Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders start their campaign in IPL 2021 on Sunday, April 11, at the MA Chidambararm Stadium in Chennai. But one of KKR’s players, Varun Chakravarthy, has already given a glimpse of what to expect.
In an intra-squad practice game, Chakravarthy was bowling to a left-handed teammate of his. The batsman got a leading edge and the ball went back towards Chakravarthy, but to his left. The right-arm bowler somehow managed to throw out his left hand and grab the catch with it.

This was a near-magical moment. One of those catches that just get stuck, this one is bound to please both the leg-spinner and his teammates. If he could replicate such an effort in the actual match, the KKR side would be delighted.
IPL 2021 got underway with a thrilling match between defending champions Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore at Chennai. Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals start their pursuit of the trophy on Saturday with a game in Mumbai.
Sunday would witness KKR and SRH getting into action while on Monday, Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings would feature in their first game of the season.
