Wasim Jaffer wrote a special tweet for Prasidh Krishna’s superb bowling spell against RCB: Prasidh Krishna’s Rajasthan Royals teammates and their social media admin call him “Skiddy” due to the nature of his bowling.
Royal Challengers Bangalore batters learned that first hand when he hurt them badly with his 3/22 bowling tricks – which included wickets from Virat Kohli, Dinesh Karthik and Wanindu Hasaranga – as the lanky speedster used the assist for extra bounce and stitching movement from the pitch.

Former India fly-half Wasim Jaffer posted a special tweet for Krishna’s exploits with the ball in Qualifying 2 in Ahmedabad which put the Royals in a dominant position halfway through the game.
“If you’re a fast bowler playing against RCB and someone asks you what you want, you can’t think of any other answer than ‘Virat’s wicket at the top and DK’s wicket at the death’. Superb bowling tonight from @prasidh43 (clapping emoji),” Wasim Jaffer tweeted.
Here is Wasim Jaffer’s appreciation Tweeter for Prasidh Krishna:

In his first over, the second of the RCB innings, he got the wicket from Virat Kohli. He kicked two runs – both deliveries to the back of the swinging length. So when the next ball went away, and for a short length, Kohli quickly chased it looking to work it towards the third man. But, with the pace of the pitch and the extra bounce Krishna generates due to his size, he took the outside edge of Kohli’s bat and Samson pocketed it safely.
Centurion in the previous game, Patidar met Krishna’s challenge head-on, breaking a few boundaries; Krishna was also unlucky when usually safe receiver Riyan Parag dropped Patidar to the back spot.
Prasidh Krishna completed all three overs on the power play for 1/14. He returned in the 19th plus. With two overs to go, 146/5, and the tournament’s best finisher, Dinesh Karthik, on strike, the RCB had to hope for a late blow.
However, it was not to be today, because of Krishna. On the first ball of the 19th, Karthik was caught wide by Parag after ending his slog on Krishna’s ball well outside the stump. Then Krishna yorked Wanindu Hasaranga by handing Sri Lanka a golden duck.
