Cruelly, perhaps, but the injury to Kevin Pietersen is the IPL Play of the Day.
The Pune Supergiants needed all the firepower they could muster to chase down The Royal Challengers’ total of 185. It certainly did not help when the iconic, big-hitting Kevin Pietersen went off injured after facing just one ball in the second over; immediately after Faf du Plessis was dismissed by Kane Richardson. Pietersen pulled a muscle as he set off for a run and then turned back. It took the Supergiants to 12-2, when they really needed a good start.
