Kieron Pollard showed his class by taking a splendid catch on the boundary line at long on to dismiss Kevon Cooper in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 game against Rajasthan Royals. He showcased great balance to take the catch off Harbhajan Singh’s bowling. He lept in the air in an attempt to take the catch and then threw it up in the air, before showing superb balance to complete the catch. A superhuman effort from the athletic, Pollard at the boundary line.

While chasing a total of 179 runs on the board against Mumbai Indians in IPL 2014, RR lost their way.  The likes of Sanju Samson, Shane Watson and Unmukt flattered to deceive. None of them could adjust to the slowness of the track. Karun Nair though played well. He used deft placement to collect a few boundaries. However, after the completion of nine overs, Rajasthan camp will feel like they have a long way to go to chase down the target of 179 runs on the board.

Earlier, Jasprit Bumrah opened the bowling for Mumbai. Santokie, known for bowling with variations bowled the second over of the game. The left-armer bowled with decent variations for Mumbai. It was then Karun, who opened his shoulders to smash Santokie for a six. He also smashed Santokie for a boundary. However, his partner Chand was caught in the deep by Hussey off the bowling of Ojha, the slow left-arm orthodox. Shane Watson came into bat at No 3 position.

Both Michael Hussey and Lendl Simmons erected a solid platform for Mumbai to setup a large edifice against Rajasthan in IPL 2014 at Ahmadabad. In the end, they ended up with 178 for the loss of three wickets on the board.
