In a crucial match of the UAE edition of the Indian Premier League, Rajasthan Royals lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore by 7 wickets. After the poor performance of the middle order, the bowlers of the team also could not show anything special. Against RCB, Mustafizur Rahman was the only bowler who troubled the batsmen fiercely and took 2 wickets in 3 overs. But, he is making a lot of headlines not because of his bowling, but because of his amazing fielding done on the field. Mustafizur showed such an effort on the field, seeing that everyone was forced to press his finger under his teeth.
Actually, in the 9th over of RCB’s innings, Glenn Maxwell played a strong pull shot off Karthik Tyagi. As soon as Maxwell shot it looked like the ball would go for a six, but Mustafizur Rahman, fielding there, showed great agility and jumped in the air, caught the ball and threw it outside. Mustafizur could not take the catch, but he converted the six into just one run with his tremendous fielding. The commentator also praised this Rajasthan bowler for his fielding effort. Its video is becoming quite viral on social media.
After losing the toss, opting to bat first, the Rajasthan Royals team scored 149 runs in 20 overs for the loss of 9 wickets due to the strong innings of 58 runs by Evin Lewis. In reply, RCB chased down the target of 150 runs in just 17.1 overs, thanks to 44 from Srikar Bharat and an unbeaten half-century from Glenn Maxwell. In the bowling, Harshal Patel once again took three wickets in one over for Bangalore, while Yuzvendra Chahal took the wickets of Mahipal Lomror and Liam Livingstone for just 18 runs in four overs.
