Apart from Rising Pune Supergiant thumping Royal Challengers Bangalore by 27 runs on their home ground, this match will also be remembered for the top quality fielding that is witnessed. From Virat Kohli’s catch at covers to MS Dhoni’s stumping to Ben Stokes’ effort at the boundary, all were glimpses worth watching again and again.
Let us admit that the standard of fielding has not been the best in this season of the Indian Premier League. Fielders have dropped and fumbled the most easiest of chances both in terms of catching and leaking runs. But today was a different night. It certainly was!
Exclusive videos have been shared for various efforts that took place on the field today. So this happened on the fourth delivery of the 18th over. Stuart Binny sent a Shardul Thakur delivery high into the night skies. Fielding at long-on, Stokes put a valiant effort to catch the ball which was perhaps going for a maximum. He let go of the ball on to the ground citing his balance which would have taken the ball to the other send of the boundary ropes. He might have not completed a catch but definitely saved five runs for his team.
