Watch: Rahul Tewatia has had an IPL campaign to remember in 2020 so far, scripting a pair of incredible turnarounds with bat in hand, and now he has added a stunner of a catch to his body of work.
He has impressed onlookers with his competitive spirit and never-say-die attitude, and utilised both, and a healthy dollop of athleticism, to dismiss Virat Kohli in Rajasthan Royals’ clash against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
He had not long before berated Robin Uthappa for his attempt at an outfield catch, and showed his senior teammate exactly how it was done.
His initial grab was impressive enough, taking a flat hit travelling at significant pace on the run. And when he realised his momentum would take him out of the field of play, he had the presence of mind to back hand the ball gently back in the air, giving himself time to change course, return to the field of play, and complete the catch.
While relay catches have become par for the course, Tewatia’s ranks among the more impressive. You can watch it below.
