After Shimron Hetmyer's absolute stunner, Sandeep Sharma stepped in to pull off another incredible catch to dismiss Rahmanullah Gurbaz. The Afghan keeper-batter took an aggressive approach and smashed Sharma for two massive sixes in consecutive deliveries.
Then in the immediate next delivery, Rahmanullah Gurbaz tried something similar but failed. Facing Trent Boult, Gurbaz was given a full delivery just outside off to which the Afghan star drove toward the right of mid-off. Eying the ball, Sandeep put in an early sprint and completed a full-length dive with both hands and held onto another incredible catch. With a few expansive shots, Rahmanullah Gurbaz managed to score 18 in 12 balls with one four and two sixes.

The pick of the bowlers in this innings was Yuzvendra Chahal, who picked up four wickets and also became the highest run wicket-taker in IPL history.
Chahal overtook Dwayne Bravo with a tally of 187 wickets. Against Kolkata, Chahal had a brilliant spell of 4-0-25-4 and dismissed big players like Nitish Rana, Venkatesh Iyer, Rinku Singh and Shardul Thakur.
