Bad news for KKR as Rahul Tripathi gets injured, leaves the field midway in the finale
Kolkata Knight Riders were handed a huge blow during the IPL finale against Chennai Super Kings as Rahul Tripathi got injured and left the field midway during the ongoing match.
The incident took place on the first delivery of the seventh over of CSK innings, when Tripathi came running from the deep to prevent Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis from stealing a double.
However, he failed to hold onto the ball and it hit his ankles. Soon after the incident, he was attended by team physio.
There was no official word on his injury. Kamlesh Nagarkoti took the field in place of Rahul Tripathi.
Meanwhile, after being invited to bat first, CSK scored 192/3 in 20 overs. Faf du Plessis scored 86 runs off 59 balls.
