Krunal Pandya may not have contributed with his bat. But his bowling and fielding was something to take note of. Everyone knows how good an athlete he is and his contribution on the field covered his poor batting. Krunal Pandya took an amazing running catch to leave Jasprit Bumrah and umpires in awe.
The incident took place in the 16th over of the match when Jasprit Bumrah dismissed Deepak Chahar for a golden duck. The dismissal would not have been possible without Krunal Pandya as he pulled off an awesome catch at deep mid-wicket. Krunal’s catch was so amazing that not just Jasprit Bumrah but even umpires were all praise of him.
Krunal Pandya was awarded the man of the match trophy for his effort. Pandya also took two wickets to his name after he was dismissed for just 1 run in the first innings.
