New Delhi | Jagran Sports Desk: Mumbai Indians’ Suryakumar Yadav took a stunning catch at the backward point to send back Kolkata Knight Riders’ opener Rahul Tripathi in the third over of the game 32 of the Indian Premier League 2020 on Friday. 

Tripathi middled the slash off Trend Boult’s delivery but an alert Yadav dived to perfection and grabbed the ball with both hands nonchalantly. The moment was shared by the official Twitter handle of Mumbai Indians.

Yadav's catch gave Mumbai Indians an early breakthrough against Kolkata. The latter could not recover from the poor start and lost their first five batsmen for just 61. Eoin Morgan and Pat Cummins, however, steadied the innings and the team managed to put up a respectable total of 148 at the end of 20th over. Cummins played a fiery knock of 53 off just 36 balls, which included two sixes and five fours. He was assisted by Morgan, who was playing his first match for Kolkata Knight Riders. 

Chasing a total, Mumbai Indians got off to an excellent start, with opening batsmen Rohit Sharma and de Kock bringing up team’s fifty inside the powerplay itself. Sharma was dismissed by Shivam Mavi for 35 in the 11th over of the match, though Mumbai was well on its course to an emphatic win by then. A flurry of boundaries by de Kock and Hardik Pandya finished the game in the 17th over of the match.
