Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) survived Virat Kohli's master chase after Yusuf Pathan pulled off a great catch. The big man, fielding at the short third man, plucked the ball from the air like a mango and sent Kohli back to the dressing room on 39 runs.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) were chasing a target of 147 and they needed skipper Kohli to make the chase easy for them. But things didn't go as per the plan as Pathan had some other idea. Virat had earlier survived a scare when SRH captain Kane Williamson had dropped him off Rashid Khan's bowling.

The effort of Yusuf made his younger brother Irfan Pathan to tweet about him. The cricketer-turned-commentator wrote, “ (Sic) Ye catch tha ya Aam todaa hay?? (Have you taken a catch or plucked a mango?)”

On which, Yusuf replied,  “(Sic) Bachpan m itne aam tode hain humne sath m abtk adat nahi gayi. (We plucked so many mangoes in our childhood together that the habit still remains)”.
