IPL 2024 | How M Sidharth fulfilled Langer promise with Virat Kohli wicket in LSG vs RCB

Justin Langer revealed how M Siddharth fulfilled his promise during the RCB vs LSG and delivered the wicket of Virat Kohli during the match in the Chinnaswamy stadium on April 2, Tuesday. Kohli was the first wicket to fall during RCB’s chase of 182 on Tuesday, with the left-arm spinner getting the breakthrough. This would change the whole course of the game and turn the tide in LSG’s favour.

Following a fiery spell from Mayank Yadav, LSG ended up winning the match by 28 runs to make it two wins out of two and get their season on track. In a video released by LSG after the game, Langer was seen talking to the team and how his conversation with the left-arm bowler went. The LSG coach said he had never spoken to Siddhaarth before and after seeing him bowl an arm-ball in practice, asked if he could get the wicket of Kohli.

Langer mimicked how Siddharth nodded his head as the whole dressing room laughed and cheered.

“The first thing that comes out of my mouth, to M Siddharth. Never spoken to him before, I saw him bowl an arm ball, and I said ‘Hey Sid, you reckon you can get Virat for us? He goes ‘yes sir,'” said Langer.

What did Siddharth say about picking Kohli’s wicket?

Siddharth said that he had always dreamed of taking the wicket of Kohli and called it the biggest scalp any bowler can get. The LSG spinner said he was very happy and wanted to keep things simple.

“I had always dreamed of taking his wicket. You can ask anyone. It’s the biggest wicket you can ever take. I’m really happy. I just wanted to keep it simple. I backed my strengths and I knew if I could hit the correct lengths, I could do well for the team,” said Siddharth.

Siddharth ended up with figures of 1 for 21 in his 3 overs. LSG will now face GT at the Ekana stadium on April 7.
