Faf du Plessis, on Tuesday, took a brilliant catch to dismiss Ayush Badoni in the ongoing game between Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Lucknow Super Giants at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

After failing to score on the first two balls he faced, Ayush Badoni was under pressure and decided to go for the big shot. However, he probably picked the wrong shot. Yash Dayal bowled a slower bouncer outside the off stump and Badoni decided to hit it over extra covers.

With no good pace on the ball, he could not hit the ball far although it looked like the ball would land safely. However, Faf du Plessis had other ideas. The RCB skipper sprinted back and dived to take the catch with both hands. He did well to keep the ball safe in his hands even after hitting the ground.
