IPL 2020, KKR vs CSK: MS Dhoni breaks unique IPL record with a sensational catch
New Delhi | Jagran Sports Desk: Chennai Super Kings' skipper MS Dhoni grabbed a stunner behind stumps to send back Kolkata Knight Riders’ Shivam Mavi during game 21 of the Indian Premier League 2020 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium. Incidentally, with this sensational catch, Dhoni surpassed Dinesh Karthik to become the wicket keeper with most catches in IPL history.
The moment occurred in the final over of the innings when CSK bowler Dwayne Bravo managed to induce a thick outside edge from Shivam Mavi’s bat. Dhoni jumped to his right to catch the ball, missed on the first attempt and then dived to catch it clean even though he was not wearing his gloves at that moment.
Sharing the moment, the official twitter handle of Chennai Super Kings wrote, "Thala grabbing that gift gloveless for the birthday boy in summa style! What a catch!”
Chennai Super Kings were brilliant in the fielding tonight. Earlier in the innings, Ravindra Jadeja and Faf du Plessis combined to produce a stunning catch at the deep mid wicket that sent back Kolkata Knight Riders’ Sunil Narine.
Jadeja dived parallel to the ground to his right to grab what would have been a certain four by Sunil Narine. Just when he was about to skid onto the boundary line, he toss the ball to du Plessis, who grabbed it easily and completed the catch.
