IPL 2019: Shreyas Iyer in a hurry at toss, Sanjay Manjrekar stops him

first_imgDelhi Capitals are playing their first knockout match in Indian Premier League since 2012. They had been perennial underachievers in the Twenty20 league but have turned it around in IPL 2019 with some fine performances.It’s only obvious that Delhi Capitals were eager to get going in their Eliminator match against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Visakhapatnam on Thursday.IPL 2019 Eliminator, DC vs SRH: Live cricket scoreCaptain Shreyas Iyer was eager so much so that he straightaway went ahead and flipped the coin even before the formalities were completed by television broadcasters at the toss at the YS Rajashekara Reddy ACA-VCDA Stadium.Sanjay Manjrekar, who was hosting the toss, had to intervene. Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson also stepped in and caught the coin before it fell on the ground.”Hang on… let me do the rituals. Very eager to kick-off,” Sanjay Manjrekar told Shreyas Iyer.Skipper Iyer eager to get things started here in Vizag pic.twitter.com/2EwJGEuFLh IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) May 8, 2019Manjrekar also checked with the match referee whether the coin flip was invalid before proceeding with the pre-toss formalities.Eventually, Shreyas Iyer won the toss and Delhi Capitals opted to field on what seems to be a slow and dry wicket in Visakhapatnam which is hosting its first match of IPL 2019.Shreyas Iyer conceded that the Delhi Capitals players were nervous in the lead up to the big match in Visakhapatnam but maintained that the team believes nervousness brings the best out of them.”We are going to treat it as another game. But it is a playoff and the players are nervous. It is good to be nervous because it gets the best out of yourself. I believe everyone was enthusiastic in practise yesterday to come and perform, you saw that with how eager I was to flip the coin,” Iyer said at the toss.advertisementDelhi Capitals made only one change, replacing Colin Ingram with aggressive New Zealand opener Colin Munro.On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad who have lost four of their last five matches dropped out-of-form Yusuf Pathan to include young all-rounder Deepak Hooda.”Obviously couple of players have left us, but at the end of the day the team has been playing some good cricket, just not quite getting across the line. So important for us to make that step up today,” Kane Williamson said.The winner of Eliminator on Wednesday will take on three-time champions Chennai Super Kings in the Qualifier 2 on Friday at Visakhapatnam. Mumbai Indians stormed into the final after beating CSK by six wickets in the Qualifier 1 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Tuesday.Also Read | Women’s T20 Challenge: Danielle Wyatt, Shafali Verma help Velocity beat TrailblazersAlso Read | Mumbai Indians’ enviable record in IPL finals: 3 wins, 1 loss out of 4 finalsAlso See:last_img read more
