Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) all-rounder Cameron Green took a sensational catch during the match against Gujarat Titans (GT) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. Cameron Green claimed an extraordinary catch at the boundary line to dismiss GT skipper Shubman Gill.

Faf du Plessis opted to bowl after winning the toss at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday, April 28. The visitors made one change to their lineup, with Glenn Maxwell replacing Lockie Ferguson in the playing XI. Gujarat fielded the same lineup from the previous game.

RCB spinner Swapnil Singh secured an early breakthrough for his team by dismissing Wriddhiman Saha, who managed five runs off four balls in the first over. The home team managed just 42 runs in the powerplay as both Shubman Gill and Sai Sudharsan found it difficult to score.

The Wicket Will Be Better Later - Faf du Plessis

Speaking at the toss, Faf du Plessis stated that the wicket would improve later. He highlighted the changing nature of the game with many high scores. He noted the team's enhanced firepower in the middle order with Maxwell returning.

"The wicket will be better later, so we will like to chase. With so many high scores the nature of this game has changed, our bowlers have been exceptional in the last two games.
