The fiery Rajasthan Royals (RR) batter, Shimron Hetmyer created an instant impact in the game in the ongoing game against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by taking a stunning catch at Eden Gardens. Jason Roy was looking good in the middle and it required a special effort from someone to get rid of the England batter. Hetmyer got the opportunity and he grabbed it with both hands, quite literally.

On the second ball of the third over bowled by Trent Boult, Roy decided to play the pull shot on a short-pitched delivery for a six but did not make the connection properly. It went to deep square leg and Shimron Hetmyer reached there in time to take a brilliant running catch, inches away from the ropes.

Here is the video of the catch from Shimron Hetmyer:

It was a night of good catching in IPL 2023 as Sandeep Sharma followed up with another brilliant catch in the game. After being hit for two back-to-back sixes off KKR opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz in the last over, Sandeep took a sweet revenge by getting rid of him, via a catch at mid-off.

Gurbaz was in full flow and wanted to smash Boult off the first ball, over the mid-off region. He hit from the middle part of the bat but could not get the elevation. Sandeep ran some yards quickly and then dived to his right to take a brilliant catch.
