In the match between Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals, Trent Boult, the pace bowler for Rajasthan Royals, made an immediate impact by taking a wicket in his very first over.
Boult bowled a well-directed length ball that swung back into the right-handed batsman, Prabhsimran. The young batsman played the ball with caution but ended up chipping it straight back to Boult.
Displaying impressive reflexes, Boult dived to his right and completed a stunning catch in his follow-through. Prabhsimran’s dismissal for just 2 runs left his partner, Shikhar Dhawan, in disbelief.
Boult’s early breakthrough provided a significant advantage for the Rajasthan Royals in the match.
