Twitter was ablaze with memes, jokes and reactions after Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) all-rounder Deepak Hooda got run-out while batting alongside Krunal Pandya against Punjab Kings (PBKS) in Match 42 of the IPL 2022 at MCA Stadium, Pune on Friday (April 29).
The run-out took place in the 14th over of LSG’s innings. Krunal pulled Arshdeep Singh to deep square leg and there was an easy two for the taking. However, Hooda paid the price for his negligence as he was taking it easy and a direct hit from Bairstow at the bowler's end found him short of the crease.
Deepak Hooda’s run-out on 34 led to funny reactions from the netizens. Notably, Hooda and Krunal Pandya were involved in an ugly spat last year during the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, following which the former stepped out of the Baroda bio-bubble and he is now part of Rajasthan's domestic cricket team.
Incidentally, both the players were roped in by Lucknow Super Giants at the IPL 2022 mega-auction in February.
Here are the reactions:
