The ongoing match between Rajasthan Royals and Gujarat Titans has been nothing short of dramatic, with the first wicket taken by Rajasthan Royals being a prime example of the intensity of the game. After opting to bowl first, Rajasthan Royals made an early breakthrough as Gujarat Titans’ keeper, Wriddhiman Saha, departed for just four runs.
The wicket was taken by Trent Boult, who has been in exceptional form this season. Boult bowled a length delivery that swung in on middle and leg, causing Saha to close his bat-face early and get a fat leading edge. The ball went a mile up in the air, giving three fielders – point, keeper, and mid-wicket – the opportunity to take the catch.
What followed was a scene of chaos and confusion as all three fielders converged on the ball, with the keeper calling for it. Unfortunately, a collision between the two fielders meant that Sanju Samson failed to gather the ball.
However, fortune favored Boult as the ball popped up and went straight into his hands. The entire sequence was nothing short of dramatic, with fans of both teams holding their breath until the catch was finally taken.
