Rinku Singh has been one of the most exciting fielders around in IPL 2022 and he showed off his catching prowess again versus Mumbai Indians on Monday. It was a top-edge off Ishan Kishan, who was batting on 51 off 43 balls, that almost touched the sky before it landed in Rinku's safe hands.
Mumbai Indans (MI) were in turmoil against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Sunday in Match 56 of the ongoing Indain Premier League (IPL) 2022 at Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai. Chasing 166, they slipped from 83/3 to 102/7. They looked in control at one point, but a three-wicket over by Pat Cummins sent them on the backfoot.
One of Cummins' wicket was Ishan Kishan, who fell after scoring 51 off 43 balls. MI were still in charge before the wicket, reaching 100/4 in 14 overs. Cummins bowled a bouncer on middle stump, which Ishan tried to pull, only to get a top-edge. The ball went high above the sky and Rinku Singh, who was at deep square leg, grabbed safely to provide an important breakthrough.
Following Ishan's dismissal, Cummins removed Daniel Sams and Murugan Ashwin in the same over to help KKR regain control. MI, at the end of 16 overs, were left reeling at 107/7. They needed 59 off 24 balls.
ISHAN IS OUT!
