IPL 2022: RCB fans fume as Anuj Rawat drops an absolute sitter

IPL 2022: Anuj Rawat dropped an easy catch of the dangerous Odean Smith in the crucial moment of the game and Twitterati cannot keep calm.

IPL 2022: Catches win matches. This statement always holds good in cricket. Irrespective of how brilliantly you perform on the field, certain catches at crucial junctures can change the course of the game. We saw a glimpse of the same in the recently concluded match as well.

Match number 3 of IPL 2022 featured the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Punjab Kings. Both teams crossed the 200 run mark and it was raining runs. A perfect match for a Sunday but not a good one from Bangalore’s perspective.

Punjab Kings won the toss and opted to field first. Both the teams knew the dew to be coming in the second innings. Hence, they wanted to bat second to get some assistance. However, Royal Challengers Bangalore were not very fortunate in this regard.

Faf Du Plessis’s strategy was to score as many runs in the first innings. Hence, he brilliantly led the team from the front. He played a magnificent knock of 88 runs which comprised of 3 boundaries and 7 sixes. Adequate assistance from Virat Kohli and Dinesh Karthik towards the end enabled Royal Challengers to post a total of 205 runs on the board.

Faf Du Plessis looked pleased with the batting display. He believed that it was an above par score despite the dew factor. However, things did not go as planned. Shikhar Dhawan and Mayank Agarwal set the stage for the chase perfectly.

They made the perfect use of the powerplay and amassed 71 runs in the first seven overs. Hasaranga introduced the much-needed breakthrough in the form of Mayank. However, Rajapaksa kept the run rate consistent all throughout.

The match was balanced until the 16th over wherein Punjab Kings were at 162 runs for the loss of 5 wickets. The 17th over proved to be the turning point of the game. Harshal Patel came into the attack while the dangerous striker, Odean Smith was on strike.

In his fourth delivery, he delivered a fuller ball. Odean Smith could not read the ball properly but decided to go for it. He had his weight dragging him and he hit it straight to the man at deep cover. Anuj Rawat was the man and everyone had started celebrating. However, he dropped an absolute sitter much to everyone’s disbelief. The same young man had taken 2 spectacular catches earlier but this catch definitely would have turned things into RCB’s favour. Odean Smith utilized this missed opportunity and comfortably took the team across the finishing line. There were varied reactions on Twitter on Anuj Rawat’s drop catch. Many of the fans were totally not pleased with this, while some backed him up.
