Sam Curran, Cameron Green

Sam Curran, on Thursday (May 9), took a brilliant catch to dismiss Cameron Green in the ongoing match between Punjab Kings and Royal Challengers Bengaluru at the Himachal Pradesh Stadium in Dharamshala.

It was the last ball of RCB’s innings with Cameron Green taking on Harshal Patel. The PBKS pacer bowled a slower delivery outside off stump and Green bowled it towards the right of Sam Curran, who was fielding long.

At first it looked like the ball would go past Sam Curran and over the boundary rope. However, the PBKS captain made a surprising effort to not only stop the ball but also catch it before he could even land on the field. He ran to his right and perfectly timed his slide to complete the catch. Green was out for 46 runs off 27 balls.

Talking about the game, RCB ended their innings with a disheartening total of 241 for 7 after being asked to bat first. It is his highest total in IPL away from home. The in-form Virat Kohli once again shone with the bat, smashing 92 runs off just 47 balls. Rajat Patidar also played a crucial hitting 55 runs off just 23 balls.

“For me it was important to maintain the shot rate at all times. If you saw that Faf and I ended up due to lack of rhythm off the field, there was a feeling of two rhythms with the new ball. We thought that anything above 230 would be a good total here. That was the only mentality,” Kohli said after the innings.

The game is a life or death clash for both teams. While the winning team will continue to compete for the playoffs, the losing team will become the second team after Mumbai Indians to be eliminated from IPL 2024. Both teams have four wins and seven losses in 11 games so far and cannot allow yourself more. slips.
