Despite losing Quinton de Kock early, Mumbai were cruising as they had piled up 59 runs in the powerplay with the help of clinical batting from Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan. It looked like Mumbai were on their way to score over 200 runs and Rajasthan bowler apart from Jofra Archer, who took the wicket de Kock were struggling to stop the onslaught.
However, in the 11th over, Kartik Tyagi opened up the match for Rajasthan by dismissing Kishan with the help of a stunning catch from Archer at the boundary. Having already played 2 dots after Suryakumar gave the strike to Kishan on the first ball, the Jharkhand batsman tried to slice the fourth delivery from Tyagi, but unable to clear Archer at the third man boundary.
As the ball was travelling quickly and Archer didn’t have the time to position himself into a good position, he took the catch one-handed diving backwards leaving the bowler and fellow teammate Riyan Parag absolutely shocked by the effort. It reminded everyone, every one of one certain, Kieron Pollard who has a habit of plucking such takes.
