On Sunday, the first double header and 26th match of the IPL 2020 is being played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals at Dubai International Stadium. After winning the toss, Sunrisers Hyderabad had decided to bat first. Meanwhile, Sanju Samson, who is fielding for Rajasthan Royals, took a stunning catch to depart SRH star opener Jonny Bairstow. The catch by Samson could be one of the best catches of the ongoing IPL season.
Thanks to the stunning catch by Samson, only 23 runs partnership between skipper David Warner and Jonny Bairstow could be attained. In the fifth over of the innings, Bairstow hit an excellent pull shot on the fourth ball off Karthik Tyagi but he failed to connect it properly and Sanju Samson, while running to the side of the boundary line, dived into the air to complete a tremendous catch.
Bairstow was surprised by this and had to go for 16 runs off 19 balls. With this, Hyderabad lost its first wicket.
