टी20 के प्रारूप में करूण नायर टेस्ट पारी खेलते नज़र आए जिसकी वजह से दिल्ली ज्यादा रन स्कोरबोर्ड पर नहीं डाल पाई। पठान और पांडे ने एक जबर्दस्त साझेदारी तैयार करते हुए केकेआर की जीत को पक्का किया। वहीं ट्विटर ने नायर की खिंचाई और पठान की तारीफ करने का मौका नहीं छोड़ा।
मनीष पांडे (69) और युसूफ पठान (59) की पारी की बदौलत कोलकाता लगातार तीसरी जीत दर्ज करने में कामयाब रहा, केकेआर ने 4 विकेट शेष रहते दिल्ली के 169 रनों के लक्ष्य को हासिल कर लिया। शीर्ष क्रम के विकेट निकाल कर दिल्ली अच्छी स्थिति में थी लेकिन पांडे-पठान की साझेदारी ने दिल्ली की हार को सुनिश्चित कर दिया।

Is this true? I put in on mute, so can't confirm
This year's Extra Innings T20 is more like a Kitty Party. More gossiping than actually discussing cricket #IPL— Shubh AggarWall (@shubh_chintak) April 17, 2017
Karun Nair today
Karun Nair is playing a wonderful innings to reclaim him spot in the Test side.#DDvKKR— Vinayakk (@vinayakkm) April 17, 2017
And the outrage followed
Played the whole over without scoring a run, almost got Rishabh Pant run out and got bowled on the last ball which was a full toss #IPL— Shubh AggarWall (@shubh_chintak) April 17, 2017
How often does a single player ruin a T20 innings. Nair doing the honours today for Delhi. Surprised that Dravid bats him this high #ipl— 5Y (@5ytix) April 17, 2017
He got some praise too
Karun Nair has shown some improvement by playing 27 balls in this innings, much better than test series. #DDvKKR— Abhilash Neelam (@abhilashneelam) April 17, 2017
More Nair stats

Thankfully for DD, they had Pant

Say it as often as you want. This Rishabh Pant is a special batsman. India must take great care in looking after him.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) April 17, 2017
Not sure if Delhi Daredevils or Rahul Dravid Academy of Developing T20 Batsmen— Ramesh (@rmshnt27) April 17, 2017
Of course, that's what Gambhir would say

The Yusuf Pathan paradox
Only Yusuf Pathan can be in touch & out of touch at the same time. LEGEND! #KKR— BOBBEY (@iamsrktheking) April 17, 2017
Not from today, but GOLD!
Q. What is common between Dermi Cool advertisement & Yusuf Pathan?— Smoking Skills (@SmokingSkills_) April 7, 2017
A. They both appears only during summers & disappears after that.
AB de Villiers or Virat Kohli - who will score more runs?
