WATCH : Flying Rovman grabs tracer bullet to dispatch skipper Faf


Royal Challengers Bengaluru set their sights on extending their winning streak beyond six as they entered a must-win Eliminator at Ahmedabad against the struggling Rajasthan Royals.

Opting to bat first, RCB faced a challenge from Trent Boult’s disciplined bowling, which consistently impeded their progress. However, it was a moment of brilliance from a teammate that proved decisive in the fifth over.

As Boult delivered a short ball aimed at the Proteas’ captain, Faf du Plessis, the batsman attempted to break free with an explosive pull shot. The ball rocketed towards deep mid-wicket with considerable pace, seemingly destined for the boundary.

Rovman Powell, stationed nearby, made a remarkable move. Despite the ball’s velocity, Powell lunged forward, extending his hands beyond his body’s reach, and snatched the ball cleanly in one fluid motion, completing a stunning catch.

The Rajasthan Royals erupted in jubilation at claiming such a crucial wicket, a sentiment echoed by fans on Twitter, who hailed Powell’s exceptional catch with glowing praise.
