The IPL 2022 Eliminator clash has witnessed action-paced cricket & memorable cricketing moments which turned the match into a nail-biting thriller. Rajat Patidar’s superb century, Dinesh Karthik’s crucial boundaries in the death overs, KL Rahul and Deepak Hooda’s spirited chase, and Harshal Patel’s excellence in the death overs, all made for a perfect entertaining package for cric-lovers. But one stand-out incident which turned the Eliminator clash memorable for fans is the pitch invasion & Virat’s reaction after it.
When LSG needed 24 runs in the final over and Sri Lankan paceman Dushmantha Chameera hit Harshal’s third delivery of the 20th over of the innings to keep his team in the chase. Just as Harshal loaded for the next delivery and reached the top of his bowling run-up, the match was halted for a few moments as a pitch invader came onto the hallowed turf of the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Though the broadcast cameras stayed off the invader ensuring that it doesn’t seem a part of the match coverage, a few fans seated in the section of the stadium closest to the area where the invader came on the pitch, managed to take videos of the pitch invader & how police carried him off the crease on his shoulder.

Virat Kohli who was fielding close to the area where the pitch invasion took place got amazed by the events that happened in front of him and gave an epic reaction, which the fans managed to capture in the video.
The match resumed after the halt & after much drama RCB managed to clinch the clash by 14 runs to march proudly into the Qualifier 2 where they will face Rajasthan Royals. And with this humiliating defeat, LSG’s journey in the IPL 2022 came to an end.
