Mitchell Starc, on Sunday (April 21), pulled off a sharp catch to dismiss Karn Sharma in the recently concluded game between Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens. 

The catch turned out to be a crucial one as KKR went on to win the thrilling game by just 1 run. After scoring two runs off the first two balls he faced, Karn Sharma was up against Mitchell Starc for the final over when his team needed 21 runs with only two wickets in hand.

KKR were definitely in the driver's seat at the start of the over before Karn Sharma turned the game on its head by hitting three sixes on the first four balls of the over. With 18 runs coming off the first four balls, RCB needed only three runs from the last two balls with Karn Sharma on strike.

At that stage, it looked like RCB would go on to clinch a famous win. However, there were still more twists and turns left in the game. On the fifth ball of the over, Mitchell Starc took a sharp catch in his follow-through to send back Karn Sharma.

It was a low full-toss from Starc as he attempted a yorker and Karn Sharma hit his shot straight back towards the pacer. The ball was very low but Starc still managed to get down and completed a sharp catch. 

Talking about the game, KKR bowled out RCB for 221 runs to win the game by one run. With three runs needed on the final ball to win the game, Lockie Ferguson was run out while trying to take the second run. The win has taken KKR back to the second spot in the points table

They now have five wins from seven games. RCB, on the other hand, are languishing at the bottom of the table after suffering their seventh defeat in eight games.
