Sakariya struck first, knocking KKR’s swashbuckling opener Aaron Finch for only three runs. Chetan Sakariya produced a devastating spell against Kolkata Knight Riders in his debut game of the season, returning with statistics of 1/17 in three overs. In the powerplay overs, the left-arm pacer was spot-on as KKR was put on the back foot from the start. Sakariya not only kept the scoring rate low, but he also drew the first blood of the KKR innings, removing swashbuckling opener Aaron Finch for only three runs. Here in this article, we have talked about the Chetan Sakariya celebration in a unique way after dismissing Aaron Finch.

After dismissing Finch, the Delhi Capitals debutant came up with a unique celebration that became a talking point among fans. Sakariya’s first performance was the ‘Black Panther celebration,’ which he repeated throughout IPL 2021. The 24-year-old then went all out with his ‘Dragon Ball Z’ celebrations, impersonating the anime’s main character Goku.

Chetan Sakariya Celebration In A Unique Way.

Sakariya’s unique celebrations quickly became a topic of conversation once the video went viral. Meanwhile, his efforts paid off as the Rishabh Pant-led side won by four wickets, a much-needed victory. DC crossed the line with an over to spare after restricting KKR to 146/9 in their allocated 20 overs.

Meanwhile, despite his outstanding performance, Sakariya is unlikely to be given a long run this season, and Khaleel Ahmed will take his spot in the XI once he is healthy and ready. “We haven’t given it our all (in terms of selecting the best XI).”

The left-arm bowler was signed by Delhi Capitals for 4.2 crores this year after playing all 14 matches for Rajasthan Royals the previous season. Coming into the match, Delhi Capitals were off to a bad start as in-form Umesh Yadav dismissed opener, Prithvi Shaw, for a golden duck in the first ball of the innings.

Harshit Rana, a medium-pacer, removed Mitchell Marsh in the following over, leaving Delhi Capitals at 17/2. Lalit Yadav joined David Warner at the crease, and the two formed a crucial partnership for DC, taking the team’s total above the 50-run barrier in just 6.3 overs.

Warner batted aggressively, while Lalit served as a sheet anchor, and the two reached the 50-run mark together. As DC lost their third wicket for 82, Umesh removed Warner for 42 off 26 balls, breaking the 65-run partnership.

Sunil Narine removed Lalit for 22 in the following over, putting Delhi under pressure at 84/4. As Delhi lost half of their team for 84 runs, Umesh Yadav took his third wicket, the prized scalp of DC leader Rishabh Pant, for 2. Axar Patel and Rovman Powell formed a tiny combination that helped Delhi reach the triple digits. Axar was run out for 24 runs, ending the 29-run partnership.

Powell was joined by Shardul Thakur, who scored an undefeated 33 off 16 balls, smashing three sixes and one four to bring the match to a close in the 19th over. The Delhi Capitals won their fourth game in a row.
