Oftentimes, support staff in dugouts have been seen expressing immense joy whenever bowlers provide breakthrough wickets, which can be game-changers in the later stage of the innings. Punjab Kings (PBKS) pacer, Kagiso Rabada produced the crucial wicket of the Gujarat Titans (GT) all-rounder, Rahul Tewatia on Tuesday, which resulted in witnessing a happy Jonty Rhodes at the PBKS dugout.

Rahul Tewatia failed to do much against PBKS

Since the beginning of the game, Punjab Kings (PBKS) were dominating over the table-toppers Gujarat Titans (GT) in Match 48 of IPL 2022 at Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai. They were reeling at 107/4 at the end of 16 overs after Hardik Pandya won the toss and opted to bat, and soon after, the situation went from bad to worse.

GT had hoped to finish things in style, with Rahul Tewatia still in the middle. But Kagiso Rabada, after coming to attack in the 17th over, left no rrom for a late flourish from the southpaw. He bowled a good length delivery angling across, and Tewatia tried to go into the short leg side. But the all-rounder only managed to get a top edge before Sandeep Sharma claimed it at short third man.

PBKS fielding coach Jonty Rhodes enjoyed the dismissal. He was seen jumping at the dugout, and was pointed out like it was a pre-planned for Tewatia.

Here is the video of the dismissal:
