WATCH : Kishan competing for India’s World Cup spot with jaw-dropping catch


Forced to bat first in PBKS’s new home ground, MI’s top three batters scored 54 runs within the powerplay. Suryakumar Yadav and Rohit Sharma then anchored the innings, setting up the lower middle order to push the total to 192 runs in 20 overs.

Chasing the formidable target, acknowledged as above par by Surya himself in the post-match ceremony, the visiting team faced an early setback when Kishan took a stunning catch to dismiss Prabhsimran for a golden duck.

In the first over’s third ball, Gerald Coetzee delivered a back-of-a-length ball angled towards the leg stump. Attempting a flick, the right-hander got an inside edge towards the left of the wicketkeeper.

Kishan, diving to his left, made a full-stretch effort to grasp the ball, showcasing remarkable agility. His composed catch prompted discussions on his potential inclusion in the T20 World Cup squad for the USA and West Indies among fans on Twitter.
