Rajasthan Royals all-rounder Ben Stokes pulled off a stunning catch to dismiss Chennai Super Kings middle-order batsman Kedar Jadhav during the IPL clash between the two teams at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium in Jaipur on Thursday.
Standing at the backward point position, Stokes jumped to his left to pluck catch mid-air after Jadhav smashed a wider delivery from Jofra Archer in the sixth over.
After taking the catch, the English cricketer was seen rushing to the third man region in order to celebrate the wicket as the rest of his teammates converged around him.

It was not the only brilliant piece of fielding effort produced by RR during the match. Earlier, Jofra Archer ran Suresh Raina out with a direct hit on to the wickets. Later, Ambati Rayudu was caught brilliantly in the deep by Shreyas Gopal.
Despite the match-winning effort in the field, RR failed to defend the total of 151, with MS Dhoni scoring a 43-ball 58. The thrilling last-ball victory saw CSK winning their sixth game in seven matches.
