On Friday, Punjab Kings’ (PBKS) Ravi Bishnoi pulled off a stunning catch to end RCB all-rounder Harshal Patel’s cameo (31 runs off 13 balls).
It all happened in the last over of RCB’s chase when Mohammed Shami bowled a low full toss on the stumps. Harshal swung his bat to send the ball out of the park but failed to time his shot to perfection.
Bishnoi ran in from long-off, made a full-stretched dive to complete the spectacular catch.
