Rajasthan Royals (RR) faced off against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in a much-anticipated clash in the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) on Tuesday at the Wankhede Stadium. RR have won both their first two games, while RCB has lost one and won one.
RCB skipper Faf du Plessis won the toss and chose to field first. Both the teams went in with the same sides that played in their last respective matches.
David Willey gave RCB the perfect start by clean bowling Yashasvi Jaiswal for 4 runs. A 70-run partnership between Jos Buttler and Devdutt Padikkal stabilized the ship a bit.
Padikkal was looking good on 37 when he mishit a Harshal Patel slower ball outside the off-stump. Virat Kohli backpaddled from mid-off, keeping his eyes on the ball, and took a reverse cup catch which was nothing short of brilliant.
The third umpire wanted to make sure if Kohli was in control of the ball and the ball didn't touch the ground as he fell down and the replays showed that it was a fair catch. Padikkal went back for 37 after hitting 2 fours and 2 sixes, leaving RR 76/2 in 10 overs.
Here are the videos for Kohli’s catch:
