Comical scenes as Rajasthan Royals’ fielders create confusion during GT vs RR match
The top edge shot of Wridhiman Saha was airborne when 4 Rajasthan Fielders gathered to take the catch. The ball took a lot of time before landing which gave time for Sanju Samson, Trent Boult, Shimron Hetmyer and Kuldeep Sen to get off their fielding positions.
One out of Samson, Hetmyer, and Kuldeep would have taken the catch easily but miscommunication led to the collision and the ball rebounded off the keeper’s glove. Trent Boult who was just spectating the three fielders saw the ball coming towards him and without making any mistake he grabbed the ball. Here’s the video.
