During the 17th match of the 11th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals at Pune, Rajasthan Royal’s K Gowtham took a brilliant catch to dismiss Suresh Raina. Gowtham’s effort provided his team with a much-needed wicket.

After being put in to bat by Ajinkya Rahane, Chennai Super Kings got to a great start. Despite losing Ambati Rayudu (12) in the fifth over, the Super Kings scored 69-1 in the powerplay.

Shane Watson and Suresh Raina continued with brisk run scoring post the powerplay. Watson per se was severe on the opposition bowlers. The 81-run partnership was finally brought to a halt after the youngster dived in front to make sure that Raina walks back to the pavilion.

It happened on the penultimate delivery of the 12th over when Raina slogged swept a Shreyas Gopal delivery towards the deep midwicket area. Gowtham, who first mis-judged the ball and stepped backwards, put in a sensational effort at the end to affect the dismissal. Raina ended up scoring 46 (29) with the help of nine fours.
