Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are locking horns with each other in the 49th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at the MCA stadium in Pune. RCB batter, Prabhudessai took a brilliant diving catch while fielding at long-on running forward to dismiss the CSK opener, Rurturaj Gaikwad
Earlier in the game, CSK skipper, MS Dhoni won the toss and decided to bowl first which has become a trend this season so far. While RCB made no change, CSK made one change as Moeen Ali replaced Mitchell Santner. RCB has won five matches in the IPL 2022 so far and they were defending a target of 174 against Chennai Super Kings.
In the first innings, M Theekshana benefitted from the turning track taking three wickets conceding 27 runs. RCB posted a total of 173/8 giving the opposition a decent total to chase. During the chase, CSK’s opening pair of Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway continued their form from the last game and were looking solid.
However, Shahbaz Ahmed broke the partnership just after the powerplay got over. He bowled a short ball on the fourth delivery to Ruturaj. The batter set himself to pull it for a maximum but was beaten by bounce. He failed to time the ball well and it went up in the air towards long-on.
Suyash Prabhudessai was fielding at the position and he ran forward to take a stunner inch from the ground. In the next over of Glenn Maxwell, Robin Uthappa was dismissed as well and Suyash was the again there to take the catch.
Here is the video of the catch from Suyash Prabhudesai:
