On the sixth delivery of Trent Boult’s first over, Shikhar Dhawan went for a glorious shot to the covers only to find a Hardik Pandya plucking the ball out in thin air. While Pandya was confident about the catch, the third umpire ruled it not out, leaving Mumbai Indians in shock as Dhawan survived.
Great effort but not out

I think it was not out. His fingers seemed to have grabbed it after the ball hitting the ground momentarily. Question: what was the soft signal? Disproving the out signal is easier than disproving the not out signal.
No soft signal
Glad there was no soft signal for Dhawan's catch. Most part of the ball was grassed and top umpiring from Ullas gandhe. Should never be given out. 1 or 2 fingers doesn't matter coz the ball balanced on the ground without any doubt. #MIvsDC— Tamil speaking Indian (@TamilSpeaking) April 20, 2021
