Deciding to bowl first turned out to be a wise move for Delhi Capitals as they quickly removed Shubman Gill in just the second over. While Sai Sudharsan and Wriddhiman Saha attempted to establish a solid foundation during the powerplay, Mukesh Kumar snatched the crucial wicket of the Gujarat wicketkeeper.

With David Miller partnering Sudharsan, Gujarat sought to steady the innings, reaching 28/2 after four overs. However, Sudharsan’s exit, courtesy of an outstanding fielding play by Delhi’s Sumit Kumar, disrupted their plans.

In the fifth over’s first delivery, Ishant Sharma bowled a length ball that Sudharshan pushed towards mid-wicket, prompting a quick single.

Responding swiftly, Miller also ran, but Sumit, positioned at mid-wicket, showed exceptional agility as he grabbed the ball and executed a precise underarm throw to dislodge the stumps, catching Sudharsan short of his crease.

The on-field umpire referred the decision to the TV umpire, and the subsequent replay confirmed that the left-hander was indeed short of the crease by a significant margin.

Social media platforms buzzed with praise for Sumit Kumar’s outstanding fielding, drawing comparisons to the legendary Jhonty Rhodes’ efforts on the field.
