Ravi Bishnoi’s breathtaking catch: The spinner from Punjab Kings contributed magnificently on the field at the Narendra Modi Stadium.

During the 21st match of the ongoing 14th season of the Indian Premier League between Punjab Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders in Ahmedabad, Punjab Kings spinner Ravi Bishnoi put on display a breathtaking catch to dismiss Kolkata Knight Riders all-rounder Sunil Narine.

It all had happened on the last delivery of the third over when Narine played a big shot off Punjab pacer Arshdeep Singh only to hit the ball high on the leg-side.

Bishnoi, who was fielding at deep mid-wicket, ran a lot towards his right to eventually time his dive to perfection to grasp the ball just as it was about to touch the ground. Having surprised himself with the quality of the catch, the 20-year old player was ecstatic while running to all parts of the ground.

Coming in to bat at No. 4 in the previous over, Narine didn’t justify his batting number for the second time in a row by scoring 0 (4) in a 124-run chase. Having become the third KKR batsman to get out in the powerplay, Narine’s dismissal had put his team in a spot of bother at the Narendra Modi Stadium.

Earlier, Knight Riders reduced Kings to 123/9 in 20 overs after their captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and opted to bowl. With bowling figures of 4-0-30-3, Prasidh Krishna was the pick of Knight Riders’ bowlers as he dismissed Deepak Hooda (1), Shahrukh Khan (13) and Chris Jordan (30). Apart from Krishna, Narine and Pat Cummins picked a couple of wickets each.
