The 21st match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 at Ekana Stadium between Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Gujarat Titans (GT) was a spectacle to behold for cricket aficionados. It not only featured impressive batting and bowling displays but also a remarkable moment where Lucknow’s star spinner, Ravi Bishnoi, displayed exceptional brilliance by taking a sensational follow-through catch to dismiss Gujarat Titans’ Kane Williamson. This catch not only swung the momentum in favor of Lucknow Super Giants but also captivated fans and commentators alike, who were left in awe of Bishnoi’s remarkable athleticism and skill.

Marcius Stonis’ stellar fifty and Nicholas Pooran’s finishing touch

Batting first, LSG’s innings was defined by Marcus Stoinis‘ stellar fifty and Nicholas Pooran‘s explosive late cameo. Despite losing wickets at regular intervals, Stoinis held firm, crafting a sublime 58 off 43 deliveries, while Pooran’s fiery 32 ensured a competitive total of 163/5 for the Lucknow-based franchise. Darshan Nalkande and Umesh Yadav impressed with the ball for Gujarat Titans, picking up two wickets each to stem the flow of runs.

A strong start by GT batters and LSG’s comeback

Gujarat Titans began their chase strongly, with Sai Sudharsan and Shubman Gill providing a solid foundation. However, the game took a dramatic turn as wickets tumbled in quick succession once Gill departed. Amidst the trouble, all eyes were on Williamson, who came in as an impact substitute and was expected to anchor the innings. But fate had other plans as Bishnoi intervened with his exceptional bowling and athleticism.

Ravi Bishnoi’s sensational caught and bowled

The moment of magic occurred in the 8th over when Bishnoi delivered a full-length ball, tempting Williamson into an on-drive. The Kiwi maestro failed to connect cleanly, resulting in a chip shot in the air. In a breathtaking display of reflexes, Bishnoi leapt to his right during his follow-through, extending his right hand to pluck the ball out of thin air. The stadium erupted as Bishnoi threw the ball skyward, rising to his feet with arms outstretched in triumph.
