Mumbai Indians (MI) are facing Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the 32nd match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 in Abu Dhabi.
Opting to bat first, KKR got off to a disastrous start as they lost half of their side for just 61 runs. While Mumbai bowlers were firing on all cylinders, fielders were ably supporting them.
One great piece of fielding was witnessed when Suryakumar Yadav plucked a stunner at point to get rid of Rahul Tripathi for 7.
During the third over of KKR’s innings, Trent Boult provided plenty of room for Tripathi to open his arms and the latter went for a fierce cut shot. The ball was in the air and to the left of point but Suryakumar threw himself across, grabbed it nonchalantly with both hands.
Here’s the video:
Suryakumar Yadav’s brilliance on the field also left Trent Boult in awe.
Here’s Boult’s reaction:
Coming to the match, KKR eventually posted 148/5 in 20 overs on the back of Pat Cummins’ unbeaten 36-ball 53 and new skipper Eoin Morgan’s 39 not out off 29 balls.
For MI, Rahul Chahar (2-18) and Jasprit Bumrah (1-22) were the stand-out bowlers.
