“I thought in real-time that the Tripathi catch was out. But when you slow it down, the third umpire decides otherwise. We got on with it once he made his call,” Morgan said after the game.,pkl 8
Rahul was then dismissed in the final over of the match by Venkatesh Iyer but not before he had all but sealed the fate of the match. Rahul's 67 off 55 and Shahrukh Khan's 22 off 9 saw PBKS emerge triumphant in the chase of 166 runs with 3 balls to spare.,astro card
