Watch: Anuj Rawat plucks a one-handed stunner to dismiss Sam Curran | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Young Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) wicket-keeper Anuj Rawat on Monday grabbed a one-handed stunner to get rid of dangerous Punjab Kings all-rounder Sam Curran during the IPL match in Bengaluru.

The incident happened during the penultimate delivery of the 18th over, when pacer Yash Dayal‘s well-directed bouncer caught Curran off guard. He could only manage to get a glove on it with an attempted hook.

But an agile Rawat jumped to perfection, swaying backwards in the air to pluck a stunning catch with his right hand and ease.

Curran, who was looking for a late flourish, scored 23 off 17 balls with the help of three fours. Rawat, who scored a brisk 25-ball 48 in the tournament opener against the Chennai Super Kings, took four catches in the match.

“The communication has been very clear to me, as in batting down the order. As someone keeping wickets, you have to bat in the middle-order a lot,” Rawat said on Sunday in the pre-match presser.
The Delhi cricketer, who kept wickets for RCB in the last couple of matches during the IPL 2023, said his confidence level has improved.
“Last season also, I kept wickets in a few games, and it gave me more confidence, and as this season goes on, I am looking forward to contributing more as a wicketkeeper batsman,” Rawat added.
