In the IPL 2012 match between Pune Warriors India and Rajasthan Royals, Johan Botha and Ajinkya Rahane threw something surprising. Pune’s Rahul Sharma blocked the ball long-off, Botha ran behind to take Cath. He got it right but was moving towards the border at some speed. Seeing Rohan behind him, he just gave it to him as soon as a great catch was completed. It was a perfect example of teamwork.
The assassin becomes a victim on this occasion. All the batsmen who fell into the brilliance of Kieron Pollard prayed to him for a taste of his own medicine. Bangalore had reduced Mumbai to five for 89 in the 13th over in pursuit of 186. Pollard was Mumbai’s final hope at the crease, and he kept Daniel Vettori high towards the long-off. Mithun came in centimeters from the boundary rope, trying to balance himself under the ball.
The Mumbai Indians cleared the dugout behind him as they expected Mithun to keep his balance by pulling the ball just above the boundary with his right hand where the ball was sitting. He made sure he didn’t fall because he was holding on to Skype with one hand. Pollard forced this on several batters in the tournament, and in his last inning of the season, he watched it happen.
Harmeet Singh was fielding in the over-leg on penalties as Deccan suffocated Bangalore in the Johannesburg final. Vinay Kumar crossed his stumps and was fine-legged by Ryan Harris.

Chris Lynn was an unknown player when it came to IPL 2014, although he was part of the Deccan Chargers and the then Sunrisers Hyderabad in the previous season. He hit 45 to take Kolkata to 150, and when they were in favor of it, he was the one who helped change the game. Lynn slipped as she moved forward and saw the ball hit her with a rope.
Then as soon as the ball came down, he went backward and held it to the air. Upon landing, he made sure he curled his body to avoid contact with the ropes. It was the game set, and the match was in Kolkata.
AB de Villiers
During the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2010, AB de Villiers was part of the Delhi Daredevils. Against the Royal Challengers Bangalore at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Delhi had smashed 183 and was in a comfort zone when the opposition was 137 for seven in the 18th over. As the game progressed, de Villiers illuminated the arena with a skimmer. Praveen Kumar gave place to Umesh Yadav and batted the flat towards long-on.
De Villiers seemed to have misunderstood it at first and took several steps forward. Realizing that it was traveling over him, de Villiers stretched out his hand and grabbed it with one hand. As soon as the speed of the ball took him back, he came very close to the limit. Considering how he made up for the misjudgment and spectacular airtime was a great interesting thing.

Once he regained his balance, he dived into the playground again to take inches off the field.
Ricky Ponting returned to the IPL after five years but had time to trade at-bat. However, there was a moment that stuck in the minds of the fans. Ponting exposed his old athleticism by bowling his old nemesis Harbhajan Singh as an open moon. The moon worked by the one that caught her line, and she got the outer edge. It moved from Ponting to the cover, but he ran and dived and carried it into mid-air. And if that were unbelievable, the scenes of Ponting embracing Harbhajan would have shocked you even more.

Kings XI Punjab was going nicely at 128 for two in 15.2 overs when Kieron Pollard pulled off this stunner to dismiss a dangerous-looking Shaun Marsh. Marsh hit the ball with all his might at mid-wicket, looking like a clean rope. Pollard, who was standing a bit in the square, ran towards the ball, and when he took the catch to the right, he was flying.
Pollard had to see the ball over his shoulder as he ran, making the catch even harder. It seemed like a certain boundary, but from where you can see all the adversity to a man and hold the bullet! When he grabbed it, he was standing with his arms towards the Mahali crowd.
Gurkeerat Singh Mann
Taylor has some swagger, and they get hurt when he hits. When Kings XI Punjab faced Warners India in Pune in IPL 2013, the game was one-sided in taking charge of the tourists. It was published by the great efforts of Gurukirat Singh Mann. Taylor started to walk to the other side of the stump and took the fine leg Ted Gurkirat was deep, but there was a little square. He ran to his left and reached out, and dived.
Mid-air, Gurkirat lashed out with a ball moving at some speed, and his teammates came to the ground after the celebration. The way the ball was hit had a boundary written around it. Gurkirat only made the impossible possible.
