat wasn’t happy with what I bowled. He thought I did the wrong thing and should have bowled full and slow.”
