In match 53 of IPL 2022 which was played at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune, Lucknow captain KL Rahul was sacked for love without playing any ball. This dismissal in cricket is called Diamond Duck. In this match, Kolkata Knight Riders captain Shreyas Iyer won the toss and decided to pitch first.
On the first lap, when KL Rahul was not on strike, Quinton de Kock tried to push for a run but stopped as soon as he took the start, by which time Rahul had left his line. However, the ball fell squarely into the hands of Shreyas Iyer. In such a situation, he made Rahul run away by hitting him directly. After KL Rahul came out on a diamond duck, different kinds of reactions emerged on social media. One user, linking it to Athiya Shetty, wrote: ‘he talked about the diamond ring, not the ‘Diamond Duck’.
