RR vs RCB: Watch – Rovman Powell pulls off one of the best catches of IPL 2024 to send back Faf du Plessis

With Faf du Plessis being in stunning form in the recent games, Rajasthan Royals needed something special to get rid of the Royal Challengers Bengaluru captain in the ongoing Eliminator of IPL 2024 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

The former South Africa captain came into the game after scoring two half-centuries in his last four games including a 54-run knock in the previous outing against defending champions Chennai Super Kings. The right-handed batsman got the start in the ongoing game as well, as he hit two fours and a six in quick time before Rovman Powell pulled off an absolute blinder to send him back.

The West Indies skipper took one of the best catches of the tournament to give his team a much-needed first breakthrough. On the fourth ball of the fifth over, Trent Boult bowled a short delivery and Faf du Plessis could not really make a good connection with the ball while playing the pull shot.

The ball was still traveling very fast and it looked like it would drop just in front of Rovman Powell at deep mid-wicket. However, the RR star made a full-length dive and caught the ball in the blink of an eye, just inches above the ground. The third umpire checked the catch and adjudged the RCB skipper out. Du Plessis departed after scoring 17 runs.

Watch the stunner from Rovman Powell:


Talking about the game, RCB were on 73 for 2 in the 10th over at the time of writing this report. Cameron Green and Rajat Patidar were batting in the middle for the Bengaluru-based outfit. After du Plessis’ departure, Virat Kohli failed to score big as well and was dismissed for 33.

RCB will be hoping that the in-form duo of Green and Patidar steady the ship and guide them to a winning total. The winner of the ongoing game will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the second qualifier for a place in the final against Kolkata Knight Riders.
