In game 22 of IPL 2023, MI is hosting KKR and looking to add to the points they recently accumulated. On the other hand, after losing a high-scoring game against SRH, KKR is eager to get back on track. The effectiveness of their core retained players is a shared denominator, though. …or the absence of it. The pressure will be on Suryakumar Yadav and Andre Russell in the sweltering Mumbai heat since they have not yet lived up to their T20 power-hitting reputations.
KKR got off to a good start thanks to Venkatesh Iyer’s power-hitting innings. However, there was an incident in the game involving the KKR captain Nitish and Rana and Mumbai Indians’ bowler Hrithik Shaukeen.
Heated exchange of words between Nitish Rana and Hrithik Shokeen during the MI vs KKR game at the Wankhede Stadium
Hrithik Shokeen and Rana had a brief altercation! Nitish Rana stepped out to hit the spinner out of the ground, but he absolutely bungled his shot. Gains a lot of altitude but not much ground. Ramandeep Singh, far out in the deep, squatted down beneath the skier and made a secure grab. Nitish Rana managed to score 5 runs off 10 balls. The altercation between the two players was the moment that got social media talking. Nitish Rana was simply not happy with the way Hrithik Shokeen tried to have a go at him. However, the fans are still trying to find out exactly what Shokeen said.
