There are certain moments of brilliance on the sporting field which make fans go wow even if it is against their favourite side and team. Perhaps a similar moment for some happened during the match between Rajasthan Royals and Lucknow Super Giants. While the Rajasthan pacers had blown away the Lucknow Super Giants’ top order after the Men in Pink had opted to bat first and posted 178/6, the Lucknow middle order was fighting hard to keep the team alive.

However, an excellent fielding effort helped Rajasthan get rid of Krunal Pandya who could have been dangerous had he batted deep. In the first ball of the 14th over which was bowled by R Ashwin, Krunal opted to come down the wicket and hit it straight. However, the ball did not get much elevation and only got to a few metres to the right of long-on where Jos Buttler was positioned.

Not only did Buttler manage to reach the ball but as he realised the momentum was taking him over the ropes, he threw it to his partner Riyan Parag who was at long-off. Parag too managed to stretch up and take that catch forcing Krunal to take the walk back to the pavilion. The entire turn of events was checked by the third umpire but they found it good enough to deem it out.

Here is the catch:
