WATCH : ‘The Shikhar Redemption’ grabbing stunner post DRS confusion


Winning the toss, the Punjab Kings elected to field first at their new home venue in Mullanpur for the second game. With two left-handers opening the batting for Sunrisers Hyderabad, captain Dhawan opted for the right-arm pacer Kagiso Rabada.

Although there was a potential chance of dismissal on the first ball, it went unnoticed until a brilliant catch redeemed the moment for Dhawan.

On the initial delivery, Kagiso Rabada approached Travis Head from over the wicket, delivering a back-of-a-length ball that moved away from the left-hander.

The ball kissed the outside edge of Head’s bat, but the dismissal was not confirmed as the umpire and captain Dhawan decided against a review. However, moments later, the ultra edge revealed a faint nick, offering a lifeline to Head.

Just as Head seemed to be settling in after the scare, Arshdeep bowled a length delivery that seamed around the off-stump line in the fourth over. Attempting to slog it over mid-off, Head failed to time the shot properly.

The ball skewed over the inner circle, prompting Dhawan to sprint backward from mid-off and execute a spectacular catch under the night sky.
