Rajasthan Royals (RR) are locking horns with Mumbai Indians (MI) in the 10th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai. After winning the toss, the MI skipper, Rohit Sharma asked RR to bat first as it has been a pattern in the tournament as none of the captains have opted to bat first. In the second innings, the RR pacer, Navdeep Saini took an outstanding catch near the boundary rope to send back Ishan Kishan.
On the last ball of the 13th over, Navdeep Saini took a catch at the boundary line but he had taken a blow to his head/back of the neck while completing the catch. Trent Boult was brought back for the wicket and he delivered as he delivered a length ball angling in, and Kishan went for the pull.
However, Isan Kishan couldn’t really get the connection with Boult cramping him. Saini at deep backward square leg takes a catch, but tumbles over while completing it, and ends up having an awkward fall where his body weight went onto his neck for a brief moment. Earlier in the game, RR set a daunting target of 194 runs for MI owing to a brilliant century from Jos Buttler and useful contributions from Sanju Samson and Shimron Hetmyer.
Here is the video of the brilliant catch from Navdeep Saini:
