Taking a catch near the boundary line is one of the toughest things in cricket but the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) fast bowler, Mohammed Siraj made it look very easy by grabbing a catch during the ongoing match against Mumbai Indians (MI). Siraj took an absolutely unbelievable catch at the third man as Ishan Kishan tried to ramp shot behind the wickets using the pace of Akash Deep.
After losing their first three games of the tournament, MI witnessed a forgettable start against RCB. The team was asked by RCB to bat first as the latter won the toss. Batting first, Mumbai Indians started well as Rohit Sharma was looking in fine touch. However, he was dismissed on a team total of 50 runs and they suffered a batting collapse after that. Ishan Kishan is one of the key batters for MI in this season so far but the brilliant catch from Mohammed Siraj sent him packing.
Akash Deep was bowling 10th over of the innings and he bowled the second delivery short of a length. Kishan tried to use the pace of the bowler and lofted it behind the keeper. The shot was played aerially and Mohammed Siraj, who was fielding at third man ran across to his right. He grabbed a superb catch near the ropes and avoided contact with the boundary line.
