Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Glenn Maxwell dismissed Gujarat Titans’ Shubman Gill with a spectacular one-handed catch on Thursday, May 19 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Gujarat had won the toss and decided to bat first. GT openers Wriddhiman Saha and Shubman Gill walked out to start the innings. In the third over, Josh Hazlewood was handed the ball and in the third ball, he bowled a length ball to Shubman Gill. Gill was tempted to play it but the ball shaped away and took the outside edge.
Glenn Maxwell was standing at wide first slip reacted quickly. He stretched out his right hand, dived and grabbed a stunner.

“Guaranteed RCB not going to qualify”- Aakash Chopra
While previewing RCB’s must-win match against GT, former cricketer Aakash Chopra explained the qualification scenario of RCB on his YouTube channel.
“If RCB win today, they will reach 16 points and will give themselves a chance to qualify. But even then their qualification won’t be guaranteed as DC can also reach 16 with a win in their last game against Mumbai. So they will need to focus on their net run rate but first think of reaching 16. It is guaranteed that they aren’t going to qualify with just 14 points,” Chopra said.
“RCB played some great cricket in the initial part of the tournament and they seemed to have great balance. But there comes a time in every tournament when your big players need to step up. So when the likes of Kohli, Faf, Maxwell don’t score runs, the chances of your team winning gets damaged,” he added.
