The 47th match of IPL 2022 is underway right now, where the Rajasthan Royals are battling the Kolkata Knight Riders. A rare incident happened in the match, where RR’s fielder Prasidh Krishna hit his own teammate Trent Boult while throwing a ball at the striker’s end.

On the first ball of the Kolkata Knight Riders’ innings’ third over, Boult bowled a length delivery to Baba Indrajith. The batter took two runs, and in an attempt to run the batter out, Krishna threw a ball towards the striker’s end. Unfortunately, the ball could not reach the final target.

Boult was standing in the way. The bowler completed his follow-through and looked at the result of the delivery. He was caught a little off-guard by the throw from Krishna as he lost his balance. Luckily, there was no serious injury to him. Boult got up with a smile and went to bowl the next delivery.

Speaking of the match between KKR and RR, Anukul Roy made his debut for the Kolkata-based franchise and picked up one wicket in the first innings. In an interview with the host broadcasters after the first innings, Roy said:

“Feels good to be wearing the purple of KKR. In the nets, I was bowling with the new ball. I was bowling well so they tried me in the powerplay. In the powerplay I field at point and after the powerplay I field on the fence and in zones where the ball comes more.”
