Today’s match is between Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals. Punjab won the toss and elected to bowl first.
Rajasthan Royals didn’t show a very good performance as they managed to score just 152 runs, thereby giving an easy target to Punjab.
However, the most interesting part of the match was Ben Stokes’ wicket. Mayank Agarwal and Manoj Tiwary showed a wonderful team effort to take the catch. It was the 13th over where Mujeeb was bowling to Stokes.
Stokes tried hitting the boundary, but Mayank who was standing there grabbed the ball. He was about to lose balance, which is why he immediately passed the ball to Manoj Tiwary who caught it. Even Stokes couldn’t believe that he was out.
Even Twitter reacted;

Presence of mind!
100 for 4. Ben stokes out on a beautiful catch at boundary line. Example of nice fielding with presence of mind.
