Vijaykumar Vyshak, on Saturday (May 4), took a stunning catch to send back Rahul Tewatia in the ongoing game between Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Gujarat Titans at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.

RCB needed Tewatia's wicket to restrict GT to less than 150. The hard-hitting allrounder had already got the start and was batting on 35 runs off 20 balls in the 18th over. With two more overs left and GT on 136, Tewatia was looking set to take his team to a 160-plus total.

However, he could not provide the finishing touch to the innings as Vijaykumar Vyshak's stunning catch sent him back on the final ball of the 18th over. Left-arm pacer Yash Dayal bowled a short delivery and Tewatia went for a pull.

The GT allrounder was a bit late on the pull and ended up top-edging it towards third man. The ball was looking set to land safely but Vijaykumar Vyshak had other ideas. The RCB pacer ran towards his right before making a full-length dive to catch the ball.

Talking about the game, GT failed to finish their innings strongly, collecting only 11 runs after Tewatia's departure and were eventually bowled out for 147. Earlier in the innings, they were reeling at 19 for 3 before the likes of David Miller, Shahrukh Khan, and Tewatia helped them post a respectable total. For RCB, Mohammed Siraj, Dayal and Vijaykumar Vyshak picked up two wickets each.

"Quite happy as the team has done well. Glad that we could restrict them to 150-odd. Our bowling coach told be to hit the right areas, we executed our plans. We tried hard with the bouncers, happy that I got a couple of wickets.

"I have been working hard with the fielding coach, that is helping me. Taking one game at a time. It's a bit swollen, my both hands are swollen but I am okay. Pretty sure that we will get that total," said Vijaykumar Vyshak after the innings.
