Images of a mystery girl seen in the Brabourne Stadium gallery watching Delhi Capitals’ match against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have gone viral after she caught the attention of the camera crew, even as DC’s Kuldeep Yadav was taking a superb catch off his own bowling to dismiss Umesh Yadav on Sunday evening.
While it was not initially known who the girl — dressed in a white top — was, it was later revealed that she was Aarti Bedi, an actor by profession and a dancer.
Later in the day, she also reportedly posted three stories on her Insta handle where she could be seen showing her support for the Shreyas Iyer-led KKR. She has also reportedly featured in advertisements for renowned brands.
Netizens kept asking the camera crew to shift the attention from the girl to the action taking place on the field.
“Camera wale bhai sahib, thoda inn madam se focus hata kar match bhi dikha do (Please focus on the match),” wrote a fan on Instagram, while another said, “Ek aur crush (one more crush). Love you camera men.”
A fantastic four-wicket haul from left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav combined with left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed taking three wickets helped Delhi Capitals snap their two-match losing streak with a 44-run win over table-toppers KKR on Sunday.
After Delhi posted a gigantic 215/5 in their 20 overs, thanks to fifties from David Warner, Prithvi Shaw and some blazing knocks from captain Rishabh Pant, Axar Patel and Shardul Thakur, Kolkata needed similar knocks from their batters. But barring a 54 from captain Shreyas Iyer, there weren’t many substantial contributions as Kolkata crashed to 171 all out in 19.4 overs.
