During the match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals on Wednesday in Dubai, RR's Mustafizur Rahman made a ridiculous effort on the boundary line, as he lobbed back the ball back into the field to save a certain six. The Bangladesh pacer also scalped two wickets in the game.
Mustafizur Rahman made a brilliant effort at the fine leg boundary as he lobbed back a ball that was sailing over the fence. RCB's Glenn Maxwell tried to pull a delivery off Kartik Tyagi and it looked headed for a six, but the RR pacer jumped to perfection and saved five runs for his team.
The Rajasthan Royals were restricted 149/9 after a disciplined bowling performance from the RCB bowlers in the middle overs. The Shahbaz Ahmed and Yuzvendra Chahal clinched two wickets each and played a crucial role in troubling the RR batsmen from scoring quick runs. In reply to RR's 149, Bangalore openers Devdutt Padikkal (22) and Virat Kohli partnered for a 48-run partnership before the latter in the 6th over. Later, Virat Kohli (25) was dismissed courtesy of a fielding brilliance from Riyan Parag.
Glenn Maxwell (50*) and KS Bharat (44), however, secured a seven-wicket win for RCB.
One of the best saves ever in IPL history!
Ridiculous from Fizz!
What a save by Mustafizur Rahman, it was going for a six, but he did excellently well to restrict the ball going over. pic.twitter.com/eUxDcQAAmH— Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) September 29, 2021

What a player he is!
Moment to remember!
Neither of them catches, both technically drops I suppose and one went for four, but that is two exceptionally athletic bits of work from Jaiswal and Mustafizur at long leg. The boundary fielding been seriously good tonight.#RRvRCB🏏💗🔴#IPL2021— Nakul Pande (@NakulMPande) September 29, 2021
