The kind of player Will Jacks is, it needs something special from the opposition to get rid of him. The England player has already shown the extent of the damage he can inflict on the teams by scoring a 41-ball hundred against Gujarat Titans earlier in the ongoing IPL 2024.

The right-handed batsman started in a similar manner in the ongoing game between Punjab Kings and Royal Challengers Bengaluru as well. He raced away to 12 runs off 6 balls with the help of a four and a six before a brilliant catch from Harshal Patel ended his stay at the crease.

On the fourth ball of the fifth over, debutant Vidhwath Kaverappa bowled a slower ball on the pads and Will Jacks tried to hit it over Harshal Patel who was standing at backward square leg. The RCB batsman, however, failed to make a good connection although it still looked like he would be safe. However, Harshal Patel dived to his left to take a brilliant catch and sent back the hard-hitting batsman.

Watch the catch from Harshal Patel:

Talking about the game, RCB were on 84 for 2 in the seventh over at the time of writing this report. Virat Kohli and Rajat Patidar were batting in the middle for the Bengaluru-based outfit. Asked to bat first, RCB were off to a poor start as Vidhwath Kaverappa dismissed their captain Faf du Plessis (9), and Jacks cheaply inside the powerplay.

However, Kohli and Patidar have steadied the ship for the visitors in Dharamsala. RCB will be hoping that the duo make the most of their start and guide them to a winning total. The ongoing game is a do-or-die clash for both teams.

While the winning team will remain in contention for the playoffs, the losing team will be knocked out of IPL 2024. Both the teams have four wins and six losses so far.
