Posted by

New Delhi: Chennai Super Kings (CSK) pacer Matheesha Pathirana enjoyed a field day in his side’s clash against Delhi Capitals (DC) in the IPL 2024 on Sunday. Pathirana pulled off a stunning catch to send David Warner packing before bowling a brilliant spell at the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Vizag.

Playing their first away game of the season, CSK lost the toss and were asked to bowl first. They got off to a horror start with the ball as DC openers Warner and Prithvi Shaw dominated the proceedings to post a 93-run stand for the first wicket. However, a stunning catch from Pathirana turned the momentum in CSK’s favour, handing them a crucial first breakthrough.

Pathirana grabbed a stunner to dismiss Warner on 52 off 35 balls off Mustafizur Rahman’s bowling to help the Bangladesh pacer draw the first blood for CSK before he himself joined the party with the ball. Pathirana bowled a game-changing 15th over where he produced two sensational yorkers to bamboozle Mitchell Marsh and Tristan Stubbs inside just three deliveries.

Pathirana produced a brilliant 150 kph yorker straight on the money on the 4th ball of the 15th over to uproot Marsh’s middle stump. Marsh was looking good having raced to 18, but his stay in the middle was cut short by the CSK pacer, who breathed fire with the ball. Pathirana didn’t stop there as he knocked off Stubbs’ stump on the final delivery of the 15th over with another searing yorker clocked at an impressive 149.50 kph.
