Punjab Kings (PBKS) debutant Jitesh Sharma showed brilliant glovework behind the stumps in the game against Chennai Super Kings. He took a sharp catch of MS Dhoni and then convinced PBKS skipper, Mayank Agarwal to take a successful review which converted the wide into Dhoni’s wicket. After losing their first two matches of the IPL 2022, Chennai Super Kings have continued their poor run of form in the tournament.

The team lost by a significant margin of 54 runs while chasing 181 runs. Liam Livingstone was instrumental for Punjab Kings as he helped his team post a total of 180/8 scoring 60 runs from 32 balls. CSK suffered a batting collapse as the wickets were falling at regular intervals. MS Dhoni was attempting to take the game deep but brilliant judgment from debutant Jitesh Sharma sent him back to the pavilion.

Rahul Chahar was bowling the 18th over of the CSK innings. He bowled a delivery straying down the leg to Dhoni and the latter tried to hit it. Jitesh Sharma appealed for the caught behind and he was pretty confident but the umpire called it a wide. Jitesh then convinced skipper, Mayank Agarwal to take a review. The replays showed spikes as the ball passed near the edge of the bat and the wide called by the umpire was converted into a wicket.

Here is the video of the catch from Jitesh Sharma:
