Watch: DC’s Fraser-McGurk’s Lightning Throw Stuns LSG’s Bishnoi in IPL Drama

In a nail-biting encounter between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in IPL 2024, DC youngster Jake Fraser-McGurk stole the show with a sensational direct hit that ran out Ravi Bishnoi at a crucial juncture of the match. The incident occurred in the dying moments of the game at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Tuesday, May 14.

LSG, chasing a daunting target of 209 runs, seemed to be faltering in their pursuit. After the dismissal of Nicholas Pooran in the 12th over, the task appeared nearly insurmountable with only half of the target remaining. However, Arshad Khan’s resilient fifty provided a glimmer of hope for LSG, with Yudhvir Singh Charak offering support at the other end.

As the required run rate climbed, LSG’s hopes rested largely on Arshad Khan’s shoulders. But the pressure proved too much, leading to Yudhvir Singh’s dismissal, further limiting Khan’s chances to orchestrate a miraculous victory.

With DC tightening their grip on the game, Mukesh Kumar delivered a crucial over, conceding just a couple of runs off the first two balls. Despite Khan’s attempt to find the boundary, he managed only a single to deep midwicket. Desperate to retain strike, Khan pushed for a risky second run, only to fall short as Fraser-McGurk unleashed a pinpoint throw from deep, catching Bishnoi short of his crease.

Fraser-McGurk’s heroics with the ball came after a disappointing outing with the bat, where he was dismissed for a duck. Additionally, he had dropped a straightforward catch earlier in the match, granting Yudhvir Singh a lifeline.

In the end, Fraser-McGurk’s remarkable fielding effort proved to be the turning point, sealing DC’s victory and leaving LSG agonizingly short of their target.
