Winning the toss and electing to bat first paid rich dividends for Shubman Gill and his young brigade, as a 67-run opening stand set up a formidable first innings score of 182.

In response, the hosts struggled against the new ball attack of Avesh Khan and Khaleel Ahmed. One standout moment from the second innings was an acrobatic effort by Bishnoi inside the 30-yard circle that left Bennet in despair.

Having already lost a couple of wickets by the third over, Bennet faced Avesh Khan’s length delivery wide outside off-stump on the first ball of the fourth over.

The 20-year-old tried to capitalize on the width, attempting a hard-handed cut towards the square of the wicket on the off-side. However, Bishnoi, positioned at backward point, leaped swiftly to catch the kookaburra firmly, completing an extraordinary catch.

The Rajasthan-based young talent timed his jump perfectly, plucking the ball out of thin air and leaving the batter bemused. The Indian team quickly swarmed around him in celebration, with the Twitterverse attributing his fielding excellence to his IPL coach for the Lucknow Super Giants, Jonty Rhodes.
