Rhodes, renowned for his fielding prowess, lauded Bishnoi’s unwavering commitment to fielding practice. “Someone like Ravi completely exhausts me and never misses a single day of practice. If we’re on the ground, he will take catches every single day. So, he works hard on his bowling, but not so hard on his batting. But when it comes to fielding, he is never sitting in the dug-out and never hiding in the dressing room,” Jinty Rhodes praised in a video shared by IPL on social media platform ‘X’.

Reflecting on his decisive catch, Bishnoi revealed his mindset at the crucial moment. “I didn’t realize anything. I was just reacting to the ball. My momentum was going on side but I decided to go the other side to take the catch. There’s a saying from you, โ€˜If you donโ€™t go, youโ€™ll never know.โ€™ That’s what I did,” the spinner confessed.

Rhodes also highlighted Bishnoi’s calmness under pressure, noting, โ€œYou can have some difficulties when you’re bowling and you have to react like that. The great thing about that catch was that he went backward and gave himself time. Often when you see the ball, go across with hard hands. So seeing that reaction in less than a second was great,โ€ Jonty Rhodes added.
