LSG vs RCB Live: Overzealous fan jumped the fence!

An overzealous fan jumped the fence and entered the field of play during the final over of the match. As he was rushing towards Virat Kohli, the police intercepted him and took him out of the ground. This IPL is taking place in a bio-secure environment and from that perspective, it was a breach. Yesterday, during Qualifier 1 also, a fan had jumped the fence, but quick reaction from the minions of the law ensured that the bubble had a close shave.

Catch missed or runs saved?

Deepak Hooda slapped a Harshal Patel short ball between cover and point. As the ball plunged ground-wards, Wanindu Hasaranga, tearing away from deep point, grabbed the ball. But the velocity of his sprint was so unstoppable that he could not apply the brakes and complete the catch. He would invariably crash onto the advertising cushions. He crash-landed onto the grass and looked pleadingly at his distant colleagues. If only someone was in his vicinity, he could have flung the ball at him and completed a relay catch. The next alternative was to deny the six, which he smartly managed. As he slid, he ensured that the flap of his pants was not touching the cushion (not the age of bell bottoms or boot cut, thankfully). He tried to pause his slide, he was no gymnast, and by the time he saw a fielder’s silhouette, he was too late and hurled the ball in the air. He quickly gathered himself, but the ball had already made its landing. Hasaranga smiled sheepishly, he was still ruing the catch he could not complete. But at least he saved five runs.

Why did Faf du Plessis fall after taking a simple catch of Quinton de Kock? 

It was a simple catch offered by Quinton de Kock at but Faf du Plessis took the dolly as he ran to his left at mid-on and fell down to the ground. Did he stumble? Nope. It’s a theory he has been propagating for a while now. He believes that fall helps break the movement more effectively so that the ball doesn’t snap out of the palms. That’s why du Plessis keeps going down whenever he takes a catch in the outfield, even for regulation skiers. 

I have built this ability into my catching style that at point of impact I am super still but almost fall to the ground or dive to the ground because it makes me more stiller! It doesn’t make sense how are you still when you are diving but for me my head is dead still; my body might be moving but my head is super still,” he told T20Stars podcast. 

“90% percent  of the catches I take you will see me, if possible, falling or diving down. It makes me feel like everything is moving less, than when you are moving your feet and eyes are bouncing down when you are running.”

Collision course!

Mahipal Lomror slid in near the boundary rope to abort a gorgeously- timed flick essayed by KL Rahul. But just when he shoved the ball with his palms, Harshal Patel, skidding through the grass, crashed onto him and the ball rebounded off Patel's body. Patel too, was in a desperate pursuit to stop the ball from reaching the ropes. But he hadn't spotted Lomror’s sprint, and instead hurt his right shoulder,in the impact of the collision. The chain of comedy didn't end there, Lomror sprawled back to his feet and just about prevented the ball from brushing the ropes. But as he picked up the ball, it slipped out of his, but just beforeit trickled to the boundary, he gathered it again, before the ball tumbled out of his (sweaty/greasy) palms again. Finally, in his fourth attempt, he managed to collect the ball cleanly and fire in a flat throw at the bowler’s end. And for all the clumsiness, he saved a single too.
