Since its advent, the Indian Premier League (IPL) has seen batsmen losing their wickets in the most bizarre way possible. Rajasthan Royals’ Ish Sodhi is the latest man in the list of most unlucky dismissal in IPL history. The incident happened during Rajasthan Royals clash against Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens, Kolkata on Wednesday when the New Zealander tried to play a yorker off Kolkata Knight Riders’ Prasidh Krishna.

The umpires spoke to each other and referred the decision to the third umpire. The replays showed that the inside edge went straight into the boots and the decision went in Kolkata Knight Riders’ favour.
