Dream11 IPL 2020: Suryakumar Yadav grabs a screamer to send Rahul Tripathi packing

Kolkata began their innings in meticulous fashion without taking any unnecessary risks. However, just when Rahul Tripathi looked to up the ante, he was dismissed by a spectacular catch at backward point by Suryakumar Yadav. Having just hit a boundary off the previous ball, Tripathi went for another expensive cut which cost him big time.

It all happened on the final ball of the third over when Trent Boult bowled a short, wide delivery. Rahul Tripathi got into a great position as he slashed the ball towards backward point with brutal power. Suryakumar Yadav, who was stationed at backward point, showed his quick reflexes as he grabbed a sensational catch to dismiss Rahul Tripathi for 7(9).

In fact, Trent Boult who claimed Tripath's wicket could not believe that Yadav actually caught the ball, which was smashed with sheer power. The Kiwi pacer had a million-dollar reaction to Suryakumar Yadav's catch.

Meanwhile, Kolkata reached a respectable score of 148/5 after languishing at 61/5 at one stage. Skipper Eoin Morgan and Pat Cummins ensured that the two-time IPL champions didn't lose the plot after they were dented by early wickets. Morgan scored a 29-ball 39 while Pat Cummins remained unbeaten on a well-made 53 off 36. It will be interesting to see how Mumbai go about their chase on a tricky Abu Dhabi wicket.
